The great thing about our assisted sailing school is that you really can turn it into a sailing holiday with your family and friends present. Our assisted skippers don’t stay on board overnight, but teach and guide you during the day. You will moor in a quaint harbour of the Ionian Islands, then eat and drink in a Taverna where the locals are most welcoming. Alternatively you can moor for the night in a bay and then next day we will bring our skipper back out there to continue with your sailing schooling. 

Our skippers are well trained competent, friendly and flexible. They are here to make your Ionian sailing holiday a success.
