This experience, in a nutshell

We will leave Saturday 7 July from Siracusa for the 320 nautical miles to Patras.
Seas can be heavy during our crossing so be prepared for some serious sailing!
I will be accompanied by one of my best sailing mates, allowing you to either "sit back and enjoy the ride" or participate actively in the day and night crossing.
After resting somewhere around Patras we will set sail for the Corinthian channel, which weatherwise can be a challenge once we head out for Athens. So bring foulweather gear, although we expect the sun to always shine!

I will have on board my co-skipper Rob S. to help me and grant even more safety.

Luxury sailing on Swan 65 exploring the Dodecanese

Pieter is a great skipper. We enjoyed 10 days sailing in the Dodecanese always safe and comfortable. The boat is amazing as she is maniacally cared of and full of unexpected equipment. Pieter can entertain for hours with stories of his sailing adventures and boat making and maintenance. Highly recommended

This flight from Syracuse to Kefalonia in just 36 hours is unforgettable! Unforgettable the starry skies of the Mediterranean, the milky way and the moon contemplated in this offshore navigation on the oldest route to Greece. Pieter, own and skipper, proved to be skilled, experienced and as his friend Rob tireless sailors. Pieter has shown surprising resource in managing this navigation that in some moments has turned in a real adventure. And despite the effort required by the shifts of uninterrupted navigation, in my night of seakness, Pieter has found away to nurture me carefully. The boat proved to be an unsurpassable vessel! Enjoy!

Come prima esperienza Sailsquare non avrei potuto essere più fortunato. Pieter è lo skipper che tutti dovrebbero avere quando decidono di fare una vacanza su una barca a vela. Capace, competente, simpatico e smart, infonde anche in chi affronta per la prima volta l'esperienza della navigazione a vela un senso di totale sicurezza. La sua barca, uno Swan di 65 piedi tenuto alla perfezione, è quanto di meglio si possa desiderare per navigare a vela. A tutto ciò si aggiungano compagni di viaggio simpatici e piacevoli e si ottiene una vacanza quasi perfetta. Un grazie sincero a Pieter, a Cesare, Antonia, Alberto, Tommaso e alla bellissima Benedetta per avermi regalato otto stupendi giorni.
