Welcome to Greece
The Saronic Archipelago is the prime yachting area in Greece. These islands are not far from Athens and are composed of Angistri, Aegina, Methana, Poros, Salamina, Spetses and Hydra – all of which have a lot to offer visitors: natural beauty, clean sandy beaches, small deserted islets to explore and, of course, excellent Grecian food!
During the Greek event you will experience a great mixture of sailing and partying in a picturesque environment with a truly international crowd. There are normally 15-25 yachts on each event making the group size perfect for this fantastic part of Greece. The Saronic Islands are far away from the main tourist spots and offers a Greece you won’t find throughout the rest of the Aegean Sea.

Hydra is a particularly special stop and has long been a hideout for famous personalities such as the Rolling Stones, Leonard Cohen and the Onassis Family – visit and you will soon understand why!
Your yacht will be waiting for you at Lavrio Marina, located south of Athens, less than an hour drive from the airport. Upon your arrival you and your friends will check in, get your boat and be ready to sail. We recommend that you arrive at the marina during the afternoon in order to have time for shopping and sort out the paperwork, leave a safety deposit and check in to your yacht.
For those who will be ready to leave early we recommend that you set sail for one of the natural bays on the west side of the peninsula. There are a few different possibilities of how you can spend your time when the sun goes down, again depending on wind and weather. We will give you all needed information upon your arrival.
Poros harbour is well sheltered between two islands. This is the largest port on the route. The town is magnificent and offers very good night life as well as shopping and culture. Mega yachts, sailing yachts and fishermen fill up the beautiful port and create a lively and fun atmosphere! In the evening everyone moves to a bar/night club together.
Ermioni is our newest addition to the Greek event with a spectacular day party inspired by the after-beach parties in Hvar, Croatia. The small town is located on a stunning peninsula located in the centre of the Saronics, which is part of the Greek mainland. From 4pm we host an event just by the waterfront with a spectacular sunset view over the surrounding islands.
The small port of Plaka is located on the Peloponnesus Peninsula. The town has a few cozy restaurants and a very nice night club. Don’t miss this evening! We promise unique Greek dining for you and your crew. The night club in town will be the place to dance and drink until sunrise.
In this natural bay you can anchor up and enjoy music and late night swimming. All the yachts will be lined up next to each other. Enjoy dinner on board whilst yacht-hopping, socialising and having lots of fun.
Simply one of the most magnificent islands in Greece! Hydra is the definition of tranquility and relaxation. Situated on a steep mountain slope in a sheltered bay; a walk up the winding roads of the town is guaranteed to offer a magnificent view. In the evening we will organise a dinner at the Sunset Restaurant followed by a party at Omilos Bar/Club. Hydra is a particularly special stop and has long been a hideout for famous personalities such as the Rolling Stones, Leonard Cohen and the Onassis Family – visit and you will soon understand why! The harbour is quite small, so make sure to get there on time – as usual.
