The Greek Islands have long being a favourite place to learn to sail, with many islands to explore, bustling waterfront towns, excellent beaches, and historic archaeological sites There are many less known islands where you can get away from the hustle and bustle in the peak season, and the Ionian islands boast the best snorkelling in Greece. There are also many small uninhabited islands and these need to be fully researched before anchoring there. These waters are non-tidal.
The Meltemi wind dominates the summer weather here. It starts off in the morning as a light breeze but progresses to a moderate breeze in the afternoon and usually drops before the sun sets.
