Greece is back at the top of the list as a yachting destination after a record breaking summer of charter holidays in 2015. So, it is a great time to learn to sail Greece!

We are based in Corfu, one of the Ionian Islands.

To those who visualise a Greece of sunbaked rock dotted with dazzling whitewashed houses, the Ionian comes as a gentle surprise. This is not the Greece of the popular travel brochure but a shaded green country, sheltering red tiled Latin houses, an eccentric collection of Italian and French architecture and English tastes (in Corfu the locals play cricket and you can buy currant buns and ginger beer) welded together into a whole that is indubitably Greek.

Ever-green cypress, pine, elm, green fields, flowers even in height of summer, and everywhere the dull dark sheen of the olive, characterize the lower land while higher up the slopes are covered in pine and the tenacious Mediterranean maquis. If the wind is in the right direction you can smell the pungent herby aroma a mile out to sea. The green luxuriance of the islands is in direct contrast to the high eroded mountains of Albania and mainland Greece that form the eastern boundary to the Ionian.

The islands have been inhabited since prehistoric times and have since been occupied by an ever changing diversity of peoples. Homer, writer of The Iliad and The Odyssey, was born on the island of Ithaca. Later the islands belonged to the Kingdom of Macedonia, and then subsequently to the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians, the French and the British.
