Greece Sailing Holiday / Trip in May
May 12th – 19th 2018
Athens to Kos – One Way Sailing
Greece sailing in May for a great fun time holiday in good company. This is a fantastic opportunity to have time in early sunshine in the Med, top up the tan along with learning new skills, develop your existing knowledge on larger boats and adding some mileage to your log book.
On this trip we are actually ‘going somewhere’ starting from Athens and leaving the yacht at Kos 7 days later. You will add approximately 200 – 240 Nm to your logbook.
The emphasis is on fun and learning with formal ‘teach in’ sessions every morning. You will visit and see a host of different Greek Islands and lovely ports with a ready made social scene aboard this luxurious 45 foot cruiser!
‘Buy A Berth’ Take a cabin or berth aboard our fantastic 45 – 51 ft large yachts with Skipper They have 4 / 5 cabins, (3 toilets / showers) and give great space aboard for fast comfortable cruising in warm sunny climes. These are cracking boats and if you haven’t sailed a big boat before you’ll be amazed at the space – the deck height head clearance and big cabins. (Own Cabin Option available from £885)
Excellent tuition is available all week in a relaxed style, practise your passage planning and a bit of navigation, act as ‘skipper on-board’ the boat but under guidance – or just kick back and join in the sailing elements when you want to. We take any experience level on this trip and we try to keep the saloon areas clear using just the cabins so that there is plenty of space aboard. We aim to have 6 clients aboard a 45 foot yacht and 7 on board a 50 footer.
First day would be a shake down sail from Alimos Marina in Athens with only about 30Nm so nice easy relaxed stages and nothing too fraught so don’t be put off by the thought of constant long passages. We need to average about 40 Nm a day so even if we have a ‘rest day’ it means we still do not need to cover more than 50 miles every 24 hrs. We make sure that we have time to relax each day so there is plenty of time to relax and swim etc. and we try to stop every day for lunch and a chance for people to have a quick dip.
Fantastic scenery and great fun sailing in good company.
