The 2021 Season has started!

16th May 2021 marked the start of our 2021 sailing season


The season has finally started, and we currently have 2 yachts out enjoying the Ionian this week – a bareboat charter exploring the best of the islands and an RYA training course with 3 students on board learning to sail, and what better place to learn than here!

The weather is superb – mid to late twenties, perfect afternoon breezes and the sea is warming up too. Summer is here… 🙂

Update on the Current Situation (18/5/21)

The tourist season officially started on 15 May.

Greece is currently on the UK’s amber list which means that before you return to the UK, you’ll need to take a covid-19 test, book and pay for day 2 and day 8 covid-19 tests and complete a passenger locator form. On arrival, you’ll need to quarantine for 10 days at home which can be shortened to 5 days if you pay for a private Covid-19 test – UK Gov website

Cases here on Lefkada and on the islands are low (most days zero) and the vaccination program continues. Meganisi, Kalamos & Kastos have been fully vaccinated and by the end of June, every adult on Lefkada will have been offered the vaccination.

New regulations regarding the movement between islands state that you must perform a rapid test on arrival BEFORE embarking the yacht. If you do not have a vaccination certificate, you may also need to perform rapid tests between the islands. We suggest bringing a supply of rapid tests with you as the pharmacies here tend to be closed on a Sunday.

A Health Declaration Form must be completed and returned to Sail Ionian – Official Movement between islands Preboarding health questionnaire ANNEX 1

The Greek Passenger Locator Form must be filled in at least 24 hours prior to your flight – online here – with arrivals subject to random testing.

Restaurants, cafes, bars and shops are open.

There is a curfew from 00:30 until 05:00.

Masks must be worn in all indoor and outdoor public places.

The sun is shining, the boats are ready and we are looking forward to your arrival! 😀
