Really Useful Info
The Ionian is a very safe and popular sailing area because of the favourable winds and the multitude of small, secure anchorages and quays. Even so safety is of paramount importance and an appropriate level of experience is required. In addition the skipper of the yacht must hold a valid Bareboat licence (RYA Day Skipper Practical, ICC, ASA 104 etc). If you have previously skippered a flotilla yacht in the area then this could be the next step for you. For those wishing to brush up on their sailing skills we normally suggest that we provide a skipper for a day or two to build up confidence and ensure safe sailing. If you would prefer the security of a "live ashore" skipper to accompany you throughout your holiday; then our resident British skipper would be more than happy to assist. References from charterers who have used this service are available. In any case, if you are at all unsure - call us to talk it through.
In the event that you require assistance whilst out on charter, we are just a phone call away. If the problem cannot be sorted over the telephone, we will come to you as quickly as possible. Our Atlantic 21 rescue RIB is on standby - and we do not need many excuses to go for a blast across the sea!
