For the true sailors the Aegean and particularly the Cyclades will proof more appealing, for the daily distances are often more than 5 hours sailing between islands. The Dodecanese offers a more mixed sailing climate for bareboats charters than in the Ionian Sea or Saronic Gulf and Athens. East of the Dodecanese islands the waters are very much tugged away and protected by the string of islets and Turkish promontories, yet the western coasts of the islands are very open to the elements: high waves and winds. Fortunately, nearly all the alluring ports are on the eastern coasts. For the more advanced areas in Greece the skippered or crewed charters are advised instead of bareboats.
