Quoting Nikos Kazantzakis, “…happy is the man, who, before dying has the fortune to sail the Aegean Sea…”! With one of the longest coastlines in the world and the thousands islands and islets, Greece challenges you to sail your winds to your own sailing odyssey! Since the times of Homer, who wrote the first great epic for sailors and shipwrecks in the Odyssey, Greek people were fighting with the Greek seas to write their own maritime and seamanship history. Today, the Aegean, Cretan, Ionian, Ikarian, Libyan, Myrtoan and Thracian Seas are waiting for you to discover your own corner of paradise. The perfect weather conditions in the Greek seas make sailing enthusiasts to fall in love with Greece. The Argosaronic Islands are one of the most popular sailing destinations due to their close proximity to Athens and their protection from the strong winds and the rough seas while the Peloponnese Peninsula offers great escapes to mythical destinations including Elafonisos Island, the Laconian Gulf and the Messenian Gulf. Scattered with abundant islands and isles, the Aegean Sea is the most famous sailing destination in Greece, owing to the mild changes in temperature, the predictable winds and the absence of strong currents. With endless bays, coves and harbors, the Aegean provides safe anchorages. Keep in mind, however, that the prevailing summer northern winds blow from five to seven Beaufort from May to September. Sailing in the Cyclades promises unforgettable experiences due to the close distance of the islands while the Sporades offer another ideal setting for sailing enthusiasts, due to the milder northern winds than the southern Aegean. Further away, the Dodecanese provide numerous islands for sailing explorations. As they are situated off the coast of Asia Minor, the Dodecanese are ideal for long sailing expeditions. And the Ionian Islands; you might even feel like you are in another world! Blessed from emerald and turquoise waters, the Ionian boasts a different atmosphere from the Aegean. Renowned for their mild summer weather conditions, the seven islands provide excellent shelters with astonishing sceneries full of vegetation and crystalline waters. Whether you choose the Argosaronic Islands, the Cyclades, Crete, the Dodecanese Islands, Euboea, the Ionian Islands, the Sporades Islands, the Northeast Aegean Islands, it will be inevitable not to find your own Odyssey.
