Ionian islands

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. If you are a foodie, this is a great part of Greece, with each island having their own local delicacies to try.
