Sept. 17 – 24, 2022
Back at home and enjoying fantastic fall weather, we love to think back about the wonderful week we sailed the Ionian Islands in September. Michael and I decided to hire a captain and it was the right decision. Captain Yannis with plenty of experience and deep knowledge of Greece and the Islands put together a very beautiful and exciting week of sailing for us. As we didn’t know this particular area his choices of harbors and docking would make all the difference for our experience. He did the right thing! We could explore the small villages, eat excellent meals ashore and experience the vibe of the places.
We always felt safe as Yannis handled the boat w/ knowledge and the ocean w/ respect.
Docking was sometimes a bit of a battle, trying to fit the boat into very tight spots making neighboring boats feel uneasy, or too close to ferry landings, or at places where the dock master did not want to have us…
We had a great time aboard with Yannis and we would always recommend his company “Sail the Greek Islands” for a very enjoyable sailing trip. Next time we will ask Poseidon for a bit more wind 😉
We have spent such a wonderful time onboard with Yiannis. He showed up the beautiful Cyclades and his home island – milos. We are incredibly thankful for such an unforgettable week. Yiannis is such a wonderful captain
Incredible, once in a lifetime trip! Captain Yiannis is truly an exceptional sailor and knows the special, less traveled sights to visit. Each day was better than the one prior. Relaxing mornings with delicious breakfast and coffee, sailing to gorgeous swimming holes for paddle boarding and exploring, another yummy authentic greek mid-day meal, followed by at sea anchor or port tie up for more discovery or evening under the stars. Captain and host (Elektra) fast became like family and an additional enjoyable part of our experience. Many laughs, games and dancing shared! Would do it again and explore other island sites!
Ideal Guide to Navigate the Greek Islands!
Captain Yiannis- what a great captain and overall person!
His perfect Canadian English and deep Greek island (Milos) roots coupled with his over 40 years of sailing makes him the ideal guide to navigate the Greek waters and history.
He has deep knowledge of the islands and seas around them. He took my wife and I to some amazing spots and guided back to our Wedding venue in a remote Mykonos bay.
Most importantly, he’s honest, easy to get along with, and has a great sense of humor. All in all, a great travel companion!
