Sivota Route on the Ionian Flotilla

The Ionian Flotilla from Palairos is a perfect choice for couples and families with children seeking a relaxed flotilla sailing holiday in Greece with lighter winds, easy navigation and shorter sailing passages. Explore the beautiful islands of Lefkas, Meganissi, Kalamos, Ithaca and Kephalonia.

Those new to sailing or looking to brush up on their skills can take advantage of our learn to sail on flotilla option. Ask the sales team for more details.


SUNDAY DEPARTURE - 1 WEEK

Lighter winds and shorter passages make the Ionian ideal for a relaxed flotilla sailing holiday in Greece, popular with families and less experienced crews.

 

Explore these beautiful Greek islands and experience gentle afternoon breezes, warm seas and friendly harbour-front tavernas. This flotilla is ideal for couples and families with children seeking a relaxed sailing holiday.

 

The sheltered waters of the Ionian offer an unlimited number of tranquil bays and enchanting fishing harbours. Navigation is straightforward with no tides, currents or other hazards. There are good sailing breezes late morning through the afternoon, but winds rarely exceed Force 5. Anchor in picturesque bays or moor up in bustling fishing harbours.

 

We don't believe in 'regimented' flotilla sailing. You're free to plot your own course during the day. The flotilla skipper is on hand to give you advice and support - from sorting out a snarled anchor to reserving you a table for dinner on the quayside.

 

Less experienced skippers will appreciate his help with mooring "stern-to" or "bows-to" on the quayside at the end of an enjoyable afternoon's sail. And if you are an experienced sailor you can choose to leave the flotilla for a few days, joining up for the barbecue evening or other social event.

 

Those new to sailing or looking to brush up on their skills can take advantage of our learn to sail on flotilla option. Ask the sales team for more details.

SIVOTA ROUTE


Day 1 (Sunday) : Palairos Harbour

You join your flotilla in our beautifully located Palairos base, just a short drive from Preveza airport. The superb setting, with views across to Meganisi and Scorpio, the island owned by the Onassis family, will soon put you in the holiday mood! After settling in on your yacht there’s time for a stroll around the shops and a relaxing dinner.

 

Day 2 (Monday) : Sivota, Lefkas (14nm)

Enjoy a sail across to Sivota on the East coast of Lefkas. This is an unspoiled fishing village which has managed to keep its Greek character through all the years despite the growth of tourism. Here you’re spoiled for choice as there is a variety of shops, cafes and tavernas.

 

Day 3 (Tuesday) : Kioni, Ithaka (15nm)

Kioni village is an exceptional beauty set amidst a setting of olive groves. The lovely houses form an amphitheatre around the steep slopes of the bay with its amazing deep blue waters.

 

Day 4 (Wednesday) : Big Vathi, Ithaka

Big Vathi has been the main harbour of Ithaca since the 16th century. Vathi is steeped in history and wandering the small streets is a treat before you settle down for a leisurely meal and sundowner.

 

Day 5 (Thursday) : Kalamos

Enjoy a sail north to the island of Kalamos. Port Kalamos is a sleepy little harbour with a few restaurants and shops on the quayside for visiting yachts. Take a walk up to the old town for views and a visit to the bakery.

 

Day 6 (Friday) : Port Atheni, Meganisi

Port Atheni is a small harbour on the island of Meganisi and is located in the bay with the same name used mainly for fishing boats. Several hiking tracks lead over the hills and down through the olive-tree plantations to the isolated bays on the other part of the island.

 

Day 7 (Saturday) : Palairos Harbour

Stop at Abelike Bay for a last lunch stop and swim before returning to Palairos.

 

Two-Week bookings have “Free Sailing” or the option to return to the base at Palairos.

 

Day 8 (Sunday)

Disembark from Palairos and take your included transfer back to the airport.

 

Please Note: All routes may vary due to weather conditions & other factors.
