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 our Corfu flotilla. Starting and finishing in Gouvia marina, the classic "South Route" takes a gentle and meandering route between mainland Greece and the famous Paxos island, visiting unspoilt villages, lively towns and world-famous bays. The more adventerous "North Route" offers more challenging sailing conditions exploring the lesser known northern bays and remote Erikousa island.

With a good mix of shorter and longer passages, light to moderate winds, and the lead crew on hand for constant support, 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.

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). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. 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.

For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.

If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
