Kefalonia to Corinth Delivery Flotilla
2 weeks for the price of 1 Explorer Delivery Flotilla: 17 - 31 October 2021
This is a one-way delivery route to sail the flotilla fleet from the Ionian towards its winter location. The route takes in the Ionian islands of Ithaka and Kefalonia before heading to the historical town of Missolonghi on the mainland. We then head to the city of Patras on the Peloponnese before passing under the famous Rio bridge and into the Gulf of Corinth, full of hidden gems.
In the Gulf of Corinth, you’ll have the opportunity to take in the ancient site of Delphi and we’ll visit the stunning town of Galixidi. Our last night will be on the uninhabited Alkyonides Islands before heading back to Corinth to share stories of adventures.

Mid October in Greece does see some changeable weather, regardless of where we are sailing, so some lightweight waterproofs is a good idea. More benign conditions will be found at the start of the trip, ideal to get to grips with your yacht, with wind strengths of F3-5 during the first couple of days.
Once we get into the Gulf of Patras and Corinth, expect some freshening breezes, with F4-6 not uncommon.
Temperatures in the day should be “T-Shirt” weather, but the evenings will be cooler, so take a fleece so you can still enjoy al-fresco dining.
