AEGEAN FLOTILLA 2024
Aegean Flotilla 2024, about the school.
A short introduction about The Aegean Flotilla 2024 and the sailing school instructors and why their background should inspire potential student’s confidence. The school has been around since 2006, its principal is Lt. Cdr Chandler a retired Royal Naval officer. The instructors come from various European countries, Holland, Greece and Great Britain. They are all qualified instructors who make their living teaching students about sailing and sailing professionally in countries all around the world.
The school has organized various Flotillas, in Scotland where we sailed the Islands and visited Distilleries, quaint fishing harbours and breathtaking Castles. We have also run a Flotilla to the South coast of England, along the Cornish Coast.
Our 18 years of experience in Greece on the Aegean side of the country has allowed us to run Flotillas on many occasions. We have a large selection of yachts to offer, from 35 ft yachts perfect for a couple to larger 45 and 50 ft yachts suitable for larger groups or extended families.

Choose the yacht that fit's your needs..
Choosing a yacht for your flotilla adventure is relatively easy. You can do it by cabin or by the number of people in your party.
A couple may require a smaller yacht perhaps one of our 33 or 34ft yachts. They come with 2 sleeping cabins and a full galley+ saloon and a private head.
Alternatively, you may be a large group of 6 friends and require a 3-cabin yacht or maybe a 4-cabin yacht. All the yachts for the Flotilla are Jeanneau’s built after 2018.

Aegean's Flotilla Route 2024
The Aegean Flotilla 2024 route description
ARRIVAL DAY MAY 25
Crews arrive and settle onto their yachts, each yacht will be briefed as to yacht operation, safety equipment location and final paperwork for Greek Authorities. Yacht provisioning at the local supermarket. A meet and greet with drinks and small eats, an outline of the planned route, and an upcoming weather forecast.
Today’s sail is from Poros to the port of Ermioni, an ancient town that has been here since before 1500 BC, in 1300bc the village slid off the Island peninsula into the harbour during a huge earthquake.
Today the flotilla will sail to Plaka (Leonidian), the birthplace of King Leonidas. Leonidas was the Spartan king who famously led a small band of Greek allies at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BCE where the Greeks valiantly defended the pass through which the Persian king Xerxes sought to invade Greece with his massive army.
The next stop on the cruise is the town of Astros. There is still a complete castle that overlooks the Harbor built in 400 BC by the Spartans.
We depart Astros for Greece’s original capital Nafplion. The city is overlooked by a huge Fortress, the Fortress of Palamidi. You can climb up the 1000 steps to visit or take a taxi there. The ancient town and walled city have excellent shopping, art galleries and some of the best restaurants in the area.
The flotilla begins its homeward return back to Poros today, we will sail to Spetsai island anchor stern to a beach and tie off to trees. A beautiful taverna is located on the beach, where you can eat fresh fish and enjoy the beauty of this spot.
An early start today to head back to Poros, departing Spetsai Cove and heading down the Spetsai channel and up the Hydra channel will bring us back to Poros.
Crews disembark from their yachts
Food and fuel is extra and not included in the rate. A good guide as to what to expect for fuel, a 35 ft yacht will burn about 45 euros of fuel and larger 40-45ft will use about 60-65 euros. It all depends on how much you motor.
Each day expect to sail between 4-5 hours, depending on wind. Some of the distances are +20nm so at 6 knts it may take a little longer.
We offer 3 courses you can take any 1 of them and earn a certification. ASA 101, ASA 103, ASA 104. Teaching books will be sent to you before you come on the flotilla, an instructional fee would be charged of 500euro, for each course.
All our smaller yachts are easy to handle. On deck you have a furling 110% genoa, and full battened mainsail. All yachts are wheel steered. Below decks 2 cabins for sleeping one forward and one aft. A complete Galley, good sized head and comfortable salon, plus a good chart table with GPS and sailing instruments.
We would be happy to arrange for one of our instructors or Skippers to accompany you on your yacht. Unfortunately, it would be an added cost.
No, its not neccsary, the lead boat is there for your safety and to help you with docking, and any other concerns you may have during the week. You are free to sail on your own to the next port. Generally we do like to see all yachts tied up by 6-7pm.
