Greece 2018

Greece 2018

8-day-trip

28. April - 5. May 2018

Cyclades...

Crew swimming

History, nature, relaxing. The Cyclades (cyclos = circle) in fact circle the island of Delos as their centre. In antique times Delos was a flourishing and holy place due to the Apollon sanctuary.

From far away the Cyclades look rocky, dry and rough. Once you get closer you will notice the many small white houses, the churches with their blue domes, and the green squares of the villages as well as the coves and many small beaches, some of them with a Bar or Restaurant, the others remote.

We will be sailing on one or more large monohull yachts around 50 feet in length. They are fully equipped with double cabins, toilets, showers and a kitchen.

Our yachts

Where are we going?

For 8 days we will be sailing a monohull yacht starting from the Athens area. There are as many options as there are islands. Wind directions and strengths vary, and above all each crew has different wishes and skills. Therefore, sailing on a fixed route is basically impossible. Nonetheless, we provide two possible routes in the chart below.

Half of the nights we will stay in ports or marinas and the rest we will stay at anchor in bays to start the next morning with a swim from our swimming platform.

Almost every day we'll sail to a new island. Distances vary so we'll have shorter and longer sailing days.

 

The following route is a suggestion that we will adapt depending upon the wind+weather situation. Cabin charter yachts will usually follow this route. Bareboat charters are free to define their own routes.

  1. day: Boarding around noon, provisioning, potential first sail to the temple of Poseidon or alternatively overnight in the marina.
  2. day: Sail to the island of Kea into the well-protected bay of Vourkari for anchoring.
  3. day: An early start for a long sail to Tinos. At our destination one of the best and affordable restaurants has a table reserved for us.
  4. day: Tinos' orthodox pilgrimage church "Panagia Evangelistria" above the main town is worth a visit. The devout orthodox make the way from the port to the church on their knees! In the afternoon we'll sail to Mykonos, in time for the famous night live of the main town.
  5. day: Turn-around-day. We are on our way back but there is still much to see!  Todays capital of the Cyclades is Ermoupolis on Syros. On the steep slopes abovge the port a million of houses is stuck together and is waiting to be discovered by foot or by motorscooter. Ermoupolis is a "real" Greek town with less tourists. - Watch the Greeks in the Cafes :-)
  6. day: Two of the most beautiful and safest anchorages are located on Kythnos and are only separated by a 5m-wide beach. The view in spectacular and the clear waters and beaches are inviting for a swim. A natural hot spring on one of the beaches is there, too.
  7. day: A last sailing day leads us back to where we started.
  8. day: Good bye day: Departure during the early morning.

Good to know ...

Our trip will start in one of the marinas close to Athens. You should arrive there on the boarding day not later that noon. To take it even more relaxed arrive the night before.

The airport code of Athens International Airport is "ATH". ATH is served from major European cities by direct flights.

All other expenses for the ship and aboard are shared in equal parts through a so called common "cruising kitty".
Please keep in mind that you will be covering the cruising kitty's share of our skipper as well!

Our experience is that you will need around 25 Euro/day/person which will be covering:

  • Harbour fees
  • Immigration and fees for cruising permits, customs, immigration, marine parks
  • additional insurances
  • Navigation material
  • Fuel
  • Food aboard
  • Drinks aboard
  • Others


ALL OTHER EXPENSES
All other expenses ashore as personal expenses related to travel, dinner in restaurants, going out are covered by each participant separately.

 

Our approach is: Less is more! - You usually need far less than you pack.

 
Please do not bring hard cased bags or suitcases as there is little stowage room aboard. Duffel bags or any other type of soft bags are most convenient.
 
As we are sailing in spring daytime is quite warm (swimming-gear!) and evenings/nights/windy times will cool down quite a bit (warm clothes).
 
You need some good sailing gear? – Ask us!
 

High probability for a constantly sunny and windy weather:

  • Winds from westerly and northerly directions, 3-5 Bft.
  • Sun
  • Sun
  • Sun
  • Air temperature 18°-25°C

The small print

A cancellation fee is withheld from the total trip price in case of your cancellation:

  • 0-30 days after booking and more than 90 days before departure: 10% fee of the total price is withheld by Pansails
  • more than 30 days after booking and more than 90 days before departure: 50% of the total price 
  • 30-90 days before the departure date: 80% of the total price 
  • less than 30 days before the departure date: 100% of the total price

Furthermore our General T&C (AGB) are applicable which we will provide to you upon request.

We strongly recommend to procure a travel cancellation as well as a respective health insurance valid in the destination countries.

The boat is covered by a security deposit+insurance and the security deposit is covered by a special insurance. So the maximum liability for the boat (except grossly negligent and some exclusions as specified in the insurance details) is below 100€ per participant.

Furthermore our General T&C (AGB) are applicable which we will provide to you upon request.
