We are looking for team members for sailing vacations in one of the best places in the world: the Greek islands. Mild climate, sun shining all summer, calm sea, all this make Greek islands attractive for those who like sailing as we do.
Beside sailing experience we are going to enjoy Greece history and modern life in this country.
Instead of spending your vacation somewhere in one hotel we are going to live aboard and visit several different places and have all together: active style of life, sightseeing, shopping, going out and swimming.
Where do we start
We are going to start from the Island of Samos . Our yacht is moored now in the Samos Marina, less than 20 km from international airport Samos, code SMI. You can get to us by taxi or by bus.
The boat is at the far end of the marina where big vessels usually are placed. Our team should arrive from 18.00 to 24.00 on the date before we go. The first night we arrange a welcome dinner and early in the next morning after a short briefing we’ll start our passage.
Passage plan on Greek islands
We are planning to visit the southern islands of the Aegean sea. All the islands are interesting in their own way and we are limited by time of participants only. The passage is not just for experienced sailors, so the trip will be divided into several smaller steps to make everybody feel comfortable. Night passages are possible but in general we’ll prefer to start in the morning and come to some safe place by the evening. So you’ll be able to have free time for sightseeing, going out or for making acquaintance with the real Greece, not just the country for tourists.
If we have only one week we are going to visit Agathonisi, Leros, Kalymnos, Pothia, Patmos and Lipsi. For a two-week trip we can also reach Rhodes with stops at Kos, Simi, Krevatia, Tilos, Nikia and other islands. The final route will be developed based on the actual weather, including the direction and strength of the wind.
Finally we are going to return to Samos Island in a week or two weeks after our departure.
We are not a charter boat. Our aim is to handle the yacht and travel. Our yacht Liberty Tours is bigger and more comfortable than a usual mainstream vessel. She is also much better equipped. We have grill on deck, home cinema system, everything for fishing, etc.
The vessel has an experienced skipper on board of course. But it is not just a tour. We are arranging active vacation. So everybody will be able to take part in making the passage. More than that, we expect that you’ll participate in steering, rope works, anchoring and so on. If you are going to pass yachting exams in future you’ll get a record of the trip to your personal logbook.
Nevertheless, we are not making some needed passage as a training boat. We are going to make everybody feel happy and comfortable on board. We are going slowly, with breaks for nights. So it is not a rally for professionals, we are making together a tour for all family.
From the moment you step on board everything is included and ready for you. We’ll have all needed staff to cook and to handle the boat. The tanks are filled with diesel and fresh water. We have food and drinks. But of course you and your family can have a diner out on our stops. But you are not obliged. You can spend no one cent more from the beginning of our passage to it’s finish. Nothing for fuel, food, cleaning, etc.
It is not a free trip. We are sharing our expenditures. But it is a one time and final amount to join our team for the period of one or two weeks at the very beginning of the trip.
Join the Passage
To join our passage please book in advance. We have a big yacht but we are restricted by the amount of berths. Only six comfortable spaces are available for a trip and there could not be onboard more than eight persons as an absolute maximum.
We are building a team for spending excellent time. Please be ready to bring with you good mood, sense of humor, good character and easy going life style.
We are not a charter boat. But there is no such a thing as “free lunches”. We have to service the yacht, pay for marinas, fuel, food on board, etc. So the expenditures should be shared. Please, contact us for more details.
