Sail & Stay


There are many spectacular islands in the Ionian and we encourage guests to get involved in deciding where we should visit during the week, some might prefer more vibrant towns and some might prefer more off the beaten track hideaways. As in any sailing adventure weather, especially wind will always be a factor and the skipper will always have the final say in where we visit.

Sun Graphic


From May to October, the Ionian Islands enjoy warm and pleasant weather, with temperatures ranging from the mid-20s to mid-30s degrees Celsius (mid-70s to mid-90s degrees Fahrenheit). Visitors can expect ample sunshine and a low chance of rainfall. Winds are generally lighter but increase in the afternoon, especially between the bigger islands where you can expect good sailing conditions during most of summer.
