In this cruising area there are many picturesque harbours and peaceful anchorages. The flotilla crew will set the itinerary each week depending on the prevailing wind conditions and other factors but here is an example of a typical itinerary:
FRI : Embark at Loutraki, a pretty harbour on the island of Skopelos, a short water taxi ride away from Skiathos harbour.
SAT : Skiathos (6 nm) – after a morning briefing set sail to the lively island of Skiathos. Plenty of time to anchor on the fantastic beaches stopping in Skiathos town for a punch party and meal together.
SUN : Paleo Trikeri (25 nm) – Sail into the gulf of Volos towards the beautiful island of Paleo. Numerous opportunities to explore the gulf and a leisurely swim stop.
MON : Volos (15 nm) – The main town in the gulf offering bars and tavernas on the seafront. There may be the oppotunity to go in to the mountains for an authentic Greek barbecue.
TUE : Milina (18 nm) – Visit the lovely village of Kato Gatzea before heading to Milina for the evening.
WED : FREE SAILING – Amaliapoli or Achillio on the mainland or maybe Orei on Evia (20nm). All have lovely harbours and local restaurants to explore.
THU : Loutraki (20 nm) – a swimming stop and a leisurely sail back to our base. Time for drinks on board before a last night out.
FRI : Disembark. Two-week flotilla on independent sailing with rendez-vous at Patitiri on Alonnisos.
