Joining Instructions & FAQ's Corfu


Please complete the crew list as soon as possible as this will avoid delays in processing your yacht papers which could in turn delay you setting sail. 

If you have booked a skipper please ignore the skipper sections of the form but allocate one of your party who is over 18 as ‘First Mate’. It is our job to make sure you have a great trip so do contact us at any time with any questions.





If you need any help or information when arranging your travel to Corfu we will be glad to help. We can offer all the flight and travel information you will need. The transfer to Gouvia Marina takes 20 minutes from Corfu airport. There will be taxis waiting to take you directly to Gouvia marina outside airport arrivals. Taxis cost around 30 euro.

Please let Island Sailing know the approximate time of your arrival to the Marina. If you are going to be significantly earlier or later than expected please call Island Sailing (see contact information below). Upon arrival please make your way to our Corfu Partner's office at Dream Yacht / Vernicos located within the Marina Gouvia, close to the North entrance (please see map below).

Unless you have booked a skipper you must bring the original copy(s) of your sailing qualifications/skipper's licence.

A VISA or MASTERCARD Credit Card for your yacht security deposit (Debit Cards and American Express are NOT accepted). Please make sure you have a large enough limit to cover the deposit for the yacht you have booked. If you do not possess a VISA or MASTERCARD credit card you must inform us BEFORE you travel to Greece as your charter can't commence without the completed credit card security deposit.

At least one mobile phone set up for roaming in Greece and charger – it is very important that we can keep in contact in case of emergency as VHF signal is only line of sight.


Travel light is our advice. Dress is casual around the Ionian Islands and you won’t need different sets of clothes for every evening. Don’t forget your passport(s).

Please bring your luggage in a soft bag that will fold down without wheels or hard edges. Space on a yacht is limited and cases with hard edges and wheels will often damage the woodwork on the boat. Unfortunately we do not have a luggage store.

Bedding and yacht towels are provided on your yacht. If you have a late flight home we recommend bringing another towel if you wish as yacht towels cannot be kept after you disembark on the last day.

All yachts are equipped with sufficient numbers of life jackets, usually of a standard size. If you are not a standard size, or especially for small children it is wise to bring your own life jackets . If you would like to check about this before you come to Greece please get in touch.
