The Dodecanese Islands (literally translated means 12 islands) are a group of 12 larger Greek islands plus around 150 smaller ones.  They are located around the South-East corner of the Aegean Sea near to the Turkish coast, and are known as a “Sailor’s Paradise”.   The Meltemi, a prevailing wind blows during the summer months and makes for great sailing.

The Excellence of Dart runs many other trips too.  There are plenty of opportunities for families and friends, single-sex sailing weeks and mixed group cruises, gentle island hopping and more challenging sailing adventures. You can take a relaxing week of pottering,  join a windward adventure or sign up for a leg or more of the rally and sail to places you’ve never even dreamed you’d visit and along the way learn about Middle Eastern cultures and history.
