First day (about 8 nautical miles): For boarding we await you at the port of SKIATHOS on the island of the same name starting at 14:00 to complete the boarding procedures and carry out the briefing on on-board safety regulations.
After settling in the cabins, we finally let go! Taking a bath and swimming in the crystal clear sea of one of the many bays south of Skiathos such as Ormos Siferi, Tzanaria or perhaps Ormos Platanìa, will be our first approach to this wonderful experience. We will dine on board with one of our gourmet menus and get ready to spend the first night under a firmament of stars.
Second day (about 18 nautical miles): kissed by the sun, we prepare the cockpit table and start the day with a hearty breakfast. With fins and mask we will explore the bay in all its underwater beauties.
We get back on board, open the sails and get back to sailing heading east, passing between the islets of Arkos and Tsoungria in the direction of LIMONARI bay, in the wonderful island of SKOPELOS. After snorkelling in its crystal clear waters, we prepare to watch the sunset by having an aperitif and getting ready for a succulent dinner on board.
Third day (about 16 nautical miles): After a hearty breakfast and the inevitable dives, we remove the moorings and set sail in a north/west direction, crossing the stretch of sea that separates the island of Skopelos from ALONNISOS until we land in the marvelous MOURTIA bay. We will be able to enjoy its crystal clear waters, but at the same time we can go ashore in a tender and immerse ourselves in the greenery, take a beautiful path which in half an hour leads to the ancient village of CHORA. The ancient center of the island, after the earthquake of 1965, was reborn in great beauty with white alleys and suggestive cascades of bougainvillea on the walls of the houses. At this point we will only have to choose which terrace to enjoy a good aperitif while enjoying a great view of the island. Back on board we prepare for dinner and to spend another night cradled by the waves.
Fourth day (about 16 nautical miles): Waking up at anchor offers the privileged dilemma of choosing whether to dive in and then have breakfast or vice versa. Satisfied with the sea and the sun, we reopen the sails and steer the bow to the north/west going up the wonderful coast of Alonnisos until we land in the port of the small and welcoming village of STENI VALA. The characteristic Greek "taverna" that serves tasty fish-based dishes and its tables overlooking the sea will be a temptation that is difficult to resist.
Fifth day (about 18 nautical miles): After a rich breakfast we cannot miss the opportunity to visit the MEDITERRANEAN MONK SEAL ASSISTANCE CENTER. The Center specializes in caring for newborn seals and is considered the literal "home" of orphaned pups. Returning to the boat, we remove the moorings and reopen the sails and going upwind we go north / east towards the island of KIRA PANAYA. Wild and wonderful, the island is located in the heart of the Sporades Islands National Marine Park, immersed in a green oasis of mastic trees, oaks and orchards. It belongs to the Monastic Republic of Mount Athos. In fact, a post-Byzantine monastery has recently been restored, where two monks live (the only inhabitants of the island) who produce and sell wine and oil.
Sixth day (about 16 nautical miles): Waking up surrounded by nature and far from civilization is a lucky constant that also accompanies us on this day. We set sail and open the mainsail and genoa and head south/west towards another pearl of the Sporades, the island of PERISTERA. We will be spoiled for choice among which of its splendid bays to drop anchor. Ormos Vasilikò, Klima or the bay of Peristera itself are the paradise of the monk seal (which reproduces in these waters) and the kri kri goats.
Seventh day (about 16 nautical miles): Satiated with wild and uncontaminated nature it is time to start sailing again. We will enjoy sailing for a few miles and between tacks and tacks we head towards the characteristic town of Skopelos, the main port of the island of the same name. A small town of white houses and red roofs, Skopelos spreads around the medieval castle with its wide views over the Aegean sea. The town has everything you need for a peaceful break, from the typical taverns where you can taste dishes based on the freshest fish and products, to the small cafes where you can stop for a drink, to the craft shops and delicious pastry shops. Walking through the narrow streets (strictly without a name) we will be able to reach the church of S. Maria del Castello, where 70 steps separate us from a breathtaking view of the sea. And for fans of the film Mamma Mia, it is possible to organize a trip by car to the suggestive church of Agios Ioannis Kastri, set of the famous musical starring Marily Streep, which stands on a high rock surrounded by the sea.
Eighth day (about 13 nautical miles): Once the moorings have been removed, we circumnavigate the island of Skopelos to reach the bay of STAFILOS where diving and snorkeling will be the masters. There is also a path along the coast which takes us to the nearby Velanio beach in a few minutes. Good food, good wine and the starry sky will accompany us once again on this umpteenth night at anchor.
Ninth day (about 12 nautical miles): After breakfast, we open the sails and resume the circumnavigation of Skopelos to reach the bay of PANORMOU. Put on masks and fins we get ready for a snorkel among the fish that sparkle on the bottom of clear sand. Time passes slowly and pleasantly and it will be wonderful to be surprised by the colors of the evening sitting in the cockpit enjoying an aperitif on the boat and perhaps going down to the beach to organize a barbecue and a bonfire.
Tenth day (about 12 nautical miles): After a good breakfast it's time to take the last dips in these beautiful waters. We direct the bow towards Skiathos where we expect to arrive in the late morning. We will already feel the nostalgia of the sun and salt in our hair, unforgettable sunsets and the most beautiful bays of the Aegean. It's time to say goodbye and put the memory of an unforgettable experience inside your luggage.
