Sailing in Greece

The Greek islands make up 20% of the total area of Greece, creating a coastline of more than 15000 kilometres - an ideal and phenomenal yachting area.

The climate along this coastline is Mediterranean: mild moist winters and dry hot summers.

The long charter season starts as early as March when air temperatures rise above the seawater temperatures, which has a stabilizing effect. Around mid-May the Azores High gradually becomes more dominant and the Euro-Asian High loses its influence, resulting in very stable weather. 

July and August peak in high temperatures and sun hours - the high season for chartering! In October and November the Azores High becomes less dominant and frontal systems - followed by cool air masses - start entering the East Mediterranean from the north. The contact with the relative warmer seawater will subsequently lead to an unstable atmosphere and showers. Nevertheless, sailing until end of October can still be lovely.


Our bases

Our focus is on the Ionian sea, which we service out of our main base in Corfu. Bookings are also possible from our satellite base in Preveza and we also offer selective yachts in Athens.

Having said, depending on how long you intend to charter a yacht, you can reach other other sailing areas in Greece.
