NEW for 2019! The perfect mix of quaint, unassuming villages, atmospheric towns, reliable winds and breathtaking scenery makes the Corfu flotilla a 'must' for all sailors.

Explore the beautiful Northern Ionian on this brand new flotilla for 2019. Starting and finishing in Gouvia marina, the flotilla takes a gentle and meandering route along mainland Greece visiting unspoilt villages, lively towns and world famous bays. Take in the towns of Parga, Gaios and Lakka - so much Ionian charm in just one week of sailing. On your final day of sailing, a lunch stop at Corfu’s spectacular Old Citadel is a perfect way to end the holiday.

With a good mix of shorter and longer passages, steady winds and the lead crew at your beck and call, the Corfu flotilla is suitable for a wide range of sailors.

We embrace a relaxed flotilla atmosphere where you are free to plot your own course and arrival at each day's destination if you would like to. More experienced skippers enjoy this freedom whilst taking advantage of the social aspect of the flotilla. Less experienced skippers will appreciate the invaluable assitance of the lead crew, giving you the peace of mind to enjoy your holiday.

    Flotilla Route

    ">

    Day 1 (Saturday) : Corfu

    You join your flotilla at Gouvia marina, just a 15 minute drive from Corfu airport. This modern marina is a great starting point for your holiday and after settling in on your yacht there’s time for a stroll around the shops and a relaxing dinner.

    Day 2 (Sunday) : Plataria (23nm)

    Enjoy a relaxed first day's sail south to the mainland village of Plataria. This quiet village remains widely unknown to tourists and is a perfect spot to enjoy dinner in a waterfront taverna whilst getting to know your fellow flotilla crews.

    Day 3 (Monday) : Parga (20nm)

    The beautiful town of Parga offers great beaches and clear blue waters set within a picturesque bay. Colourful houses line the hillside and the ruined walls of the Venetian castle can be seen sitting high above the town.

    Day 4 (Tuesday) : Gaios, Paxos (13nm)

    Today's sail takes us past the world famous emerald bay of Antipaxos and on to the sophisticated main town of Paxos, Gaios. Gaios' narrow lanes are filled with shops and tavernas which make for a fabulous evening.

    Day 5 (Wednesday) : Lakka, Paxos (11nm)

    Lakka is a true Ionian gem, a beautiful little village which often becomes our clients' favourite spot.

    Day 6 (Thursday) : Sivota, Mourtos (12nm)

    Sailing back across to the mainland we visit the revamped little town of Sivota in the magnificent bay of Mourtos. Soak up the atmosphere whilst watching the beautiful Greek sunset.

    Day 7 (Friday) : Corfu (19nm)

    Before returning to Gouvia Marina, a lunch stop at Corfu's spectacular old Citadel is the perfect way to end the holiday.

    Day 8 (Saturday) : Corfu

Sailing Qualifications

To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.

For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.

RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.
