Sailing in the Greek islands: freedom and adventure
Every boat trip in the Aegean, Ionian, Argosaronic and around the Peloponnese, is a trip to Greece’s ancient and modern history. The famous prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri in Santorini, and the cavernous villages of the Caldera with its inspiring architecture: Fira, Imerovigli, Oia. The Proto-Cycladic settlement of Skarkos in Ios, and its classical Cycladic Hora. Delos in its entirety, the most significant archaeological site in the Aegean.
Nearby Mykonos, synonymous with luxury and non-stop fun. Rhodes, with its Old Town and Lindos, and their mediaeval ambience. Knossos and Faistos in Crete, as well as the old cities of Hania and Rethymnos. Corfu, with its Venetian charm, whose town has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site. Its imposing fortresses are considered masterpieces of fortification. And of course, Attica, with Sounion and Athens’ awe-inspiring Parthenon and world-renowned New Acropolis Museum. Drop your anchor and explore. Every destination has a fascinating history.
Wherever the wind blows
In Ancient Greece they were called Etesian, today the Greek winds are called Meltemi. They are the seasonal north winds that reach 5-7 Beaufort, and exist in the Aegean from May until September. They are the reason windsurf and kitesurf enthusiasts love coming here. They are the magnet that attracts competitive sailors, as they provide ideal sailing conditions, and reduce the distance between the Aegean.
