Known as the "Jewel of the Ionian", Corfu is the gateway to an idyllic sailing holiday in the Northern Ionian.

Corfu is such a convenient base for your sailing holiday, with daily flights and a 15 minute transfer from the airport to the marina. A popular yacht charter destination, Corfu has stunning beaches, crystal clear sea and a beautifully preserved Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

On a yacht charter holiday from Corfu you’ll enjoy great sailing every day with reliable afternoon winds and some longer sailing passages south to the islands of Paxos and Anti-Paxos and across to the west coast of mainland Greece. In the evening moor up in picturesque Greek fishing harbours steeped in history or drop anchor in your own secluded anchorage - a different place to discover every day.

This sailing area is less crowded than the Southern Ionian and a bareboat yacht charter from Corfu is an ideal sailing holiday for couples and families with older children looking to explore the Ionian off the beaten track.

"We would like to thank you for arranging another superb holiday for us in the Dodecanese. We found Kos and the other islands very quiet, with no evidence at all of refugees/migrants. We love sailing in this area, the sailing is great and the people incredibly friendly. Summed up in a message home "The sun is shining, the water's warm, and the beer is cold. Come and join us!"

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.

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?
