Depart 10th June One and Two Week Ionian Sea, Greece Flotilla, Exclusive to Lovesail Members.
Just imagine cruising along in the sunshine on a yacht, dropping anchor for a swim or snorkel in the warm, clear waters of a beautiful bay. Perhaps taking a stroll on the deserted beach of a tiny uninhabited island or discovering exciting, historic towns, tasting the local cuisine and mixing with the friendly people or members.
Sunvil Sailing Holidays provide the ultimate balance between independence and unobtrusive support while sailing. Our specially chosen itineraries ensure you visit some of the best anchorages in the sailing area, while still allowing you to take as much time for free sailing as you like.
However you want to spend your sailing experience enjoying yourself, we’ll make sure you sail safely and have a great time. The ultimate in social sailing is in a flotilla. A great option for singles with a taste for adventure. A holiday with Sunvil Sailing is an informal, relaxed and unique experience. This is a holiday with a difference, seeing somewhere new every day without having to pack and unpack or pay extra travel or hotel expenses.
People from all walks of life go on our sailing holidays. We are there to show you how to do it and gain the most out of your experience while at the same time having fun learning something new, or just brushing up and participating in a passion that you enjoy. There are no hard and fast rules about coming on a sailing holiday and our teams are more than experienced to be able to take you to another level while maintaining your safety, fun and comfort.
We are offering all Lovesail members one and two-week cabin charters departing 10th June, whilst cruising the Ionian Islands as part of our small and social flotilla in Greece. Each yacht will have one of our skipper/instructors aboard so anyone requiring instruction and certification can avail themselves of this; whilst the experienced and certificated clients can enjoy the sailing experience that these waters offer. There is always some self-discovery while on this type of holiday. There’s also the option to meet up at agreed destinations for dinner, beach picnics etc. and to take part in fun regattas and other social events.
Many flotilla enthusiasts say that this is what makes a flotilla trip so special – meeting people with similar interests and sharing the excitement of discovering new sailing areas together. The Ionian Sea is often hailed as the ‘sailing capital’ of Greece and with good reason. The sheltered waters, favourable wind conditions and safe anchorages, in the heart of some stunning island scenery, make this part of the Ionian Sea ideal for both the novice and experienced sailor.
Details of the Sailing Holidays.
The one and two-week cabin charters depart on 10th June. Each member will have their own cabin and the yachts range from 35ft to 50ft depending on numbers and make-up of the group – age, sex, sailing experience etc.
The two-week flotilla will have some longer sails from our base on Lefkas Island into the Sea of Corinth – with a day or two of sightseeing such wonders as Delphi: the one-week participants will accompany the two-week sailors for about four days before having to start heading back to base. We really recommend the two-week package for anyone able to do it as it will give everyone a chance to really gel and to get to know each other better.
The price per person including flights from Gatwick (£39pp supplement for Manchester) and airport transfers in Greece for the one-week cabin charter flotilla is £850pp for Lovesail members (normally £933pp). For the two-week cabin charter flotilla, the price is £1200pp (normally £1353pp).
For members making their own way to the yachts on Lefkas Island and not requiring our flights and transfers, the one-week price is £500pp (normally £550pp) and for two-weeks, it is £900pp (normally £1050pp).
There is an on-site cash payment of £80 per person for the one week holiday and £140pp for two-weeks to cover Certification and Log-Books (where applicable); On-Board Expenses such as Fuel and Tanked Water; Yacht Damage Waiver; Charter Papers; Final end of charter Yacht Clean; Bed-Linen Laundry. Clients will put a kitty together to meet the cost of Mooring Charges and Daily onboard Food – this must also cover the instructor’s portion. Based on four clients this will average about €50 per person per week – depending on individuals’ needs and requirements. Payment in Euros will be accepted at the exchange rate on the day.
We are ATOL bonded and members of ABTA and IATA approved.
