Our sailing area

The Area

Our sailing area reassembles the pretty Saronic and Argolic Gulfs and the Cyclades, including both picturesque islands and attractive mainland ports. You’ll visit different places each day, including some that are ‘off the beaten track’ and easier to reach by sea than by road.


Our island, Aegina, is easily accessible from all around the world. Arriving at Athens International Airport: just take a taxi, bus or metro to Piraeus and board a 1-hour ferry to arrive on the beautiful island of Aegina. Aegina is full of nice beaches, cultural highlights and beautiful nature. A real representation of what Greece has to offer you. Read here more about our home island.

Saronic Gulf

The Saronic gulf, between the coast of Athens and the Peloponnese, is well known for its typical Greek atmosphere. It has something for everyone! From busy nightlife, private bays, idyllic towns to fisherman’s villages, you will always find your best fit. The Saronic offers a multitude of bays and harbours to stay for the night. The most visited ports are Palaia Epidavros, Agistri, Korfos, Methana and Poros. Similarly to the rest of the Greek waters, all ports are self regulated which means you have to med-moor with your anchor. Lucky for you, we will teach you all about it in our courses. While learning and visiting, you will definitely have the best time in the Saronic!

Argolic Gulf

Between the south part of the Peloponnese and the island of Hydra, lies the Argolic Gulf. With other more well known ports such as Spetses, Hermione and the former capital of Greece, Nafplio, this area is a real gem to go visit with your yacht. On the island of Dhokos, or further west, in the bay of Kilada and the bay of Porto Kheli, you will also find beautiful spots to stay for the night. A bit further away from Aegina, this gulf is perfect for a week of sailing with more winds to cover more miles.


In the middle of the Aegean Sea, are gathered dozens of islands, forming the well-known Cyclades. You probably have heard of the famous islands of Mykonos and Santorini before. Well, the Cyclades are also known for their roughness because of the strong summer winds, which can go up to 45-50 knots. These so-called Meltemi winds can sometimes last for 3 to 5 days. This area is thus perfect for more advanced sailors and milebuilding trips because of the distances and strong winds.
