Choose any of the  5 different navigation areas / destinations: Cyclades (often windy & warm), Ionian (calm & green), Dodecanese and Sporades areas (with moderate winds), Saronic & Argolic Gulf (sheltered) where you can plan your own or follow one of the suggested routes and itineraries.

Sailing to Myconos and Santorini

Many people wish to sail in Greece & the Aegean sea in order to see the two Greek islands of Myconos & Santorini. The following refers to those who plan to see the two Greek islands/areas or just Santorini islandwithin one WEEK CHARTER o­nly.
We welcome their wishes and in order we avoid any misunderstandings or non-feasible planning, we have to say in advance that in the Aegean Sea there are often N winds blowing with force 30-40 miles per hour.
For experienced sailors this can be "a piece of cake" but for others ... not so much.

Another issue is the distance and the duration of charter:
Mykonos is East at 90 Nautical miles away from Athens and  Santorini is South East at 130 Nautical miles away from Athens and the distance between Mykonos and Santorini is some 75 miles.
Given that a sailing yacht makes 5-8 knots miles per hour, and it is easy to calculate lots of hours o­nboard for a trip Athens-Mykonos-Santorini-Athens just in order to cover the distance.

CATAMARAN sailing holidays in GREECE

Catamaran sailing in Greece becomes more and more popular for yacht charter holidays  mainly because they provide better stability, performance at flat and rough waters, a dry soft & smooth horizontal sailing ride and easy handling.
People charter catamaran in the Greek islands (and everywhere) because they enjoy more space on deck and into the cabins and also because they do not lean like mono-hulls and because their shallow draft allows access where all keel boats can’t go.
