What is a flotilla?
Flotillas are the sociable way to sail. You have the freedom of skippering your own yacht during the day but with the support of a British lead crew with an experienced skipper and hostess, providing weather forecasts, guiding you on the best itinerary, helping you to moor up in the evenings and sorting out any queries you may have. We aim to ensure a friendly flotilla with a maximum of 10 yachts sailing with each lead crew. This allows you to visit the small harbours and anchorages which make sailing in Greece so special.
People choose flotillas for a variety of reasons. It’s popular with those who appreciate the support of the lead crew but also with those who have sailed many times before who enjoy the sociable side of a flotilla and the local knowledge and reassurance that the lead crew provide – useful if you’re new to the cruising area. During the school holidays flotillas are particularly popular with families who enjoy an active holiday together. Saronic Flotilla from Athens - the Saronic Golf islands This flotilla starts on Saturday from Kalamaki Marina, the main yacht charter marina in Athens, and cruises the beautiful Greek islands of the Saronic Gulf, an ideal area for flotilla sailing offering reliable winds of moderate strength, short distances and scenic harbours. You’ll visit the picturesque islands of Aegina, Hydra, Spetses and Poros as well as mainland towns such as Epidavros with its famous ancient theatre.
The flotilla follows a 2-week itinerary returning to Athens at the end of each week with clients on a 1-week holiday, while the 2 weekers enjoys a couple of days free sailing before meeting up for the welcome drinks party in Aegina.
Athens & Saronic Gulf Islands The Saronic islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses and the Peloponnese coast offer smooth sailing sheltered from strong winds. The Saronic route is highly recommended for easy sailing, especially in July & August to avoid the strong meltemi winds blowing in the Cyclades. One week the flotilla follows the SARONIC ROUTE.
