How to plan your sailing holiday itinerary?

Planning your Greek island sailing holiday can be a lot of fun. Plot your own route around the many picturesque bays, little harbours, town quays and fishing villages scattered throughout our Ionian island sailing areas.

Books and charts can be purchased at home and although they will be on your boat when you arrive in Greece, they will enable you to plan itineraries and routes prior to departure. The books cover the places you are likely to explore on your yacht charter  holiday and are full of great tips and advice.

Two of the best and most informative and ones which you will use time after time are:

  • Ionian by Rod Heikell, published by Imray
  • Ionian Cruising Companion, by Vanessa Bird, published by Wiley

The Charts for the sailing areas include:

  • G121 – The Inland Sea
  • G12 - Lefkas to Zakynthos
  • G11 - North Ionian Island - Nisos Kerkira to Nisos Levkas

Don't worry if you don't get time to do any planning before you arrive at our base in Lefkas marina. We are always very happy to talk though your cruising holiday plans with you and can help with plenty of ideas on where to visit and explore in the beautiful Greek Ionian islands. With plenty of books, guides and cruising ideas onboard your Island Sailing yacht you will never need to worry about where to sail to next!
