Oia – Santorini

The sea is the main link connecting the islands to the mainland plus neighbouring countries with different cultures and all of those people engaged in sailing. We are 100% certain that boating enthusiasts will enjoy it. The cultural heritage of Greece includes almost 3000 years of history, democracy and philosophy. It is always the sea that creates these bonds and makes people unleash all their virtues and creativity as the mild Mediterranean climate helps in the development of culture, letters and arts.

Of course it is no coincidence that many philosophers, writers, mathematicians and artists had a common origin in Greece.

When you breathe the fresh sea air full of iodine with a salty tang, you can understand the forces and attraction that the sea exerts on its inhabitants.

Innumerable islands, breath-taking crystal-clear waters, dreamy sunsets. What else do you need to spend an unforgettable vacation?

Skopelos Island

You can start designing your dream cruise by renting a sailboat unless you decide to bring your own boat. Whatever, the experience will be unforgettable, but you will come back again asking to continue where you were.

You can choose an anchor in one of the thousands of marinas or choose to moor into your own “private” bay to spend your night under your starlit sky.

We said it would be your earthly paradise on earth.

In the western part of the Cyclades there are seven beautiful islands that are almost in line one below the other – here we must say that where you sail with your boat, there is no risk of not to finding land in the event of bad weather, as the maximum distance between land does not exceed five nautical miles. So long as you take care along the way, sailing in sight of the nearest coast for protection and get out of the worst of the bad weather you will be safe. We are not in the middle of the Atlantic, the Mediterranean is a much more tranquil sea. You will rarely see waves so great and rarely our seas are so bad.
