Sailing Routes in Junes & July: Cyclades Islands

Sailing Routes in August: Saronic Islands

In both cases, departures are from Marina Kalamaki (Athens)

The Cyclades Islands, part of the Greek archipelago with more than 200 islands, located in the Aegean Sea are famous for their typical architecture of white little houses with wood doors and shutter painted in a vivid blue. The Cyclades Islands are made of genuine fishermen villages with typical taverns where you can taste and enjoy the greek gastronomy, walking around the narrow alleyways, historical monuments, enjoying the dreamlike landscapes and paradise sandy coves as well as swimming in a turquoise crystal clear water. In a nutshell, it’s all about living the relaxing beauty and genuine charm of the Mediterranean.

We will experience the quietness of Kea, the Mykonos party scene, the Milos spectacular beaches, the Santorini volcanic rocks and many more secret and surprising spots during our trip.

The Saronic Islands are located in the Saronic Gulf between the Attica and Peloponnese Provinces. Among the beautiful archipelago, we will discover Aegyna, Poros, Hydra, the lost and inhabited Dokos and Spetses. The Saronic Islands are also famous for their small and genuine fishermen’s ports, their splendid and quiet sandy coves as well as historical and antic sites. Being so close to the coast, we will be able to visit mythical ports like Ermioni in the Peloponnese.

Life on board

What to pack

It is advised not to pack too many luggage, and if possible, a non-rigid suitcase. The most ideal would be a medium sized sports bag.

      • Shoes with white soles to walk on deck, and flipflops
      • Light waterproof jacket
      • Bathing suits, towel and multiple shirts
      • Sunscreen, sun caps and sunglasses
      • Toiletries
      • Casual clothing, one or two changes

The life on board

It is very important to maintain order on board, inside (personal items in common areas), on deck (cremes, towels, cameras, etc) and while sailing, to avoid accidents or items going overboard.

      • Try to save drinking water, the tanks are limited and it is preferable to moderate consumption (in the showers) than to have to go refill
      • To use the toilet, specific instructions have to be followed, and paper or any other thing must not be flushed, to avoid clogs.
      • As for the electric consumption; don’t leave any lights on, and charge phones during the day.
      • Try to avoid going on board with shoes from the street, therefore highly recommended to use a light shoe with white soles to avoid bashing your feet onto anything.
      • Eliminate sand from your feet and towels before going in after coming back from the beach.
      • Never enter while being wet, to avoid slips and accidents.
      • Use cremes (such as sunscreen) on top of a towel to avoid the deck from becoming slippery.
