We will be moving the boat from Athens to Kefalonia.
The boat is a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440 Check it out here
This is quite a journey: out of Athens across the Saronic Gulf perhaps with a stop in Epidavros or Korfos, through the astounding Corinth Canal, up the length of the Gulf of Corinth, under the great bridge at Rion then across perhaps to Ithaca and finally to Kefalonia. At least 220 nautical miles.
If the weather permits there may be a chance to visit the great theatre at Epidavros: amongst other places we usually try to do overnights in the tiny fortified Venetian galley harbour at Navpaktos, at the lovely little island of Trisonia and at Galaxidi, handy for Delphi.
For most people though the Corinth Canal is the highpoint of this voyage.
The routes shown here are no more than suggestions. We have no fixed itinerary.
We can decide on where we want to stop en route. We can decide on daily distances, when we want to start, if we want to anchor for a lunchtime swim, we can even decide whether we want to do an overnight passage.
Hopefully the aspiring skippers will take charge for the day and create a suitable passage plan.
If you are interested in this voyage we would really suggest you do a bit of research on the routes and the ports at which we might stop. Google Earth is a very good place to start. If you are really interested try to get hold of one of the excellent pilot books for the area.
Whatever route we choose we will be sailing past very beautiful islands through “wine blue” waters. Lovely little ports with great tavernas, good food and hopefully a cold beer.
