Summer 2016 bookings open 27th Oct
Set just off the coast of Athens, the Saronic islands rise out of brilliant blue waters which provide perfect sailing conditions. Great Greek food, bright white buildings forming a picturesque postcard-like coastline and throw in some ouzo - now you have a location like no other. There will be two routes (Blue and White) which visit the same spots but in a different order with around 20 yachts in each fleet.
This small port town is an hour’s drive from Athens airport and offers a range of charming restaurants and iconic fish markets. Lavrio even has supermarkets which will deliver food straight to your yacht if you wish to stock up on (bath size) tubs of hummus for the week. The Welcome Party will be hosted in the evening with a chance to meet your fellow Yacht Weekers.
The true gem of the Saronic route, Hydra is the definition of tranquility and relaxation. No cars. No scooters. Just tiny cobbled lanes, oh, and donkeys. Absolute bliss. Hydra sits below a steep mountain slope in a sheltered bay offering breathtaking views. In the evening there will be a dinner at the Sunset Restaurant followed by a party at Omilos Club.
Originally built in the shape of an amphitheatre, Poros hosts a lively waterfront and is famous for its bevy of beaches, the perfect spot to sip cocktails in the calm Aegean sea along with the festive bunch of Yacht Weekers.
This small town is located on a stunning peninsula located in the centre of the Saronics, but is still part of the Greek mainland. Here, we host an awesome after-beach White Party on the waterfront with a spectacular sunset view over the surrounding islands.
In this natural bay you can anchor up with all the yachts lined up next to each other creating a tunnel raft. Ideal for listening to music, socialising and late night swimming. Enjoy dinner on board with your crew whilst yacht-hopping and embracing the company of other crews.
The beautifully sheltered bay, Porto Heli, is the home of the luxury Nikki Beach resort. With its grand swimming pool, rooftop parties, watersports and luxurious setting Nikki Beach is one of the most exciting stops on the route.
The exact routes are set a few weeks before the event starts. As soon as the routes are set, you will be able to view it on your booking.
All the yachts will depart from Lavrio marina.
We recommend to get to the marina by 3pm. Then you will have time to register with us, do the check-in with the yachting company and the food shopping before you get your yacht. The yachts will stay in the marina on Saturday night and leave on Sunday morning. You will get back to the marina on Friday afternoon and have to check out and leave the yacht before 9am on Saturday morning.
