Day of arrival
Travel organisations offer charterflights for Preveza. We recommend you to book early so there will be a lot of options. After arriving in Nidri on Lefkas island you are welcome to join us in the office of Sunny Sailing where you will be greeted by Pim Bastiaanssen and Joyce Corbée. When the yacht is ready (17.00 at the latest), you can board and will receive a short check-in. If you can board earlier we will let you know. But you can always enjoy the facilities of Hotel Armonia, which is located on the other side of the jetty.
Weather in Greece
The weather in Greece is perfect for sailing. The sun shines brightly and it usually blows at wind force 4 (not always). A question we receive often is how the weather is in a certain week from a certain month, but unfortunately we can not answer that. The weather changes strongly trough out whole of Europe and we can only speak for a few years of experience, that’s not statistical! However it’s a fact that in normal conditions the wind starts to blow around the afternoon, in the morning it’s usually more calm.
Below is an indication of weather circumstances per month to give you an idea.

Our sailing yachts
We sail different types of Bavaria yachts, measuring from 31 to 42 foot. The yachts are luxuriously equipped and of course have a shower (inside and outside), a bimini to cover from the sun, a cooling unit, furling mainsail, furling genoa, GPS, VHF, speed and depth gauges, autopilot and a dinghy with outboard motor (optional). Besides our own boats we can offer (larger) yachts from third party companies.
Equipment sailing yachts
All yachts are completely furnished and provided; see our equipment list. (Child-)lifejackets are on board by default but we have them in all sizes. Ask for the right size on arrival. We don’t supply snorkelgear because we don’t think it’s hygienic. An option is to bring it with you or buy some on location.
It is often asked if we’ll go out on route 1, 2, North or South, but the flotilla leaders always keeps the right to change the designated route. This may have to do for example with the weather. All mentioned routes are just an example.
