This is a wine activity and unique holiday, all wrapped up together. Taking 7 days, we will charter a luxury catamaran to sail the islands of the Ionian Sea. Wine expert Nathalie Amey will be onboard and will conduct informal tastings each evening for the aperitif. There will be plenty of opportunity to go ashore and visit the local artisan winemakers that dot these islands, with Nathalie acting as wine guide. It will be a wonderful mix of good wine, wine appreciation, authentic Greek food in out of the way tavernas and of course superb sailing on a luxury catamaran. The yacht is based in Lefkas, the starting point with its own airport, so you can be aboard you boat in next to no time. From here we can sail north to Corfu, Paxos, Antipaxos, Syvota and Parga or south to Kefalonia, Ithaka and Zakynthos and the smaller islands Meganisi, Kalamos and Kastos. We will go where we want to and the weather dictates.
From a practical perspective, the boat has 4 double cabins, all with their own en-suite. That means there are 3 cabins free. The cost is per person, twin share and covers the yacht charter fee. The only other cost would be a group kitty where we all put in say 100€ to cover basic food, diesel and any mooring costs.
I'll be the skipper and have the necessary Yachtmaster qualification and experience to make the trip enjoyable. (The website address shows the actual yacht we'd be sailing, it's a brand new Lagoon 42). It will be a trip of a lifetime.
