The sailing area

Departure base: Preveza (PVK airport)

Located on the mainland, Preveza is a perfect location to start a cruise in the Ionian Islands. This small town is also charming, it is simply the best of Greece, nestled between the mountains and the sea.

The local view is typical of a dreamy Greek destination, with its narrow streets, old neoclassical buildings, traces of Venetian and Turkish influence.

Preveza is perfect for spending your first evening before boarding. You can taste sea bream on the terrace in its narrow streets and enjoy Greek hospitality or have a drink on the seafront.

The green Ionian Islands

The Ionian Islands - also known in Greece as "Eptanisa" (of which the best known are Corfu, Zante and Ithaca) are mainly located west of the Greek mainland which distinguished from other Greek islands by their fertile land (hills of olive trees) and their clear blue waters.

An impression of happiness, of softness, we are well in these islands.

Kefalonia, Ithaca, Paxos, Lefkas, during your cruise you can visit all these islands with incredible heritage. Nature is not to be outdone, in the middle of crystal clear water, pine forests on the surface of the water, beaches and sublime coves await you.

The green lushness of the islands contrasts directly with the eroded high mountains of Albania and mainland Greece that form the eastern border of the Ionian Sea.

These remote islands are only accessible by boat, so take the chance to visit them!

The sailing yacht, S/Y Chronos

Chronos is a Bavaria 50 from 1999.
The Bavaria 50, a 15.40 meter sailboat is a good sized sailboat with a clear foredeck and a large cockpit that can accommodate eight adults.

The performance under sail of the Bavaria 50, even in light and medium air, is good. Maneuverability, speed and sailing ability are excellent for a cruising sailboat of this size.

The two aft cabins are spacious with 2.2x1.60 meter bed

In the front part of the boat, you will find a cabin with two bunk beds and comfortable berths for children or adults. The two double aft cabins are very spacious.

The saloon includes a three-meter C-shaped settee. To the opposite of it is the galley with a two-burner gas cooker, oven and double sink. In the aft of the galley is the chart table and instruments

Stephan, your captain

“My job is to make you feel comfortable on board. I will guide you and explain to you how the sailboat works, so that you get the most out of it. Whether you want to learn sailing, building miles or simply relax on the the deck, I will always be attentive to your wishes.

Sailing is a school of life. I never stop learning and particularly appreciate sharing with you my experience and the pleasure of cruising.

When I sail, I am attentive to every moment and it is a fullness of all the senses. I love being immersed in nature and feeling all the elements.

I have a preference for places that still have a soul, local tourism, places where it is still possible to sail, to drop anchor without being on top of each other. Three years ago, I had a crush on the Ionian Islands, I particularly appreciate their heritage, their magnificent landscapes and the crystal clear waters. »
