Brief description of the holiday
NB: The remaining two places are for two women, in a triple
cabin to be shared with another woman!
A carefully crafted sailing holiday for singles, couples and small group of friends who are open to meet new faces and share the fun.
The trip starts from Syros island, right in the heart of Cyclades offering safe and comfortable passages to the most stunning hidden gems.
Each day brings us on a different Cycladic island, with sailing time from 2-4hrs.
Plenty of time during the day to swim, snorkel, enjoy the Greek sun and the crystal clear water anchored in selected bays. The evenings will find us in picturesque villages, exploring ashore, with various optional activities. Each day ends with a delicious meal based on the recognised Greek cuisine.
Unparalleled comfort on a large and carefully maintained 56ft sailing yacht. The layout offers maximum privacy featuring 5 cabins for guests, each with its own WC.
George, your greek skipper and local guide is big part of the success of this trip. Positive, friendly, knowledgable, with a very personal and professional approach!
Welcome to Syros right at the heart of Cyclades. We are equally excited and looking forward to spending an unforgeable sailing week together around the hidden gems of the Greek islands.
Arriving at the beautiful Finikas Marina where our trip starts, you can drop your luggage at the boat and enjoy a splash in the nearby crystal clear water or a tasteful lunch right in front of the marina, awaiting the check-in time, which is at 14:00. Everyone is on board and after our 30min briefing we sail out to Serifos island.
Our first swim stop takes place in the beautiful beach of Psili Ammos following an anchorage at Livadi bay. We enjoy the local cuisine for our dinner at the little port village of Serifos, reachable by dinghy.
We wake up at Serifos bay and after breakfast there is an optional activity of walking up to the top of Chora, the main Serifos village with the breathtaking view. We sail out to Sifnos later in the afternoon, just after our swim and lunch. Arriving at Vathi of Sifnos we enjoy our evening swimming and later find ourselves around the table of beautiful seafront taverna discussing the day’s highlights.
First thing in the morning after breakfast is getting a short bus ride to Artemonas to experience the whitewashed path to nearby Apollonia, the capital of Sifnos. After enjoying our coffee with locals a short taxi ride to the famous Castro with a limitless view to blue of the Aegean Sea. We head back to the boat for sailing out after lunch. Passing by Despotiko we reach the south bays of Antiparos for a refreshing splash in the crystal clear water and a seafront dinner hard to forget
Taking advantage of the morning wind we sail to Iraklia island. A population of approximately 80 people during the winter, kept this little paradise off the beaten tack of mainstream tourism. Enjoy a really picturesque place. Relaxing on the beach, having drinks with view to the boat, walking at the top of the hill for the sunset. The team will gather for an unforgettable dinner in a family tavern, experiencing the Greek hospitality and approachability.
Koufonisi is our next destination, just a few nautical miles away for our morning relaxing sail. Grab your towel and explore the simply stunning island. Walking north on the coastline you experience the one of a kind magic beaches, you take a dip in natural lagoon made of rocks, try the local snacks at Pori beach at the very north of the island. Enjoy this well-deserved blessed piece of land.
Early start to Naxos, the largest -in surface- island of the Cyclades. An endless sandy beach on the west side of the island and the sea front picturesque main village. No doubt you could literally spend days and days to explore. Take a glimpse to the Greek history walking up the white washed alleys, experience history, art, different tastes of local goodies, discover inspired gifts for your beloved ones back home. Rent bike and reach the nearby beaches, let your skipper organise windsurfing lessons for you or a half day road trip to the inland villages. After a whole day exploring we gather all for our dinner, sharing the fun, the thoughts and the highlights.
Off we go to nearby Paros. Enjoy the sandy beaches of the island. You can optionally experience water sports or just enjoy the Greek sun on the beach or on deck. A few hours later, sailing for lunch to Ermoupoli the capital of Cyclades your skipper drops you so that you take full advantage of the day and sails the boat to Finikas Marina, where you will rejoin late in the evening for dinner.
Ermoupoli with its 19th-century architecture, is always full of life. Explore the pedestrianized streets and some of the finest tastes in Cyclades. You can optionally visit Ano Hora, the old town on the top of the hill. The end of the day will find you all back to Finikas for your last dinner in front of the water.
Time to say goodbye. Sharing and sailing a full week in all those new fascinating places created new friends and triggered lifetime unforgettable memories.
Morning 08:30am we do checkout at Marina Finikas of Syros just where we started. We will help you with your luggage to the taxi which can take you to Syros airport or ferry station at Ermoupoli.
We can optionally organise for you a private sea transfer to Athens (2hrs) or any other island with our in-house all-weather motor boat.
Ocean Star 56
Welcome to my Ocean Star 56, a true sailing boat. Not made to stay in the ports but to be out there and take you to your next island, in full comfort and with an unparalleled seakeeping. The secret is based on the rigid construction of high displacement, the forgiving hull design and generous sailplan. A real mile-eater with the power of the wind.
My Ocean Star 56 features full teak deck which delivers a fantastic feeling under your feet. Then comes your private bow sundeck and an aft swim platform for easy access to the water. Under the rich shade of the bimini, a very spacious cockpit which includes a big table for your seafront meals.
PRIVACY & VERSATILITY
5Cabins / 5 WCs layout + crew amenities
It is about you and making the most out of your sailing holidays! And in order to feel so you need to feel home, to sleep well and to combine private with social time. My beautiful yacht offers all that, having one of the most versatile and comfortable layout for charter yachts of this size.
The versatility between double beds and bunk beds in the five passenger cabins, the separate WC for each cabin, the separate skipper's cabin/wc, the very wide saloon and galley area and the well ventilated, sunny interior is hard to match on any other yacht out there of less than 65ft
