Combine sailing holidays and learn how to sail in the Ionian Sea, Greece, one of the most popular destinations worldwide for sailing.
No other place in the world can offer the sailing options that the Ionian Sea offers. The west Greek mainland and the Ionian Islands form an extensive coastline that provides countless protected bays and beaches of rare beauty, ideal for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. During the sailing period, the north-west prevailing winds (maisto) in the Ionian Sea are by far gentler than the north east prevailing winds (meltemi) in the Aegean Sea.
We plan our weekly cruises to combine recreation with training. We also plan to visit a different place every day, stopping for swimming in protected bays and beaches. Most evenings will be docked ashore, or day in anchor, around 7:00pm. Customized requests such as private cruises, couple custome courses and luxury yacht sailing can be arranged.
We offer ASA certifications up to 106 level. We also offer combined 101/103, 103/104, 104/105 and 105/106 as well as 118 (Docking Endorsement) courses.
ASA certified cruisers will have the opportunity to review the material taught on ASA courses and practice their skills under the guidance and advice of a certified ASA instructor. The Greek seas, with its the extensive coastline and large number of islands, is an excellent terrain for coastal navigation training.
