Brief description of the holiday
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.
Our boat is the first of the famous Sparkman and Stephens designed Swan 65 ketch line. This line of yachts is known for its superior hull strength. the Swan 65 is a timeless classic. Its classic interior is in a typical style Nautor style with matte-finish teak. Separate features for extra comfort, as well as separate shower stall in the cabin owners and improved seating, among other details. The salon is particularly comfortable and the open-plan galley is very well equipped. She has airconditioning throughout, a 180 liter per hour watermaker and bread baking machines. She can be equipped for cruising, long distance passage making or racing. One travels in forgone style and luxury.
