7 days around Delos
We were a group of 4 couples, friends since ever, and this was our second trip together. Two years ago one of the couples of our group took a trip with SAIL THE GREEK ISLANDS and the Captain Yanis, so we choose them again for our own trip. It was fantastic days, not only because the incredible and beautiful islands of Greece, but mainly for the knowledge of our captain of the best swimming spots and how to reach it on the best and safest way.
In addition of that our captain was a pleasant and nice guy who were all the time worry about us and the schedule.
Here we come again!!!!
My wife and I honeymooned with Yiannis and Sharon nearly 14 years ago!!! Our time with them was magical and they became true friends!!! His knowledge of the seas is incredible and we just couldn’t wait to get back!!! Now the kids are getting older and next year we are planning another trip and we can’t wait.

Sailing the Ionian Islands
Dearest Yianni, we loved every moment of our holiday with you. You’re the best skipper we have had. It was such a pleasure to be guided by you and your experience was so reassuring to us. You showed us all of the Ionian treasures. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality and sharing your beautiful islands with us. Much love Anastasia and James McKeon. See you again next year we hope!
Excellent family trip
We brought our 3 kids (ages 13, 11 and 8) for a week from the US. Yanis was great. He is an expert sailor, brought us to a rich variety of islands based on the winds and accommodated the wishes of both the adults and kids with pleasure. He gave the kids fun tasks to do so that they were active participants in the process. They felt that they learned something, built confidence and had a great time. This is a great family bonding trip!
If you are looking to book a charter to sail the Greek Islands, you will need a Captain that is knowledgeable, experienced, & friendly. Captain Yiannis is all of the above and more. We had a fabulous sailing experience that, along with the shear beauty of the various islands, was made possible by our Captain. Add in his great knowledge of Greek history and his sense of humour, you have your man. Trust us, you will not be disappointed with your decision to hire Captain Yani. Thanks 👨🏻✈️
The Great Greek Adventure
We have had a great adventure in exploring the beautiful country of Greece!! We have seen many islands thanks to Yannis, who has an unsurpassed knowledge of the and we might add amazing docking skills! Matoula has been an amazing hostess,a wonderful cook and always gracious with a beautiful attitude. We will never forget our Great Adventure!
Yannis Stassis is the Bestis!!!!
Well, what can we say!!!!! From start to finish we had the most Spectacular vacation of a life time.
Our Captain Yannis gave us every thing we asked and more. He is the most Amazing Jewel of the Greek Islands. He took the time to listen to our needs and what we wanted. He also educated us on all of the Greek Traditions and Mythology.
We went to 8 spectacular Islands, swam in the most beautiful waters, Climbed Steps to the tallest of mountains. That is just in one day!!! The favorite being Milos. This is the town Yannis is from. He took us to visit his family as well as, showing us the spectacular countryside.
Everyehere we went Yannis knew everyone at the ports and allowed us to dock. He also knew all of the most popular Bars and Eateries. Where the locals went for the most traditional food and drink. Lastly, Yannis is a very honest and humble. Even though we have never met his family, we feel like we have known them our whole lives. That speaks volumes. You will not be dissappointed.!!!!!!!
Sailing with Yiannis
We’ve just spent a week sailing the Greek islands with Captain Yiannis. If your looking for a safe pair of hands, experience and unlimited knowledge of the Greek islands then Yiannis is the captain you need. We encountered some unusually bad weather and were very glad he was there to guide us through it all safely. He took us to see sites and very special places that we never even would have known were there, so we saw a lot more than we could hope for and I, as a novice sailor, learned a huge amount in a very short space of time. The boat was great and the captain was great, so we couldn’t of asked for anything more. Highly recommended!!
Sailing the Cyclades Islands – Best vacation ever
4 Canadian women sailed for 2 weeks with Yiannis Stassis. His expertise and knowledge made this the best vacation. I would highly recommend sailthegreekislands.
Honeymoon of the Cyclades
We decided to spend our honeymoon on a 10 day sail through the Cyclades in the beginning of September. In our 10 days we were able to see Cape Sounion, Kythnos, Ios, Santorini, Folegandros, Polyegos, Milos, Hydra, Poros, and Aegina. We had ZERO sailing experience but that didn’t stop Captain Yiannis from teaching us a few things about sailing. He tought us 4-5 different knots that came in handy when he needed us to help out and he even let us do some of the actual sailing! Captain Yiannis gave us input on what islands he thought would be best to visit but ultimately left the decision of where to go and how long to stay on each island up to us! The itinerary was very flexible and Yiannis was willing to take us to any of our desired islands even if it meant spending two days in a very busy and full to the brim Santorini. Milos was the highlight of our trip; it is the island that Yiannis comes from and is an amazing island. If you get the chance to go to Greece you MUST visit Milos. We could not have imagined a better way to see the islands of Greece; to be able to visit multiple islands in multiple days sailing through the blue of the Aegean is absolutely the way to go!
