The Cyclades Islands sailing itineraries
Sailing the best of classical Greece

A group of islands lying in the middle of the Aegean Sea that form an imaginary circle around the island of Delos. The Cyclades are distinguished worldwide for their rough elemental landscape, white washed houses and windmills, narrow paths full of flowers, brilliant blue sea and most recently their never ending nightlife.

Wind and Sailing Conditions
The prevailing wind in the summer is the “Meltemi”, blowing from the North, begins in June, blows stronger in July and August at Force 5-6 and may occasionally reach Force 9. During spring and autumn, you may also be facing winds blowing from the South. It is advised that for short charters (7 days) the charterer should be aware in advance of the prevailing weather conditions, since local winds in summer can reach the Force of 8-9 and last for more than a couple of days.

Travel Notes
You can start your route from our bases in Athens, Alimos Marina, or Lavrion (Main Port).
