Discovery sail from Cyclades to South Crete island of Gavdos


One way from SYROS Cyclades to Paleohora southwest CRETE.


This discovery sailing is for the one who wonts something different, Paros Mykonos Santorini is splendid but most of you probably have visit.

Two things push me to plan this trip:

First the climatic changes, the prevailing winds in Greece and especially in Aegean sea are from North to South, as everywhere around the world there are stronger year after year, so the first is to propose to you one comfortable sailing downwind and to be sure that you will enjoy your cruise.

The second thing is to go to same places that probably you will not easily visit, to swim on exemptional spot, visit the Hora of beautiful islands and to taste the real Greek cuisine with local products, heat same fish directly from the fisherman boats.

During these twelve days I will be your guide to propose to you the best spots, the best tavernas, the best places to visit.

Trust me that I will do my best to have unforgettable holidays with respect to all Safety rules.

A few words about your skipper

A few words about your skipper

Am born in France and I live in Greece since 1981 my studies was on the industry and I come to Greece working for the aerospace industry first and after for the restoration, the TV and finaly from 1999 on the sea after two years of sailing on my boat a Wauquiez Centurion 35 in 2001 I start to work as professional skipper.

My first boat was bought am was eighteen years old.

That am enjoy mostly is the beauty in the nature or in art, I like waking fishing and good food of course I like cooking.

My style on the sea: The straight line is not always the fastest or the more comfortable, I don’t waste the day on useless turning tack.

Listen to the sea and the wind they guide you and always give you the best course.

After forty years of sailing in Greek waters you can trust my experience and I will show you the places I love.

Your skipper
