Destinations

Ideal sailing areas for lessons are the Cyclades islands and the Saronic Gulf. In summer months the winds are strong in these areas, so you can combine amazing destinations with challenging sailing conditions! The western Cyclades, Kea, Kythnos and Sifnos islands offer picturesque coves for relaxing, while their ports offer good conditions to practice berthing ('stern-to' or the Mediterranean berthing). 

The prevailing wind of summer months in the Aegean Sea is the strong north wind, what the locals call the "meltemi". When the meltemi is too strong, we prefer to sail in the area of the Saronic Gulf. Amazing destinations expect us, the historic islands of Hydra and Spetses with their picturesque ports, as well as uninhabited islets, such as Dhokes and Moni. Enjoy ideal sailing conditions, learn how to sail and visit unique destinations.

Basic skills taught during the sailing week:

  • Steer the helm

  • Basic knots
