    Holiday Options

    New to sailing or a newly qualified skipper? a) Take a formal 5 day RYA course at the start of your holiday before sailing yourselves without the skipper b) Take a small yacht and follow our assisted sailing idea where the skipper is with you during the day for a flexible number of days and doesn't sleep on board or c)Take a skippered charter when you have a skipper all week on board and do as much learning/relaxing as you wish.

    assisted sailing

    Assisted Sailing is one of the most popular options for less experienced or nervous sailors who want to enjoy the delights of the Ionian Islands without the need to “check in” and “check out” with a group of other yachts on a flotilla every day. The skipper is with you on an open ended basis and leaves the boat each evening after ensuring you are moored safely in a different port each night. We offer a unique service and have had a great deal of success in refreshing peoples skills and knowledge in a short space of time, without sacrificing any safety aspects. Have the skipper on board for a day, a few days or a week.

    Bareboat Yacht Charter in Greece This holiday is available for both experienced sailors and newly qualified. We provide a level of support to suit experience, which includes our free stern too mooring clinic on a Monday morning. This tends to be popular with many guests, as a refresher or for those new to the area, to practice in friendly company and pick up any tricks of the trade. We are also available to help you with mooring on Monday evening in Sivota - there are no additional charges for this service. Bareboaters also receive weather texts each morning and in the unlikely event of any support being needed, we have an excellent large support rib and 24 hour emergency telephone number to call.


    Informal Flotilla- we don't offer a normal flotilla but you can join a group of yachts following a set route who meet up each night so you have a friendly face to help find you a mooring space (and assist if you have difficulties). Sail Ionian operates this service every week for the first 2 days of your holiday. You will also be able be able to gain valuable route knowledge on a daily basis although will not have to attend group briefings and large group meals. This will suit the less experienced, families with children or for anyone wanting support for the first one or two days of their holiday. For those looking for a helping hand every evening we have weekly informal flotillas running in August.


    Sail Ionian's RYA Sea School offers thorough training to the highest standard. We offer the full range of courses for those looking for a formal qualification. Our RYA centre provides Start Yachting, Competent Crew, Day Skipper (non tidal), Coastal Skipper (non tidal) and Yachtmaster Preparation. Specialised one day courses for boat handling, advanced sail trim, couple sailing techniques or navigation also available. Courses are available for both individuals, couples, families and groups of friends. If you are looking for a day or two in a rib we also run RYA Level 1 and 2 powerboat training and ICC Powerboat Assessments.


    Skippered Charter: If new to sailing or just looking for a relaxing stress free holiday, why not have a fully skippered week, where you can do as much or as little sailing as you like.

    All yachts can be taken with a skipper. The Hanse 495 and our Bavaria 56 are air-conditioned, the Open 40 catamaran provides spacious outdoor living accommodation. A cook/hostess can also be provided on larger yachts.

    day charter

    Day Charter: Why not charter one of our yachts for a day, or two, or even three! If you have a recognised sailing qualification (ICC, Day Skipper) you can take a bareboat, alternatively you can have a skippered charter. So whether you just want a relaxing day, or want to "learn the ropes" we will have something to offer you. A typical day charter includes anchoring off for a refreshing swim and a snorkell, a visit to an neighbouring island for lunch, and as much or as little sailing as you would like.
