Serious Sailing

8 Days from £1,350 per person

Whether you are a serious sailor or you are have just started your yachting adventure, joining one of our luxury yachts is a trip of lifetime. This itinerary is created for those who dream of some high performance sailing and are ready for the ultimate holiday spent under canvas.  The exact route will of course always be subject to the weather and safe mooring choices, however your Captain will work with you to ensure you enjoy the perfect holiday, enjoying as much time under sail as possible.

You will explore the best bays and villages, starting at Corfu and wending your way South to Kefalonia, via Paxos, Lefkas, Ithaca and Meganissi – visiting the Faraway Islands on your way back to Gouvia Marina, with a stunning combination of ‘upwind’ and ‘downwind’ sailing days, taking advantage of the prevailing Greek winds.

The route involves a large amount of time spent under canvas, but there is always time to use our various on board “water sports toys” (include water-skiing, wakeboarding, ringo, windsurfing, SUP and snorkelling).

For those looking for the ultimate serious sailing experience, we would recommend either Lunous or Argentous.  They are the most powerful sailing yachts in our fleet, with differing sail plans for exquisite choice.

Day 1

Arrive and transfer to the marina, after a short briefing the skipper will  get you out of the marina in the quickest time and find a nice anchorage for a late afternoon swim and a relaxing dinner on board

 

Day 2

After breakfast you will be ready to sail. Our aim on this trip is to make the most of the yacht and include as much sailing as possible. This means around 5 or 6 hours of improving your sailing skills a day. Even if you are complete beginner at the start of the week by the end you should be able to have the competence and confidence to take the helm yourself and enjoy the thrill of sailing a superyacht.

Day 3-7

For groups who want to cover more miles, then a route with a loop down to the South Ionian (Lefkas, Meganisi and Kefalonia) is a great option. You will take in some chic villages like Fiskardo on Kefalonia and some of the quieter islands such as Ithaca. This route is comfortably doable as long as good winds are forecast.

In the absence of a good breeze, the route can be adjusted to ensure you do as much sailing as possible – and don’t forget about great tavernas for dinner on the way or beautiful quiet bays where you can have a lazy breakfast.

Day 8

Time to say goodbye. Our driver will pick you up and take you to the airport. By that time you might want to start planning your next sailing holiday to improve your skills.

A 7 night/8 day trips starts from £1350 per person for 8 people in the early and late season.

The crew will do everything on the boat but if you want to get involved in the sailing you are very welcome and our skippers love to give informal tuition
