The Ionian Sea is known for mild winds in summer and a sailing playground ideal for smooth sailing and relaxing hours. It offers endless cool and idyllic nights in secluded bays of unique beauty. Lots of sun, lots of moments of pleasure, lots of music and lots of fun & relaxation.🍷⛵️⚓️🎶 You and your fellow travelers will get to know each other over 7-days at sea and grow together as a crew. I already have 10-years skipper experience and over 5000 nautical miles completed and have already trained and coached aspiring skippers. I will help you steer the yacht and explain the first sailing basics to the newbies - so, you don't need to bring any experience and can look forward to a relaxed and unique adventure. Do you know the feeling of floating over the globe lost in thought? We live in an accelerated world - on board we will really slow down and fight with the wind instead of against it. I love sharing my passion, so let me know if you want to do more than just pitch in and I'll whisk you away into the world of a sailing captain. ⚓ Start marina 9.7.2022 (from 18:00): Marina Argostoli ⚓ End-Marina 16.7.2022 (from 17:00): D-Marina Lefkas Marina ⛵ Yacht: We will discover the Greek Ionian Islands with a brand new Dufour 46 GL (2018). You can book alone or as a couple and you will be accommodated in a double cabin. The cabin allocation will be done on the 1st day of the cruise in consultation with the whole crew. We divide the same sex in the cabins, unless it does not work out from the crew division. But even then we always find a good solution, usually some people prefer to sleep on deck under the stars. 🏝 The crew (max. 8 people): We are a younger troop from Switzerland between 25 and 45 years. From complete beginners to advanced sailors, all are welcome. We will coordinate and vacation sailing is the focus with lots of sun, music and just time to enjoy. 🛫 Arrival on 9.7.2022 / return 16.7.2022 from/to Athens: Recommended arrival on 9.7.2022 to Argostoli airport, Kefalonia. We meet on 9.7.2022 at 17:00 directly in the marina and prepare for the trip (shopping, safety briefing, trip planning, etc.). Here you will also meet the crew, which has already sailed on part 1 and has booked the 2-week sailing trip. Return trip Athens: Here we will take a local bus directly to Athens. The ticket costs about EUR 30. Alternatively you can travel back directly from the airport Aktio, Preveza. 💰 Additional costs for food, drinks and excursions: The indicated cost for the Dufour 460 GL yacht is for one berth each. In addition, there is the obligatory on board expenses for food, drinks, fuel and mooring fees, tourism tax. These vary depending on weather, itinerary and appetite of the crew. According to experience these individual costs are about EUR 150.- per week.

Shipwreck Beach (Navagio) Viewpoint

Day 2

When visiting the island of Zakynthos, Navagio - or Shipwreck Beach is simply a must. You can reach it from the water by boat or see it from a viewing platform above the cliffs. The play of colors is incredibly impressive. The rocks, the brilliant white beach, which really looks as if different sized pearls had been heaped up here, the incredible blue tones of the sea, it's all unique.

Λιμάνι Ιθάκης

Kioni

Day 4-5

Kioni is located south of a headland in the bay Ormos Kioni on Ithaca. The harbor is lined with the white houses of the village and one quickly gets the impression that Kioni has more houses than inhabitants. In fact, the number of inhabitants has declined sharply in recent years. Yachts moor at the quay with bow or stern in water depths of 2.5 to 6 meters.

The choice of the bay will be made by the crew. Who knows, maybe the celebration can be organized with another yacht? Surely an unforgettable adventure.

Kastos

Day 7-8

There is no package tourism yet; however, the island, which is quite difficult to reach, is becoming more and more popular among sailors as a port. There are accommodations and taverns at the harbor. Bathing bays are also available.

Day 8-9

Nydri

Day 8-9

What is particularly remarkable about Nydri, however, is that tourism here is almost entirely confined to the narrow strip between the harbor and the main road: as soon as you turn your back on the sea and leave the main road behind you, you are literally immersed in another world: small alleys lead past old houses in which little gardens grandma and grandpa are hard at work. And every piece of uncultivated land is immediately overgrown by lush nature.
