Athens & Saronic Gulf Islands

The Saronic islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses and the Peloponnese coast offer smooth sailing sheltered from strong winds. The Saronic route is highly recommended for easy sailing, especially in July & August to avoid the strong meltemi winds blowing in the Cyclades.

 

People choose flotillas for a variety of reasons. It’s popular with those who appreciate the support of the lead crew but also with those who have sailed many times before who enjoy the sociable side of a flotilla and the local knowledge and reassurance that the lead crew provide – useful if you’re new to the cruising area. During the school holidays flotillas are particularly popular with families who enjoy an active holiday together.



One week the flotilla follows the SARONIC ROUTE. Visit the beautiful island of Aegina and Epidavros, the health resort of Ancient Athenians - the theatre is well worth a visit. Poros is a busy town quay very popular for a typical Greek night out.

 

The following week the flotilla follows the ARGOLIC ROUTE south of Poros. The yachts raft up in the beautiful anchorages near Port Heli, before returning via Poros The flotilla returns to Athens at the end of each week, while the 2-weekers enjoy a couple of days free sailing before meeting up for the welcome drinks party. You’ll be met at the airport and taken to your yacht, a 40-minute taxi ride straight to the marina. An excellent supermarket is within easy walking distance. Your fridge will be chilling and there’s a welcome pack on every yacht .

 

Kalamaki Marina is a taxi or tram ride from the centre of Athens. On your first evening, enjoy dinner in the famous Plaka area of Athens, with a view of the Acropolis, or chill out in one of the

restaurants in or near the marina.
