Good to meet you in person this week and thanks for organising such a good charter. Please also pass on our thanks to Joanna and Demetrios (I hope I have his name correct). - a very well presented yacht and all very friendly and efficient.

I have just returned from a great bareboat charter holiday in the Sporiades organised through Francesca at Odyssey Sailing. I would definitely use this company again and have no doubts about recommending them wholeheartedly to anyone chartering in this area; or anywhere else that they cover.
During the booking process, Francesca always answered promptly with reliable information and a thorough understanding of any technical or local issues. I felt in very safe hands for all aspects of the booking.James
Odyssey Sailing organised a Bavaria Cruiser 46 from Joanna and her team / family. I have been chartering in the med for many years now, including this model of Bavaria on several occasions. This yacht (s/y NOTUS) was in immaculate condition, especially taking into account that it is a 2007 yacht. Joanna gave the best briefing and handover I have had from any charterer. It was also well priced.
A 5 star performance from Odyssey and from Joanna and the NOTUS team.
Many thanks to you all.
Mr Scruby and friends chartered s/y Notus, Bavaria 46 Cruiser from Volos in July
Back home safely I`d like to thank you very much for your hospitality, for your time and attention paid to our trip !
The memories of our yourney will be reverberating further on for weeks and months...
Let`s hope, another trip will be in the cards for September !
With best regards and hugs for you, Francesca, for Panagiotis and all the family,
Marek and friends sailed s/y Clio, Oceanis 381 from Volos in May
I would do this again next year!
Mrs Williams chartered a Beneteau Oceanis 48 from Lefkas in September
Yes, we had a great time during our sailing vacation. Everything was o.k., no problems at all.
Taking the boat and giving back was perfect thanks to Dimitris, so we were very much satisfied.
Thanks a lot for your support and for the flexible changing of the initial boat with a bigger one!
We are definitely thinking of repeating this Sporades experience, so I will contact you again in the future.
Mr Matev chartered s/y Anax, Sun Odyssey 49, from Volos in June.
Hi Francesca, just a quick e mail to let you know we had an absolutely brilliant holiday on Footprints, everything was well organised and the skipper was fantastic. We covered a lot of islands given the fact that we only went for a week. We are going to plan another holiday visiting the other holidays in 2020. Thanks for all your help, it’s much appreciated.
Keep well and we’ll be in touch next year.
Yes, we are back and all the richer for the experience of last week.
Thanks again, and yes, we will be back, sure!
Elias chartered s/y Poseidonia, a Bavaria 40 cruiser from Athens in June, with skipper.
Thanks Francesca-We did indeed enjoy our sailing. Next year we wish to return and charter a monohull in the 36-40ft range. Please let us know what deals you have to secure an early rental
Peter chartered s/y Enjoy, Lagoon 421 catamaran, in June, from Lefkas.
Paolo and friends chartered a Bavaria 49 from Skiathos in June.
Victoria and friends chartered s/y Bibendium, Lagoon 450 catamaran from Lavrion in June.
It went quite well and objectives were well achieved. My learning spiked significantly and I got the Day Skipper Licence which was great.
I`ll definitely be getting in touch for my next foray in the region.
Daniel did a mile builder and RYA Day Skipper course from Poros in June.
We are sailing around on Cassopea and having a great time. Boat is in terrific shape (nearly new) and things are going well so far.

In short, our sailing holiday was fantastic. Working with you to secure the boat and the extras we wanted was very easy, and you were helpful at each step of the way. This was especially important to us on this trip since it was our first time chartering in Europe.
We can’t say enough good things about the boat, which was in fabulous shape, or the base managers, and Constantin, who were extremely helpful. As partners in a Caribbean charter business with very high standards we were very impressed at the operation Constantin and his team run. The boat was very well outfitted and well prepared for charter guests.
Our only complaint is that being spoiled Americans :-) we would have liked a generator and AC on the boat, especially given the heat.
Many thanks for your help,
Phillip and family chartered s/y Cassopea, Lucia 40 catamaran from Athens in August.
Shirley`s partner Alan and his friends joined the Ionian flotilla from Lefkas and chartered a Bavaria 37 cruiser.
Xavier and friends chartered s/y Orestis, Bavaria 47 cruiser, from Rhodes in August, with skipper.
Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your whole team for a great week. Particularly Constantine who always available to assist when needed. We look forwards to seeing you again either next season of the season after.
Sibylle and friends chartered s/y Arethousa, Bavaria 45 cruiser, from Athens in August.
