Getting There and Checking In

The Yacht Week

By The Yacht Week

Posted on 18th May 2018

Before you arrive:

Fill out crew list

We want your holiday to get off to the perfect start, so please ensure your crew list is completed 3 weeks prior to arrival. Simply log-in to your booking and add your crew following the steps given. Cabin bookers please only add the name of the friend you'll be sharing a cabin with. If you don't do this, you might not get your yacht in time.

Check-in online

Once you have completed your crew list, you can save a lot of time on site if you all check-in online. Each member of the crew must do this before arrival, which will make getting your yacht on time that much easier. 

Online check-in will open 4 months prior to departure.

Getting to Greece

Flights

Athens Airport (ATH) is the closest airport to all of our marinas. We recommend using a search engine to find the best flights:

Visas

We recommend using VisaHQ to find out if you require any visas to enter the country - www.visahq.co.uk

Getting to your marina

Athens airport to Alimos Marina

Taxi

We work with a local taxi partner offering competitive prices and quality service. They will pick you up directly from the airport and take you to TYW check-in or any destination within Athens. Pre-book your taxi via email or whatsapp. nikole4taxi@gmail.com / +30 697 172 0085

Bus

Take the X96 to Alimos Marina. Buses depart every 20-30 minutes from the airport bus stop. Make sure you alight at bus stop EDEM which is 5 minutes walk from the marina. The journey takes around 90 minutes and costs around €5 per person.

Metro

Take the Metro from the airport to Syntagma Square. From there change to the Tram Line to Alimos Marina (EDEM Stop). The Metro runs every 30 minutes. The journey takes around 60 minutes and costs around €10 per person. For more information visit www.amel.gr.

Upon arrival:

Time to arrive/depart

We recommend you arrive at Alimos Marina at 3pm to meet the TYW crew and your skipper. The exact check-in location will be confirmed at a later date. You should have access to your yacht by around 6pm.

You will get back to the marina on Friday afternoon (the exact time varies depending on weather conditions), when you will stay one last night on the yachts in the marina and will check out and leave the yacht by 9am on Saturday morning.

Onsite registration for yacht bookers and skipper

The Yacht Week staff will be ready and waiting for you at your marina where you will register and collect your TYW wristband.

Booker: Bring cash/credit card to pay the security deposit* and your passport.

Skipper: Bring your nautical certificates and passport.

* The security deposit is the maximum cost you can be charged if you damage your yacht or lose equipment. The amount can be found in your booking profile

All deposits must be paid in Euros.

Onsite registration for cabin bookers

The skipper will go to the yachting company who is in charge of your yacht. Each cabin guest should give the skipper their deposit in cash. The amount can be found in your welcome email.

Luggage at check-in

Find a safe place to leave your luggage for the day. The Yacht Week staff do not take responsibility for any lost luggage or items.

Please keep away from the yachts

You will not be able to board your yacht until it has been declared ready by the charter company. Use the time to grab a beer or do your grocery shopping.

Grocery shopping

We recommend shopping close to the marina. Most islands will have supermarkets to stock up throughout the week as well. The team onsite will be able to direct you to the nearest supermarket. 

If shopping for a whole week/crew feels overwhelming, use this shopping list as guidance, it will make sure you won't miss out on any essentials.
