Sailing Dodecanese

Kos constitutes a starting point for sailing on Dodecanese islands in Greece, for example on east Greek islands like Rhodes, Symi, Kos, Leros, Samos, Patmos, Kalymnos and other islands. It’s an ideal spot for beginners and advanced sailors. The Meltemi provides nice sailing winds, strong winds occur very seldom in summer. Many Greek islands offer quiet mooring places with many opportunities to go for nice walks. Visiting superb turkish ports and bays is possible on demand as well. You will sail on Gib Sea 472 (might change) with a skipper and a maximum of 8 other passengers, who will stay in double cabins. Single requests for sailing tours around the Dodecanese are also conceivable since a lot of people prefer sailing alone. You can decide for how long you want to sail: one or two weeks are the two alternatives, but it’s possible to prolong your holidays with a stay on Kos. Knowledge in sailing is not necessary. The skipper will introduce you to the most important movements in sailing, teach you essential knots and tell about the particularities of the boat. We promise you will get better with practice! Soon, you will be able to take the rudder alone and sail with the only help of a map and a compass. Teamwork is a key element in sailing for the journey to be as agreeable as possible. We haven’t forget about nice breaks for swimming, playing games, reading a book or just enjoying the sun or wind.
Route
The first tour (C) goes from Athens to Kos via Naxos. The last tour (D) is the exact same, except the other way round. All the details about the route cannot be usually determined from the beginning on because the weather and winds are not predictable. Trying to reach a destination in the middle of a storm is like trying to convince your kids at 7 in the morning in the winter that school is cool: It’s pointless and will get you nowhere. For this reason, the route will be discussed every morning with the skipper before leaving, and be adapted to the weather conditions if necessary. You will spend the nights in quiet bays or in ports near the coast.
Yacht & skipper
The yacht for sailing trips in the Dodecanese is a Gib Sea 472, a modern sailing yacht with 5 double cabins. All skippers speak English, have long experience in sailing and know the area by heart. They are usually sailing during the whole season, and can show you the most beautiful places, isolated bays and lively port cities of many islands. The cabins will be divided on-site. The skipper will of course consider the wishes of the guests and do his best to fulfill them. Please pay attention that the boats are not cruise ships, but smaller, sport yachts. The bed linen, tableware etc. are available on board. The sailing tours on Dodecanese begin in Kos. The port is more or less 25 km away from the airport.
Catering
Another nice experience in sailing journeys is cooking all together. You might discover the hidden talents of other passengers, who knows? You can eat at restaurants in the cities for a change, as well. A cash box is on board, to which everybody has to contribute. From this cash box, the fuel and port taxes will be paid. The skipper must not contribute to the cash box.
Kos – a starting point
There are direct flights to Kos from most of the big airports in Europe. We can book you ticket according to the dates and airport that you prefer, but you can of course choose to book your plane tickets yourself as well. The trip can also be prolonged with a stay on an island of your choice. On the day of your arrival, you will be able to board the ship from 17.00 o’clock on. If you happen to arrive earlier than expected, you can leave your luggage on board and go for a walk. From Kos on, you can either sail towards the South (tour A), or the North (tour B) of the Dodecanese. This area is remarkable for its diversity of activities, landscapes, cultures and people. In the summer, the climate can be rather arid, but the sea breeze will make your stay in this region very pleasant.
