Sailing Holidays in the Greek Islands

Greece is the undisputed home of sailing in the Mediterranean and remains our favourite place to sail! From the gin clear waters and gentle breezes of the Ionian Islands, to the picturesque ports and brilliant bays of the Sporades Islands, Greece offers a brilliant destination for all sailors. Take your time meandering from port to port, stopping for lunch and swims in beautiful bays along the way, before making the most of the afternoon breeze and sailing to your evening destination.

As we have experienced over the years, a crew could spend years sailing around Greece and still discover new bays, islands and harbours to explore. So if you feel like you have 'done Greece'...think again! We have bases in all of Greece's best sailing areas; the Ionian Islands, Cyclades Islands, Saronic Islands, Sporades Islands and Dodecanese. Whether you are completely new to sailing or whether you are an experienced sailors looking to introduce family or friends to sailling, there will be a destination in Greece to suit your needs.
