Eventually, we love sailing holidays very much! Well, it all started five years ago, when we decided to attend sailing courses. Once we got our certificates, we talked a bunch of friends into it and we chartered a yacht for our first sailing holidays that took place in the Ionian sea. We had a fantastic time on board; we all shared the excitement of this new experience and we really enjoyed ourselves. As beginners, we were not confident enough to go on our own, so we chartered a skippered yacht; a very nice, cozy and comfortable Lagoon 420 catamaran.
Conveniently, we started our journey from Lefkada. We had already arranged for the catamaran which was at the marina waiting for us and we begun our 2 weeks’ journey there. We started our tour with Lefkada beloved beaches and in between we docked at several secluded bays where we enjoyed our private swimming. Our tour included Kephalonia and Paxos islands and several smaller islets and uninhabited islands such as Tragonisi, Kastos, Meganisi, Marmaronisi and Skorpios.
We had a wonderful time while sailing and we were pleasantly surprised with our discoveries; small hidden treasures in all the islands that we docked. We were very lucky because our skipper knew all the amazing beaches with the superb green blue water colors and he led us to all of them. We also trusted him for our food; we ate lovely local delicacies and wines in small, cozy and totally authentic places, far away from the massive tourist areas.
Each of the places we saw and visited remains still a delightful memory for all of us. We had an excellent time and we enjoyed dreamy holidays. Besides the places, we really had a lovely time on board. The catamaran was more than comfortable; four fully sized cabins each with its own shower and a spacious salon were fully equipped with all kinds of amenities and accessories that we might need. Well, thinking of all these right now just makes us even more anxious about this summer’s sailing plans.
