Set sail from Rhodes and and explore the wonderful islands of Kos, Kalymnos and Symi amongst others before sailing into Kos at the end of your first week.

Nysiros Symi
A voyage of discovery
There is nothing better after a day of great sailing than to relax in the spacious cockpit and enjoy a sun-downer with your fellow sailors, before exploring each new island. We try to arrive into harbour in the afternoon as the towns and villages we visit are well worth exploring, with each having their own character and specialities.

Mon Tilos (30 nm) - This small island is certainly ‘off the beaten track Greece’. Its main claim to fame is as an internationally protected bird sanctuary.
Tue Symi Town (25 nm) - The stunning harbour of Symi is a great place to sail into. The amphitheatrical town cascades down the hill sides and retains it's traditional character and charm having been much renovated over recent years. The secret is to arrive in mid-afternoon after the day tripper boats from Rhodes have gone. Dine ashore in one of the many traditional restaurants. Swimming and lunch stop en route.
