Nathalie And I Will Sail On A Lagoon 52 Catamaran

It's going to be quite an epic journey, taking 12 months if it all goes to plan. Nathalie and I will be acting as crew onboard.

Luxury Private Charter Sailing the Ionian Islands, Greece

5th to 12th September, 2020

This is a wine activity and unique holiday, all wrapped up together. Taking 7 days, we will sail the luxury catamaran 'Hydrax' around the islands of the Ionian Sea. Wine expert Nathalie Amey will be onboard and will conduct informal tastings each evening for the aperitif. There will be plenty of opportunity to go ashore and visit the local artisan winemakers that dot these islands, with Nathalie acting as wine guide.

It will be a wonderful mix of good wine, wine appreciation, authentic Greek food in out of the way tavernas and of course superb sailing on a luxury catamaran.

Sailing the Sporades in Greece - Week 2

After sailing north from Athens and reaching Skiathos, we begin another week sailing the local islands of the Sporades.  Although Skiathos is the most popular holiday destination in the area with the most famous beaches, the other three bigger islands of the Sporades Group, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros are equally beautiful and more unspoilt. Then there 24 other smaller islands to visit too! We will take the time to explore them and soak up staying in remote anchorages mixed with visits to the charming vilages and towns dotted amongst the islands. It will be another great week of sailing, socialising and exploring the islands of the Sporades.

This trip is the perfect opportunity for anyone wanting to gain some more miles and experience. If you are keen to participate, you will definitely learn and improve your sailing. I use these trips as a teaching voyage and provide as much instruction as the crew wants. Come alone, bring a friend or book the entire boat out by organising your own group.

Cost will be 500€ per person (twin share cabin) or 900€ per cabin solo occupant. The boat will be a Beneteau Oceanis 48, "Invictus" - a beautiful boat to sail and live aboard for the week. To view the full yacht details and actual boat photos, click here.
