Sailing guide to the Ionian

Ionian sailing guide

Although usually more difficult to reach than the main airport of Greece - Athens airport - sailing holidays out of Lefkas, near the Preveza airport is worth the extra trouble of locating direct flights or travelling via domestic flights from Athens to Preveza in the Ionian.

Advantage Ionian over Saronic/Argolic/Cyclades

Drawback Ionian over Saronic/Argolic/Cyclades

Avoiding the flotillas can be difficult but it helps to sail a good distance the first day (often Sunday) and it is really helpful therefore to start on a Saturday. Usually the assisted bareboat and flotilla fleets will remain in the area between Lefkas, Meganisi and Kefalonia / Ithaka.
Also note that the region of the southern Ionian even further south is extremely attractive. Usually the megayachts (mega yachts) and motoryachts or gulet motorsailers will visit only briefly. More information on my yacht charters guide.
