Flotilla Sailing Holidays in Greece

Flotilla sailing holidays are ideal for anyone who prefers to sail in the company of others but still have command of their own vessel. On the lead yacht there is your flotilla leader who organises regular meetings for all the skippers. He or she will inform you about the weather conditions, the route, possible lunchtime anchorages and the techniques of Mediterranean mooring. If you forget anything later, you can still check with your flotilla leader on the VHF. Once you arrive at the meeting point your lead crew will help you to moor and secure a safe spot in your new anchorage. They are your link with local people and facilities and attractions on shore. You can get information about sightseeing, shopping, and nice restaurants. Your fleet leader feels responsible for your enjoyment of the holiday and the smooth running of the flotilla.

Argo-Saronic Gulf (Aegina)

ARGOLIC & SARONIC GULF ISLANDS - PELOPONESE FLOTILLA

The advantage of starting your holiday from Poros rather than from Athens is that you are immediately in the heart of the islands and can avoid the long sailing leg from Athens to the islands, which is often heavy with commercial traffic. Instead, scheduled flights direct to Athens are a short taxi or bus trip from the main port of Pireaus, from where you can catch a fast ferry to Poros. This route brings you close to nature and an area steeped in history and legend. Idyllic sailing with predictable steady breezes with plenty of secluded anchorages and swimming spots. From the enchanting island of Poros, some favourite islands to visit include Hydra, Spetses, Perdika as well as Plaka and the ancient theatre of Epidavros.

The Ionian islands are famous among flotilla enthusiasts because of their green and tranquil bays, short sailng legs and popularity with other flotilla sailors!

This itinerary explores some of the most beautiful locations in the Ionian archipelago, including Lefkas, Cephalonia, Zakynthos, Ithaka and Meganissi.

The Sporades islands

SPORADES ISLANDS FLOTILLA

Back again with a new programme and some brand new yachts, the Sporades flotilla is available with flights to/from Skiathos from the UK, or flotilla only.

The programme begins in the traditional small port of Loutraki on Skopelos, only a hop away from Skiathos by water taxi. There are two programmes to choose from: the Sporades route visiting the more remote northern islands as well as Skopelos and Alonissos, or the Pelion route which visits Skiathos, Volos and some delightful bays and anchorages in between.

Dodecanese islands flotilla

DODECANESE ISLANDS FLOTILLA

This beautiful and historic area has until now been the preserve of savvy bareboat clients, who have already discovered the tremendous amount the area has to offer. The combination of some of the better known and more cosmopolitan Greek Islands such Kos, with its noted ancient sites and great beaches, with some of the smaller and lesser known gems of the Dodecanese such as Nysiros, Halki or Symi, plus a visit to Turkey and the stunning Aegean coast, make this an irresistible proposition for more experienced sailors.

Charter flotilla handbookNo matter which sailing area you choose you will share experiences of a lifetime. Your average daily sail of 15 - 20 miles gives you enough time to swim, snorkel, visit remote bays, or spend more time at your destination. We always keep in mind that the weather runs the itinerary and sometimes your leaders might have to change the route to ensure safety.

The Charter Flotilla Handbook


EXPERIENCE
For flotilla charters, there should usually be at least one person certified with an internationally recognised skipper's licence on board (RYA Day Skipper, ICC or equivalent), and at least one qualified crew member (RYA Competent Crew), but if no documents are available for the co-skipper, it is usually possible for him/her to sign a declaration that he/she has previous experience. Alternatively a skipper can be hired for a fee and sailing instruction can be offered while on board.

Each sailing area also has its own RYA sailing school, bareboat charters and cruises. Please enquire.

THE YACHTS
We have a variety of yachts that can be chartered from different bases. All the yachts are in excellent condition and fulfill all the Greek government safety regulations.
