EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN

The eastern Mediterranean shares boarders with Europe, Asia and Africa. The deep waters of the Mediterranean reach up to 3 miles in depth and are commonly hit by sudden and surprisingly strong winds making these waters suitable for a more experienced sailor. The difference in temperature between the land and sea also creates more localised breezes, which are generally northerly in the morning, variable at midday and strong southerly in the afternoon. All this can make for extremely challenging sailing.

The most popular waters for relaxed, easy sailing are in the Ionian Islands just off northern Greece. Here the calm harbors of Lefkas and Meganisi provide many with their first experience of warm weather sailing. The small islands make navigation simple with Corfu, Ithaca and Cephalonia follow on to other favored destinations in the north. The Peloponnese peninsula and the Saronic Gulf in southern Greece offer calm waters and light winds that are perfect for those learning to sail.
