Feedback from 2016

"We had 12 grandiose weeks on Sophia in Greece. Land and people were fantastic with great encounters. Sophia in good shape, the right ship for this trip. The highlights were surely: Sporades, Cyclades, south around Pelepones, Gulf of Patras, Rion Bridge, Delphi, Corinth, passage channel of corinth, Athens, Saronic Gulf, Gulf of Pelion and passage of Chalkida, Gulf of Volos (so everything).
In total 1500 nautical miles, 83 days !!
Be sure we will come back !!

Best Regards from cold Germany :-)

Andreas, Susanne"

"Dear Panos and Francesca

A quick note to thank you for a great 10 days on the water and for your hospitality.

We are just plucking up courage to attack the tsipouro that you kindly provided to ensure continuation of our sore heads!

Clare will get back to you with photographs once she has got them together.

Best wishes

Adam"

Adam and Clare and friends chartered Sophia for 10 days in September from Volos.


Feedback from 2015

We had the most amazing time on Sophia, what a beautiful yacht to sail and what a fabulous group of islands .... It was certainly a memorable and fun holiday ..... Thank you for all your help before and during our travels. 

We left for Perth on Sunday and into work on Tuesday morning ......  

We'll have a look through our pics and share on FB and your web site. 

Thanking you and Panagiotis for your hospitality and kindness 

With best wishes

Dear Francesca,

Panos asked me to send some pictures and feedback for the website. Here is our photo album, please feel free to download and use any of them.

We had a great time on Sophia, she has a noble character inspiring safety and peace. The check-in and check-out were a pleasure, since Panos is so passionate about Sophia and he carefully explained all inventory. As a skipper it was a memorable experience, never saw a charter boat with so many extra features and so organized. When Panos showed the white clean paper under the engine (which stayed white until the end) I knew we're safe on the engine side. The sails are like new and the classic shape of the boat feels wonderful while sailing, very balanced and truly easy to control. The big genoa was perfect for the wind conditions. A big thumbs up for the collection of waterproof cockpit maps and pilot book, as well as for the collection of other maps and books on board. The crew (my family and friends) felt perfect, Sophia was our home for two weeks and it was hard for my daughter to leave her behind in Volos. 

Thanks again and hope to see you soon,
Iulian

“I have meaning to contact you since our return from Volos to say what a great time we had. Sophia was perfect for us and we loved the sailing area. Lots of opportunity for anchoring in very quiet places as well as interesting small harbours. I have attached a few photos. Thanks again to both of you and hope to be able to book with you next year”

Very best wishes, Karl Kieffer”

Feedback from 2013

It was a very fine trip with Sophia from 1.6. to 8.6.2013 and we enjoyed the boat and its equipment very much. It is a real difference to experience a boat with an owner like Panos who takes such good care of the lady. Her age does not matter at all. Johannes and I were sailing and motoring up to Alonissos, the boat is easy to handle even for only two people. We had a lot of fun, but our trip was too short. Next time we stay longer.
Greetings and thanks for everything.

Katrin and Johannes from Austria

Dear Francesca,
We really enjoyed our stay and keep your offer in mind for next year.
Kind regards,
Edwin

Edwin and family (NL), 28 April - 13 May 2012

--------------------

"I thought Sophia was a great sailing boat.  The nice part about it being older and owned by yourselves is that everything is cared for quite meticulously.  The labels were especially helpful on the cabinets and drawers, something that you don't tend to find on other charters.  For two people it was extremely easy to sail, and it also sailed extremely well.  And the biggest small positive, just to mention, was the length of the anchor chain...you need it and you don't find a lot of boats with what it should be!

Overall my wife and I would rate the experience very high, we completely relaxed and Sophia was like home in days.. and that's even though the weather had to be the worst for Greece around that time for ages.  I've had great experiences with Odyssey as you know.  I would definitely come back through, at which time I hope we finally meet!  You guys are very kind and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I hope all is well with the season underway.
Many thanks and Warm Regards
Ryan Sbarra"

Dear Francesca,
Once more, we were very pleased of our trip with Sofia. As you asked, you will find some photos of our life on board of Sophia. Reading has occupied a great part of the time, but is not represented! We have also nice photos of see or landscape, but you already know them...

With kind regards,

Feedback from 2011

All tick boxes: reception, yacht, inventory, itinerary, skipper - excellent.

"I personally do not that much experience on yachts but I can honestly say that the yacht provided for all my needs during sailing.

Your services from initiating the discussion  and setting the yacht renting details to actually sailing with us, were excellent, informative, quick to answer/service and helpful when needed. Even if I personally did not enjoy sailing due to bad weather and nausea, I will be glad to come back and give it one more try knowing, that my needs will be meet in timely manner, with organization and care for me and my friends."

“Dear Francesca and Panagiotis, We wish to thank you very much for our wonderful sailing on your Sun Odyssey 33 Sophia. We felt the special home atmosphere thanks to so detailed equipment. All the signs and marks on the boat makes easy to find anything we needed.

And the remarks on the check in were very helpful not only for sailing time :-). Many thanks for the first night in restaurant, all those small "snacks" were wonderful and we wanted to repeat on departure. Hope there will be next chance to spend such nice time with Greek wine. We had a very nice trip, only the first planed stop on Trikeri Island we had to change for Agia Kiriaki as the Sunsail flotilla blocked all the place. But it was also good as we were only one boat on this first stop. We had some nice sailing, and the ports were empty, the beaches were completely less of people and the islands were so picturesque. It left many places for the next time. Sorry that we had to stop earlier due to the weather but good to know that bad weather was not so long and later came sun again…

I am sending you some of our pictures. On 2 cameras we made about 2000 photos together :-).

Again many thanks for you hospitality and the best regards, Joanna & Andrzej

PS. Already some of our clients are asking for my report. I will advice when the articles will be printed.”

Letters of the year 2010!

Panagiotis and Francesca,

As promised you receive a selection of the over 400 pictures we shot during our fantastic holidays with Sophia in the region of the Northern Sporades. Without your involvement, good suggestions, and warm personalities these holidays wouldn't have been so successful as they were.

Thank you for instance so much for suggesting boarding in Volos instead of Skiathos. The 4 days of our trip to and from the Sporades in the bay of Volos were at least as interesting as the rest of our stay amongst the islands. The bay is full of pleasant surprises and your permanent berth on the quay of Volos gave us all the services we needed for a pleasant start and ending of our holidays.

Sophia is really a fully equipped bareboat that made us become completely conversant with her from the first minute on we sailed from Volos. All the material is well maintained and that gave us a lot of confidence in sailing the Aegean Sea (these credits belong presumably the most to Panagiotis, don’t they? ; - )\

Your unexpected invitation for Panagiotis’ names day was a perfect finish of a two weeks pleasant stay in the beautiful sailing area of Volos Bay and the Northern Sporades.

Good luck to you and your family and lots of success with Odyssey Sailing; the money we spent on this experience was worth every penny of it and we’ll never forget your contribution in making it an unforgettable one!

 Kind regards,

Mariska and Marco, Aug’10 (from the Netherlands)

Αγαπητέ Παναγιώτη & αγαπητή Φραντζέσκα,
Οι 6 μέρες εν πλω τον Αύγουστο του 2010 στις Βόρειες Σποράδες και στον Παγασητικό κόλπο θα μας μείνουν αξέχαστες. Η «γλυκιά Σοφία» και η άψογη συνεργασία μαζί σας μας έχουν αφήσει τις καλύτερες αναμνήσεις.
Όσον αφορά το ταξίδι μας, αν και πρωτάρηδες, ακολουθήσαμε πιστά τις πορείες που είχαμε προγραμματίσει και γυρίσαμε ένα μεγάλο μέρος τη περιοχής (Αγία Κυριακή - Στενή Βάλα – Περιστέρα / Σκάτζουρα - γύρος Σκοπέλου - γύρος Σκιάθου / Χοντρή Άμμος – Τρίκερι / Βόλος). Συνολικά διανύσαμε 180 ν.μ.
Η πρόταση του Παναγιώτη για διανυκτέρευση στη Χοντρή Άμμο, και η απρόσμενη συνάντηση ενός κοπαδιού δελφινιών έξω από την Αγία Κυριακή ήταν οι πιο ξεχωριστές στιγμές του ταξιδιού.
Σας αξίζουν πολλά συγχαρητήρια για την άψογη συντήρηση του σκάφους καθώς και για τον πλούσιο εξοπλισμό του. Παίζοντας λίγο με τις λέξεις, μπορούμε να πούμε ότι η «Σοφία» κρατιέται πάντα νέα, χάρη στο δικό σας μεράκι!
Ευχόμαστε καλή συνέχεια και ευχαριστούμε ξανά για τις υπέροχες διακοπές που μας προσφέρατε!
Φιλικά,
Νίκος (ή Ξάρτης), Διονύσης (ή Ρέλιας), Σταμάτης (ή Χαβούζας), Νίκος (ή Κοτσανέλος), Θέμις (ή Πανιόλος), Πέτρος (ή Σεντίνας)*

Roughly translated:

Dear Panagioti and dear Francesca,

The 6 days sailing in August 2010 in the North Sporades and the Pagasitic Gulf will remain unforgettable. The 'sweet Sophia' and the excellent cooperation with you have left us with the best memories.

As regards out trip, our first sailing trip so to speak, we faithfully followed the course we had plotted and covered a large part of the area (Agia Kiriaki - Steni Valla - Peristera / Skantzoura - around Skopelos - Hondri Ammos - Trikeri / Volos). Altogether we covered 180 nautical miles.

Panagiotis' suggestion to spend the night at Hondri Ammo and the unexpected yet welcome meeting with a school of dolphins off the coast of Agia Kyriaki were the most special moments of the trip.

You deserve many congratulations for the excellent maintanence of the yacht as well as for her rich inventory. Playing slightly with the words, we could say that 'Sophia' will always be young, thanks to your efforts.

We wish you every future success and thank you again for the wonderful holidays which you gave us.

With friendly regards,

Nikos (the Mast), Dionissis (the Rail), Stamatis (the Water Basin?), Nikos (the Winch), Themis (the...) and Petros (the Sheet)*

We were very happy with the boat and all the arrangements, many thanks.
We'd be more than happy to act as a referee.
I'm still waiting for Dan to download the photos, if we have any good one's

It's certainly a lovely sailing area.

Sophia, July 2008

Hi Francesca,

I am still in Greece but the rest of the crew has left. We had a great time with the boat which was in excellent shape. Everything was working right. I did fill out the form, but it got partially wet and maybe that's why Panos did not give it to you. My brother-in-law has some pictures up from our whole trip on the web.

Best,
Stergios

Hi Francesca and Panagiotis,

As promised here are a few pictures taken from our time spent on Sophia. We are now back into the swing of things in New Zealand dreaming of our next sailing holiday with Odyssey. We had the best time onboard Sophia and could not have has a better boat to enjoy our first days of married life together. 14 days of pure enjoyment.

We were so impressed with the service from you guys and the condition and equipment onboard Sophia. Think the outboard was in need of a little service but I managed to keep her humming throughout the 14 days. In regards to the weather throughout the trip, it was great. Relaxed motoring in the morning with a good breeze in the afternoon to keep the keel in business. In fact on the second last day we recorded 28kts of wind which was just perfect! Amazing Island group, Fantastic people and downright awe smacking food! WE LOVE GREECE!!!!

We are thinking of the Ionian island group next.......

Regards,

Alex & Lisa

Feedback from 2007

Everything was excellent! We had a very enjoyable time with no hassle! Sophia was perfect for the 6 of us.”

Hi Fransesca/Panos,
A word of thanks again for your friendliness and a boat in good condition that allowed us a hassle free holiday. The hole team thoroughly enjoyed the excursion.
I'm still feel sorry about the damage to the sails and trust that they could be repaired. We were trapped by an unexpected southerly wind on the windward side of Panayia. Registered 42.5 knots (max) on the wind meter and with only a little bit of sail out the damage happened in an instance...
Under those conditions I was extremely thank full that Sophia was in good condition and we could safely seek shelter in Planitis for a second night.
Sophia and all the memories will be with us as long as we can remember. I trust that the rest of the season will be a good one from you.
Regards
Thinus H., South Africa, charter dates 19 May - 02 June 2007

Francesca/Panos,
Just a note to say thank you very much for a great Charter. I think we enjoyed it this time even more and were very comfortable with Sophia and got to some previously unexplored territory.
I attach some photos for you which look good. On another good front I think I may have got you a charter from French couple we met at the airport who will contact you. Rest assured only good memories and we'll be back.
All the best and good sailing.

We had a really good time with your boat.
I think it is a very good boat and very cozy. Everything you need you can find it inside the boat.

Thank you for your offer, I hope we will have the time to travel with sophia again during the summer.
Best regards to Panagiotis and you,"

Hello Panagiotis,
Thanks again for letting us hire the Sophia. We loved your boat. Because she is a private boat she has a lot of extras above a normal charter boat. As we promissed we send you some photos we took of the Sophia. We hope you like them and are wondering if you recognize the places we took the photos. (See pictures here).

Further suggestions: "It would be great to include a safety at sea briefing prior to departure. We were not sure if there were flares on board for example. Also a fire-blanket near the galley could be a useful addition. If there is one - we couldn't find it."

John W (Kavas Yachting) May'02

"….we immediately had a very good feeling for Sophia. It had been thoroughly cleaned, particularly well equipped, perfectly organised with instructions for each equipment and instrument. It soon became clear that we were on a boat cared for and maintained impeccably by her owner. I am convinced that few bare boats rival Sophia in terms of being well equipped and maintained. My heartiest congratulations to Panagiotis for maintaining in perfect condition a 10 year old boat used 20 weeks each year by different crews, every clew, every hinge, every latch, every everything was in reliable working order. Panagiotis returned and gave us a neatly prepared folder with the Port Authorities documents, answered my questions, and patiently gave us instructions on the specific aspects of Sophia, her electrics, fluid circuits and mechanics. It was really remarkable. I truly do not see what else could have wanted on board!"
