Saronic Gulf flotilla from Poros

Elan sailing

Flotilla sailing saronic gulf

Poros flotilla (via Athens)

The conditions in the Saronic gulf, Argolic gulf and along the eastern coast of the Peloponnese are ideal for sailing with predictable and steady breezes over the day. This flotilla covers a northern or a southern route over the course of a week.

The northern route in the Saronic Gulf visits the charming ports of Perdika, Vathi, Palea Epidavros and Korfos each boasting its own special character and charm. The southern route visits the renown and uniquely pretty islands of Hydra & Spetses together with the harbours of Ermioni, Astros or Plaka.

During the summer there is also the chance to join the 2 week Eastern Peleponese flotilla which goes as far south as Monemvassia or even up to Kythira.

This flotilla boasts a superb fleet of yachts, consistant winds and a perfect starting and finishing point away from busy shipping lanes and in the middle of a wonderful and varied sailing area.

The narrow waterway between Poros and the mainland makes a great natural harbour for our Saronic Gulf flotilla home base, complete with waterfront tavernas and bars. From here the first week normally takes you north via Epidavros, with its fabulous amphitheatre, to visit the floating fruit and veg boats in the pistachio and pottery port of Aegina town. En route you will drop anchor at sleepy Perdika, Korfos and Vathi.

Week two will take you south of Poros in the mythical and sheltered waters of the ArgolicGulf, visiting Ermioni, typically Greek and reputed to be the site of the first regatta in history, then Hydra, rich in local art where cars are banned and donkeys rule the road. Slowing things right down for the final few days you will sail around the delightful fishing ports of Plaka and Astros. Moving on you will anchor in a secluded bay for the beach party. For free sailing, try Baltiza creek to visit Spetses in a horse-drawn carriage, Then back to Poros our charming base port for our farewell eveing to our Greece flotilla.
