Day 1 Lefkas
Pick up your yacht, meet the lead crew and get to know your new flotilla friends at our base in the pretty town of Lefkas.
Day 2 Lefkas to Vlikho, Lefkas
Your first spell out on the water takes you south out of the marina and through the narrow channel that separates Lefkas from the mainland.
Day 3 Vlikho to Sivota, Lefkas
Leave Vlikho in your wake and continue your journey south along the island’s coast. You’ll pass tiny Skorpios and the larger island of Meganisi, which you’ll get to know better later on.
Day 4 Sivota to Kioni, Ithaca
Head south from the bay at Sivota and prepare to make your first island hop, sailing past Arkoudi island on your way through the turquoise Ionian to nearby Ithaca.
Day 5 Kioni to Vathy, Ithaca
Continue south along the length of picturesque Ithaca until the island recedes to a narrow waist of land barely 200 metres across. Here you’ll find the Kolpos Molou Bay, and through a narrow entrance, the little town of Vathy.
Day 6 Free sailing day
Now that you’ve had time to grow accustomed to your yacht and develop your confidence on the water, your two free sailing days are a chance to explore the hidden treasures of the Ionian Sea.
Day 7 Free sailing day
With two free sailing days to make the most of, go further afield and visit Grecian highlights outside of the flotilla itinerary.
Day 8 Agia Efemia, Kefalonia
The flotilla reunites once more in the lovely town of Agia Efemia on Kefalonia’s east coast.
Day 9 Agia Efemia to Fiskardo, Kefalonia
Sail north along the craggy peninsula that juts like a bony finger from Kefalonia’s northeast coast.
Day 10 Fiskardo to Port Leone, Kalamos
Unfurl your sails and let the wind take you across the gentle Ionian. Cruise east past the northern end of Ithaca and verdant Arkoudi, squeezing into the channel between the islands of Kastos and Kalamos.
Day 11 Port Leone to Kalamos Town
A short cruise east along the coast of Kalamos will take you to the small village of the same name.
Day 12 Free sailing day
Use the last of your free sailing days to explore the eastern shores of the Ionian Sea.
Day 13 Port Athene, Meganisi
After your last free sailing day the flotilla meets up once more for another evening on shore. Make for the eastern coast of beautiful Meganisi, spread like a many-fingered hand over the flawless blue counterpane of the Ionian Sea.
Day 14 Port Athene to Lefkas
The final leg of your flotilla adventure sees you return to our base at Lefkas Marina. Sail north from Port Athene, slowly making your way past the islands of Skorpios and Sparti while hugging the coast of mountainous Lefkas.
