Sailing Cyclades

The bright white houses, chapels and churches contrasting with the deep blue sea and incessantly bright sky might seem to you what Greece looks like on postcards. But this really is how the Cyclades look. In former days, this part of Greece was a favourite destination among backpackers. Amongst more than 200 islands, only a few of them are known by the tourists; but there also exist untouched islands and small bays which can be reached only with a boat. The warmth of the inhabitants and the atmosphere in taverns in the small ports have always made a great impression on their visitors.

The sailing area: The landscape of the Cyclades is rich in contrast. Additional to very barren islands like Mykonos, Kea, Antiparos, Folegandros or Delos are surprisingly green and fertile regions like on the islands of Naxos, Paros or Amorgos. The whole island is blooming in spring, turns green as an attempt to escape from the cold rest of Europe. The best temperature for swimming is in May, but as early as in March and April is sunbathing possible, and greatly enjoyable.
The islands are rather close to each other, which gives you the opportunity to choose between many variations for a sailing trip. Sometimes, you have to accept that the wind decides where you’re going to sail to next. However, the main wind direction (northeast) plays a big role, so trying to gain the east is sometimes one big of a challenge. There are however more possibilities than we think. The Cyclades are a very windy area, but the strength of the winds in the last years were rather average. Plus, you will get to know our yachts, and see how confident they sail.
Naxos can constitute either the beginning or the end of many tours. The sand beaches are stretching for miles and hiking in the depth of the island with its typical, small mountain villages are really worth of seeing.
Naxos is easy to reach from Piraeus or Rafina with a ferry, or by plane from Athens. However, pay attention that the schedule of your flight should adjust to the ferry or flight schedule in Greece. We can book ourselves an hotel for your stay on the island.

The sailing journey on Cyclades

On the day of your arrival, you can board the yacht from 17.00 o’clock on. If you happen to arrive earlier, you have the opportunity to get your luggage on board, have a nice walk around, or go shopping for a bit on the shore. On your last day on board, you will have to leave the yacht before 10.00 o’clock.
You will first get to know the skipper and the other passengers once you’re on board. You will discuss the route of your trip, listen to a briefing from the skipper about the yacht, create the on-board cash box, and make a grocery shopping list.

The cash box will be used to pay the groceries, the fuel, the port taxes etc. The skipper is not paid by the passengers and must not contribute to the cash box. Your meals at the restaurants cannot be paid from the cash box. The first grocery shopping will be on the day of your arrival, or in the morning, on the following day. The passengers should take care of the cooking, cleaning and shopping themselves.

You will spend the nights in the different ports, or anchored in the bays. Wind and weather also contribute to changing the route of the cruise. Therefore, the described routes in our brochure are not definite. The crew together with skipper can decide to change the route of the cruise depending on weather and other circumstances.

As a travel agency we arrange your trip after checking the availability of tickets and places and comparing prices with travel agencies like Arkadia or others:
