With growing interest in boat charters out of Thailand and Malaysia, Sail Connection's Robert Cross chartered a catamaran in the low season, to find out for himself the nature of the weather at that time of year and how suitable it is for a sailing holiday. Here's Robert's account of the trip.
The Cyclades group of islands offers some of the best charter boat sailing on the Aegean Sea, with unforgettable experiences of Greek life in every port
The Ionian Islands stretch some 250km down the western coast of Greece from Corfu to Zakynthos. A bareboat or skippered yacht charter here in the Ionian Sea presents untold opportunities for a sailing vacation second to none.
There are so many places to go on a sailing vacation in Greek waters, that we must split the subject of our highlights package into five local regions. The Saronic Gulf is the most accessible to ports of entry, being on the doorstep of Athens.

A sailboat journey along the southern part of the Croatian coast takes in the cities of Split and Dubrovnic, with yet another group of spectacular islands to explore along the way.
