Sailing-Classics Mediterranean Voyage

CORFU & THE IONIAN ISLANDS

The seven main islands and countless small islets of the Ionian archipelago lie to the west of the Greek mainland coast, the northernmost Corfu itself at the level of Albania. Typical for the area are light to medium winds, crystal-clear water, picturesque bays, places with a lot of history, traces of the gods and, with Ithaca, the home of Odysseus. Many writers, artists and celebrities such as Sisi, the Empress of Austria, with her Achilleion on Corfu or Aristotle Onassis recognized the appeal of the Ionian archipelago.

Arrival & Departure

The Greek island of Corfu is most easily reached by plane and there are regular flights to the airport in spring and summer. The journey by ferry via Brindisi in Italy is a little more adventurous and longer.

WIND & Weather

Blessed with an average of 315 cloudless days a year, the region offers long evenings with beautiful sunsets, gentle winds and a calm sea during the high season from April to October. The water temperature is around 28 °C in the high season. The two prevailing winds alternate, Meltemi in summer and Scirocco in winter.

Routing details

We sail from Corfu via the northern route to Paleokastritsa, one of Corfu’s most beautiful bays on the northwest coast. Via the smallest and perhaps prettiest island of Paxos with its rugged bays and thousands of olive trees and Antipaxos, we continue south – wind permitting – via Kefalonia and Ithaca, from where Odysseus ruled his empire according to Greek mythology. In light winds, we tend to stay close to Corfu and visit the enchanting Parga on the mainland coast. Or past Skorpios, for decades the private island of the Onassis family, and along Lefkada back to Corfu – relaxed sailing with plenty of time for swimming, shore excursions and relaxation.
