2017 CRUISE PROGRAMME
THE CYCLADES ROUTE

Departing every Sunday from 23 April to 22 October - 7 or 14 nights, except in August when
the itinerary will alternate between Mykonos and Santorini (see below)

Share a sail in the Cyclades
Explore the stunning islands of the Cyclades aboard a fully crewed 52 foot sailing yacht. This island-hopping sailing adventure is an ideal way to discover the islands of the Aegean in comfort and safety with a professional crew on board to look after you. Whether you are an experienced sailor or just looking for a relaxing introduction to sailing, this is the perfect blend of sun, sea and scenery.

Each new day brings another island to explore
Set sail from Lavrion (flights to Athens then transfer by bus or taxi) and explore the wonderful islands of Kea, Kithnos and Syros amongst others before sailing into Santorini at the end of your first week. Explore the vibrant cosmopolitan island before leaving the yacht or, better still, continuing for a second week of sailing. From Santorini you will visit more beautiful islands before sailing back towards Lavrion.

Ocean Star 51.1

The only way to travel
There are two boats operating these cruises through the summer. Sailing Yacht Christiana VII is an Ocean Star 51.2 and the perfect vessel for your Greek sailing adventure, with 4 spacious cabins. (3 cabins are en suite (CAT A), 2 double and 1 twin bunks) and one twin bunks cabin (CAT B) shares a bathroom with the crew.

A maximum of eight guests are on board, together with an experienced, professional crew (skipper and cook/hostess/co-skipper) to look after you. Breakfast and a light lunch is included, to be enjoyed in the spacious cockpit whilst anchored in an idyllic bay. Enjoy a refreshing swim before or after lunch, the choice is yours.

A voyage of discovery
After a day on the water with the wind in your hair, enjoy the sunset in the cockpit before exploring the local area. Most days you will reach harbour in the afternoon so there’s plenty of time to relax, go sightseeing or swimming before choosing a waterside taverna for dinner. Sample the local specialities, which vary from island to island and make this a voyage of culinary discovery as well as exploring the historical and cultural delights of these beautiful islands.
