WHAT IS A FAMILY-FRIENDLY FLOTILLA? WHO WILL LEAD THE FLOTILLA?
This is a casual flotilla without a ‘theme.’ This is NOT an adult-only flotilla, a party yacht week, or a flotilla focusing solely on hiking or wines or yoga. We’re laid back and run our flotillas that way. We like to do a variety of activities both on the water and on the land. Of course, you’re welcome to explore as you see fit. There is a no ducks in a row mentality; a flotilla offers you independence with peace of mind as well as fun and camaraderie with other flotilla sailors.
The NauticEd team are experts at charters—we will provide pre-charter advice, set the course and itinerary and include recommendations on things to do and see. Along with flotilla leader, Mike Soutos, we’ll provide options for moorings (marinas, mooring balls, or perhaps you prefer to anchor under the stars) as well as optional activities along the way.
Local Greek captain and NauticEd affiliate Mike Soutas of Oasis Sailing – Lefkas will lead the flotilla. Mike is Greek (but speaks perfect English) and has sailed the area for years and years and knows all the best (and hidden) spots.
Qualifications to Bareboat Charter
Licenses: To bareboat charter a yacht in Greece, you must have an appropriate sailing license. There are several accepted licenses including the ICC, and the NauticEd SLC. If you are unsure if you qualify, please ask us and we can assist. If you have experience but do not have a license, visit www.nauticed.org/SLC or contact NauticEd today. Without a doubt, you should be competent at Mediterranean Mooring and have significant sailing experience in your resume.
‘Home” Base & Travel Information
We will be embarking and disembarking from Lefkas.
You can fly direct to Preveza airport (PVK) which is about 20 minutes taxi ride away from the base. There are flights direct from Athens via AegeanAir or Sky Express. You can also fly into Athens and take a bus ride through the greek countryside. The highway is wide and modern.
Many people choose to explore other parts of Greece before or after the sailing vacation.
