The Saronic Flotilla from Athens is ideal for sailors who have already sailed in the Ionian. Reliable winds and good sailing without being too challenging. Highlights of this flotilla sailing holiday include the amphitheatre at Epidavros and the islands of Poros, Aegina and Hydra - a great mix of modern and ancient Greek culture.
Our Athens flotilla starts from Kalamaki Marina in the heart of Athens and sails among the beautiful islands of the Saronic Gulf.
Choose from a huge range of yachts in the Kiriacoulis fleet and explore the Saronic Gulf led by an experienced flotilla skipper and hostess. This flotilla sailing holiday is ideal for couples and families who have sailed in the Ionian and want a similar flotilla holiday in a different Greek location.
The Athens flotilla starts from Kalamaki marina, just 40 minutes from Athens airport. Add a few days before or after the flotilla for a city break to Athens. Once you leave the marina, it's easy sailing among the picturesque islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses with plenty of bays for lunchtime stops and traditional Greek harbours for overnight mooring.
This sailing area has ideal conditions with steady day breezes. The islands are each very different and allow a good day's sail between them. On this route there are many attractive harbours for overnight mooring.
The skipper and hostess are on hand to give you help and advice so you get the most out of your sailing holiday.
Winds force 2-3 (4-11 Knots) combined with generally shorter distances. Good for beginner or intermediate sailors. Line-of-sight navigation but basic knowledge of charts and ability to plot your position required.
Winds force 3-5 (7-21 Knots) with approximately 15-20nm per day. Intermediate experience required. Predominately line of sight navigation but an understanding of how to sail in open water.
Winds force 4-6 (11-27 Knots) with mileage of approximately 20nm+ per day. Ideal for experienced skippers looking to venture out to new destinations. Day skipper standard but with experienced crew would be recommended.
To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.
For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.
RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.
For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.
If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
