2017 dates: 30 Apr | 14, 28 May | 11, 25 Jun | 9, 23 Jul | 6, 20 Aug | 3, 17 Sep | 1 Oct
SUN : Embark at Palairos. You join your flotilla in our beautifully located Palairos base, just a short drive from Preveza airport. The superb setting, with views across to Meganisi and Scorpio, the island owned by the Onassis family, will soon put you in the holiday mood! And there’s time for a stroll around the shops after settling in on your yacht.
MON : Kalamos (14nm). Enjoy a sail south to the island of Kalamos. Port Kalamos is a sleepy little harbour with a few restaurants and shops on the quayside for visiting yachts. Take a walk up to the old town for views and a visit to the bakery.
TUE : Vathi, Ithaka (20nm). The capital of Ithaca, Vathi (means “deep” in Greek) is large bay with plenty of mooring options for yachts although the wind strength and direction may dictate where we berth. There are plenty of restaurants specialising in fish and seafood and you must sample the home made ice-cream from any of the shops along the seafront.
WED : Kioni, Ithaka 6nm). The village is an exceptional beauty set amidst a setting of olive groves. The lovely houses form an amphitheatre around the steep slopes of the bay with its amazing deep blue waters. After an enjoyable sail, relax moored to the jetty, only a few steps away from the tavern.
THU : Spartochori, Meganisi (18nm) Those who wish may stop over at one of the beautiful bays on Meganisi for a midday swim. Spartochori is a great setting for an evening, watching an amazing sunset over the top of the village.
FRI : Varco (7nm) Tonight we have our beach BBQ in this quiet anchorage with good shelter.
SAT : Return to Palairos (5nm). Rather than head straight back you can return to one of the many anchorages on Meganisi, perhaps Abelike Bay, for a last lunch stop and swim before returning to Palairos
SUN : Disembark at Palairos.
