In order to make the best of this amazing experience, check out our top tips for enjoying your sailing in Greece…
Take it easy
Respect the Greek sun
Find the best yachts
Be curiousWhen you anchor in one of the picturesque ports, get into conversation with the locals. Ask them if there is a “panigiri” (a unique combination of religious and social event) taking place on the island. If you are lucky get ready to enjoy a different kind of nightlife! Also enquire if there is a performance of ancient drama. Some islands have ancient theatres that during summer host excellent performances of ancient drama. Another experience you should not miss!
Taste the Greek food and wineAboard a charter sailing yacht you will definitely taste the best food. Nevertheless you should not miss the opportunity to taste the local food. Greek cuisine has quite a reputation. It will be a pity not to taste the original dishes. A little isolated taverna on a beach may offer you a meal that would be worth at least a Michelin star! When it comes to drinking, don’t settle only for the famous spirits like ouzo and retsina. Ask to taste tsipouro and rakomelo. Or request information on local wines made from local varieties of grapes. You will be surprised by the quality and the variety!
So, are you ready to set sail for Greece? We look forward to welcoming you!
