Anchors Aweigh!

Can‘t wait? Here‘s a brief description of the suggested route and of planned stop-overs to wet your appetite. But as with all things SevenSails, where you choose to drop anchor and which activities you take part in is entirely up to you. A week with SevenSails is what you make it: magical sunsets, regattas, historical sights, deserted beaches, fun and parties – just name it, it’s all there. So let‘s set sail!

DAY 1 – Alimos – Aegina

Sailing into a Mediterranean sunset you’ll head towards the beautiful island of Aegina, just a short distance away. Known as the ‘pistachio island’, the yachts drop anchor here for the first night. Enjoy a drink on deck before joining us at the SevenSails opening-night party – a great chance to get to know the people on the other yachts and make new friends. Alternatively enjoy a good meal at a local restaurant and maybe a night-cap at the bar.

DAY 2 – Aegina - Hydra

Spend the morning strolling through the quaint town of Aegina or exploring the near-by island of Angistri, before heading to the next port of call. Not quite Treasure Island, Hydra is nevertheless an island where donkeys replace cars, many restaurants grow their own vegetables in the back yard and you will definitely experience a different pace of life. Enjoy a beach party and barbecue after which SevenSails invites you to an energised evening of buccaneering bliss at Hydra’s notorious ‘Pirate Bar’. Rumour has it that Mick Jagger used to call this bar his retreat – read into that what you will.

DAY 3 – Hydra – Spetses

Spetses is a lush, green island covered in pine trees and lined with long, lingering bays. En- route to Spetses lies the small uninhabited island of Dhokos. An Aegean gem with a little-known bay on its northern side; perfect for kicking back and relaxing. Time has a tendency to stop here, so don’t be surprised if you don’t make it to Spetses. For the more energetic amongst you, Spetses boasts an equally dynamic night-life. The choice, as always, is yours.

DAY 4 – Spetses – Ermioni

Ermioni is a small town with a big history. Making its debut in Homer’s Iliad, legend also has it that the famous 300 Spartans departed from here to fight the Persians. Located on the east of the Peloponnese, these days it is mostly untouched by tourism, with beautiful sandy beaches complimented by quiet bars and restaurants.

On your way here you can test your sailing skills and have some exhilarating, action-packed fun in the SevenSails regatta. The day is rounded off nicely with a delicious barbecue, cold drinks and chilled beats. Oh, and a fantastic prize for the winner – but that’s a surprise so don’t tell anyone.

DAY 5 – Ermioni - Poros

Hydra’s little sister, Poros is a fascinating island that is authentic and unspoilt. Pine forests and olive groves stretch right down to the beaches. Excellent restaurants and a lively night-life are also on the cards. The harbour is large enough for all the yachts to anchor, making it a good place to re-stock if you need to. SevenSails arranges a slap-up dinner right in the middle of the harbour’s esplanade. Not to mention the bar upstairs and a DJ banging out the beats on the rooftop terrace till the sun comes up. So how about it? ,Do a little dance, make a little love and get down tonight!‘

DAY 6 – Poros – Perdika

A smooth day’s sailing will take you to your final stop-over just opposite Perdika. The quaint little fishing village is located on a peninsula, surrounded by beautiful beaches and sheltered by the island of Moni. It’s the ideal location for the SevenSails Burnin’ Up party – a small restaurant on the beach with nothing but great food and great music. Or grab some calm a little further down the beach and listen to the sound of the waves as they gently lap at your feet.

DAY 7 – Perdika – Alimos

The final leg of your voyage takes you back to the Alimos marina. It’s a great day’s sailing at a leisurely pace – or maybe a last regatta? On reaching Alimos the yachts will still be your home for a fun-filled night. Come nightfall, SevenSails hijacks the nearby restaurant turning it into a private bar for the final party. A great chance to bid your skippers farewell and to make sure you have the phone numbers of all the new friends you’ve made.
