Flotillas in Greece
Flotilla sailing holidays are an ideal mix between sailing your own charter yacht and having the support and advice of the flotilla lead crew to make the most of your sailing holiday.
If you have sailing experience you can join a flotilla and skipper your own charter yacht. Less experienced skippers will appreciate help from the flotilla skipper with mooring stern to or bows to the quayside at the end of an enjoyable afternoon's sail. More experienced skippers join a flotilla for the social life. Flotilla sailing holidays are a popular choice for couples, friends and families. During the school holidays there are usually other families in the flotillas so it's fun for the kids as well.
The flotilla sailing itineraries are arranged so that you visit the best places but there is always the opportunity for free sailing. Stop for a lunchtime swim and picnic in a beautiful bay. Enjoy great sailing in the afternoon breeze before mooring up for the night in a bustling Greek harbour where you can step off your yacht onto a quayside full of bars and tavernas.
