Day 5 – Wednesday: Perra Pigadi, Ithaka to Fiscardo, Kefalonia: Our day started with a delicious onboard pasta meal as we sailed towards Fiscardo, Kefalonia. After reaching our destination, we hiked to Foki Bay, indulging in some exhilarating cliff jumping and exploring the caves. As the evening settled in, we relaxed with refreshing cocktails and savored a delightful meal at a charming taverna called Parnassos. The evening then turned towards Grekos bar where we danced the night away to rock anthems into the early hours.
Day 6 – Thursday: Fiscardo, Kefalonia to Kastos: We began the day with a delightful breakfast at Captain’s Cabin before setting off on a very calm and sunny downwind sail to Kastos. No reefing needed there, and we even managed to get a nice goose wing going. We enjoyed the tranquil beauty of the island, indulging in activities such as long lining. Later, we relished windmill cocktails and a delicious meze meal including Calamari, Greek salads, and Saganaki.
Day 7 – Friday: Kastos to Lefkas Marina: Our journey back to Lefkas Marina included a delightful motor sail and a fishing excursion. We made a memorable stop at Goat Bay, where we took a refreshing swim. Back at Lefkas, we celebrated with birthday drinks for Liv, marking the end of a fantastic sailing charter.
Day 8 – Saturday: Farewell and Return to London: As our incredible sailing adventure came to a close, we sadly bid farewell to the Ionian Sea and Brando, who had been an excellent home for the week! All the group are excited for our next charter adventure!
The biggest success of the trip was that we were all able to clear our minds of our day-to-day life and immerse ourselves in the Sailing charter and Greek culture. The relaxing atmosphere mixed with the beauty of every bay and port is the reason that the South Ionian is one of my favorite destinations for sailing charters. I’d also like to commend MG Yachts on a brilliant service.
