This is the perfect sailing area for a relaxing holiday especially on a catamaran! A reliable afternoon breeze for sailing and numerous interesting places to visit. Our Catamaran is based in Lefkas, the starting point of your holiday with its own airport, so you can be aboard you boat in next to no time. From here you can sail north to Corfu, Paxos, Antipaxos, Syvota and Parga or south to Kefalonia, Ithaka and Zakynthos and the smaller islands Meganisi, Kalamos and Kastos.

There are many quiet sandy beaches in picturesque coves where you can anchor enjoy an afternoon of water sports or if you prefer a stroll on the beach.

The wind and sailing conditions in the Ionian Sea are ideal and predictable. From May to September the wind blows from North-West at Force 2-5 arriving around noon, and calming down before sunset. During the months of July and August, the above said winds can blow a little stronger than usual but in general the weather conditions in the area are extremely favourable for a relaxing and trouble-free sailing vacation making the area a highly recommended place for family and smooth sailing in July

The Ionian Islands located on the western side of mainland Greece, are seven main islands that are different from many of the Greek islands in the Aegean sea and are distinguished by their fertile land covered with olive groves and cypress trees and crystal clear blue waters.

Chartering a catamaran in the Ionian Islands is the best place for a yacht holiday on a multi-hull.

Lefkas Marina is situated on the eastern side of the island, literally embraced by Lefkas town and right beside the main harbour. It is virtually a separate town within a town. Thus, visitors arriving at the marina have the opportunity to visit the historic centre of the island and its museums, to wander through the charming paved alleyways, do their shopping or enjoy a coffee in the town's central shopping area and to come into direct contact with the customs and traditions of the community of Lefkas.

Lefkas great advantage is its geographical position. A bridge just 50 metres long separates the island from mainland Greece, a fact which greatly facilitates the visitor's direct and speedy approach via the Aktion airport and from other destinations.
