Thank you !!!
Some pictures from our cruise: in Kyra Panayia at sunrise; a 'drinking monster' glimpsed at the northern tip of Alonissos, and a quay in Skopelos.

We had a very wandful trip in Greece.I just got back yesterday night and still adjust...
the sailing is a unforgaveable (sic) experience to all of us, the kids had a lot of fun during the sailing and parents adjusted them as well from the second day, they have fun too!
Our captain Mr. Papasarnd and hosstess Dena are very very kind,they like the kids and the kids like them very much!
Your arrangement is excellent! I'll came to you web site to gave you a lot of good words soon as i get revived.
I;ll seng some of our picture in Greece later.
Greece is very very beautiful,I hope i can organize another group to visit her again in some day later.
Mr Yu and family chartered s/y Christianna VIII, Ocean Star 60, from Athens, with skipper and hostess.
You can see Mr Yu's holiday photographs here.
They were an amazing group! I spent some time with them on Sunday at their hotel before the cruise and they were very happy, positive and easy-going people. Similarly, Antonis called me the first day of the cruise and said they were the best group he's had until now!
They enjoyed all the bays and places they visited (despite the fact that they got stuck a second night in Ithaca because of the strong winds last Wednesday) and had a great time on Saturday when they celebrated their anniversary. Swimming was a bit difficult for Edward but Antonis was taking him to the beach every day with the dinghy. Also they would have liked a wider passarela, but Antonis explained that Velos' hydraulic passarela is the widest and sturdiest they would find on a sailing yacht. They also left a big tip for which Antonis and Darina are very grateful :)
Mr and Mrs Broadbridge celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with family on board s/y Velos,Ocean Star 56 with skipper and hostess in September in the Ionian islands.
Mr Carsterlein from Belgium chartered s/y Anax, Sun Odyssey 49, from Volos in May.
I write you from Ithaka where we are all enjoying our hollidays on Siesta.
So far everything is going smooth, the boat is almost as good as new, your personnel was extremely nice and helpful etc. Amazing!
As you know our flight back home is on Sunday, July 16th. So we would be very happy if we could spend extra night on Siesta if it is free. Please let us know if the boat is free from Saturday to Sunday.
Jernej and friends chartered s/y Siesta, Bavaria 34 cruiser from Corfu in June.

Hope we will be it touch again.
Erhard chartered s/y Apollonis, Hanse 540 from Kos to Lavrion in September.
Dear Francesca, -
"Sailing is the passionat of my life" and "Yacht - Cruising - International" the name of my organisation,-
we run more than 25 Years in 10 different countries.
Greece we like most - the reason we come back to the
Aegean for lifetime.
With Charter 17007 and your service we were very satisfied -
as always the years bevore.
The Yacht "EVA" S.O.512 was in very good conditions and
with Mr.Antonis Zannos we had a good co-operation.
If we decide next for an other, later, yacht - selection in
Greece, I promise, - we first ask Francesca from
Odyssey Sailing !
Thank you very much for the very good agreements, -
YCI - Erwino

Mr Blair chartered s/y Anax, Sun Odyssey 49, from Skiathos to Volos in June.
Lieven and family chartered s/y Poseidonia, Bavaria 40 cruiser, from Athens in September.
Good Morning Francesca,
We would like to thank you for your service. Everything was perfect and we enjoyed every minute. Our skipper Stelios was the best choice, we have only positive things to say about him!
We will highly recommend you and for sure we will come back in the future!
Thank you once again for everything!
Eliza and friends chartered s/y Mighty George, Jeanneau 53 from Skiathos in July, with skipper Stelios.
Mr Mundt from Germany chartered s/y Pelagia, Sun Odyssey 419 from Volos.
Our sailing trip was wonderful, as were Apostolos and Laura. The food was of exceptionally high standard, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time away. Apostolos was an amazing skipper/captain, really looking after all our requirements from a weather perspective, to some amazing drop off points. We experienced some great Tavernas and visited some fantastic onshore places.
We are already discussing our next cruise! (But will sail for longer next time)!
I will send through some photos for the website, once I have downloaded them.
Cheers from one very happy customer
Maria chartered s/y Athos, Nautitech 47 with skipper and hostess in the Ionian islands in September.
sorry first for the late reaction, but unfortunately I have been very busy since I got back in office.
Anyway, writing about our vacation....yes everything was wonderful....wather, islands, boaths and welcome...
Thanks for all.
The owner (send my regards to Dimitri) has given a very beautiful, functional and complete boat (solar cells ...great idea)...the other charter was ok as well even if we found them "extremely precise" if you know what I mean.
Anyway also that sailing boat was almost perfect.
So, what I can say.....time passed too soon
Thanks for the eventual discount you would give us for the future imbarcation. Appreciate
Keep in touch
Paolo and friends chartered 2 boats from Skiathos, Sun Odyssey 43 and Bavaria 46 cruiser.
Daniel and family chartered s/y Anastasia with skipper Patrik in the Cyclades in August.
Just writing to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. It was amazing!!
George (our skipper) and Frugalis (our host) were so wonderful, knowledgeable, entertaining and we just love them both.
Thank YOU for helping me put together this trip of a lifetime. If you would like me to write a formal review for your website or anything, please let me know.
Thank you again for everything!
We have already recommended your company to our friends.
Jack and Kirsten chartered s/y Poseidon, Lagoon 440 from Corfu in August.
Alexander and friends chartered s/y Giorgino, Sun Odyssey 49 from Lavrion in May.
I want to thank you one more time for our last sailing vacation. You are the one to blame for most of the fun we had. See below why.
I am very impressed with this particular boat. She was in perfect condition. No single thing which needs to be replaced or fixed any soon.
Plenty of equipment. New bimini which didn't leak during rains - something that often happens with chartered boats, plenty of fenders - 11 instead of usual 8-9 etc etc etc. I have seen much newer new boats in worst condition. I know the season is just starting and boats are usually in better condition in May than in September, but in this case it was exceptional. A brief look at the decks of the other boats convinced me they care about all their boats the same way. So thanks again for the great choice of a charter company and boat.
The only thing I wasn't happy about is that we got too small foresail and it didn't have tale tales. I can perfectly understand why they did it though. Most of their customers are tourists, not sailors as they described them. Regarding the lack tale tales for example they said I'm the second skipper in three years who mentions it. They were obviously sceptical about our crew at the day one, but a the last day we managed to impress them.
We did set some records this time. Despite that most of the time there were very low winds we somehow managed to travel about 230nm and we used only 29 litres of diesel. Our previous lowest was 40 litres in Volos in May 2015. Such unusual low fuel consumptions suggests the engine is in perfect condition and the hull is clean enough so again kudos to the basestaff.
Another record is that nobody jumped in the sea. That never happened before. It was my colder ever sailing week in Greece and it felt more like February or November not May. Same is true for my home time - Sofia.
We are already thinking about next sailing week. Most probably it will be first or last week of September. If our jobs permit maybe both :) Within next couple of weeks we will decide where to go. You are the first who will hear about it.
