We will sail on 6 sailboats and a catamaran with increasing levels of comfort according to the proposed boarding classes, but all recent (from 2013 onwards), super spacious (from 45 feet / 14m up), and equipped with various options - for to be able to move easily and in full comfort.
Who we are? We are a group of skippers, fraternal friends, with hundreds of miles behind us and a great desire to sail again with old and new friends!

OUR ITINERARY - Week 1
Meet at the Marina of Lefkas near the Zorbas bar restaurant. Departure from the port of Lefkada around 7:00 pm for the bay of Akra Parathira to enjoy the sunset while sailing.
Departure at 9:00 am for the splendid Formikule islets where the rocks create natural pools, submerged caves, and an almost Caribbean backdrop where green and blue constantly fade to create plays of color. In the afternoon, sail to the beautiful Kastos with night at anchor.
Departure at 10 am and sail to Atokos (until you see it you don't believe it) one of the least known but most beautiful places in the area. Snorkeling, aperitif and lunch. In the afternoon, sail to Ithaca along the lands of Ulysses to the bay of Sarakiniko beach with its white rocks and blue water where we throw the anchors for dinner.
At midnight, weather permitting - departure for a splendid navigation under the stars towards Zakynthos where we plan to arrive at the wreck beach (one of the most beautiful beaches in the world) early in the morning to enjoy its beauty before the arrival of tourists.
Ride on the ground to see wreck and snorkel, at 11:30 when the mass arrives ... we will escape towards the blue caves on the extreme north of Zakynthos to have lunch on a stupendous view and steep depths.
In the evening we will turn towards the bay of Nikolaos where we will be able to choose whether to stop at anchor or enter the harbor (if fresh water is scarce ...).
Departure for Ithaca to dive into the beautiful bay of Plakes for lunch and relax. In the afternoon, a small navigation to Skhoinos near Vathy for night at anchor and if we want, a nice aperitif on the ground at sunset with a party.
Good mid-August !!!
We will celebrate it starting calmly around 10 and sailing to the beautiful Syvota bay, stopping halfway for lunch. Here the only problem will be to choose the restaurant for dinner (we know a couple of remarkable ones) and enjoy the party on the ground organized in a restaurant by our staff.
Departure at 10 am for Meganisi to slip into the maze of coves that can be seen to the north east of the island and have lunch in a wonderful place. Lunch, baths and last night.
Kisses, hugs and disembarkation by 9 am (unless you have two weeks)
