There are two very distinct sailing areas you can choose from Athens. Sail to the beautiful Saronic islands of Aegina, Poros and Spetse, and enjoy ancient ruins and castles, sandy beaches, unspoiled anchorages and small fishing ports. Ideal for a one week charter, this route also offers smoother sailing conditions in the summer months, as it is sheltered from the strong Meltemi winds that blow in the Cyclades.
