Greece marinas and rentals


GREECE is a great sailing destination

Sailing in Greece - SailingClick   Greece is located at the southern part of the Balkan Peninsula and 1/5 of its territory falls on the islands washed by the azure waters of the Aegean and Ionian Seas. Since ancient times, it has been famous for its navigators. During a yachting trip to Greece, you can easily feel like a hero of Homer's poems, or go in search of the lost Atlantis. The sailing regions can be divided into the islands of the Ionian Sea, the Saronic and Argolicos Gulfs, the Cyclades and Dodecanese archipelagos, the Sporades and the Northeastern Aegean Islands. Each region is unique in its own way and has its own specific characteristics.   The yacht infrastructure in Greece is inferior to neighboring Turkey or Croatia in terms of the number of modern comfortable marinas and the level of service. City berths are extremely rarely equipped with mooring lines, and when you pal your sea route, you should note that on most islands you may not find equipped moorings or berth at all, and it is impossible to replenish water, fuel and electricity supplies there. In some places, this problem is solved by calling tank trucks.   But all these shortcomings are more than offset by the presence of more than 2,000 islands, the most indented coast in the Mediterranean, the maximum number of sunny days, the purest water, a variety of routes, the opportunity to plunge into the rich cultural and historical heritage of ancient Greece and feel the local authentic flavor.   The most comfortable time for yachting in Greece is from May to October. The Meltemi wind prevails at this time, which in June gains strength and accelerates to 25-30 knots, and with gusts to 40-50 knots. By evening, it usually subsides, but it can blow for several days in a row. And the Ionian Sea is dominated by the northwestern Maistro (not to be confused with the Mistral) - a steady fresh wind, bringing with it fine weather and light clouds, on average from 2 to 5 on the Beaufort scale. But do not forget about the danger of katabatic winds. The average air temperature in summer is + 27C - + 29C, water - + 23C - + 25C. Please note that in 2019 Greece tightened the rules for admission to operate charter yachts - day skipper licenses are no longer suitable. The situation, of course, can change, so before planning your charter, carefully read the current information.
