Welcome to the Greek Sails eNewsletter

June 2012

Welcome to our first Email newsletter. We plan to send our newsletter serveral times each year and include items that we hope you’ll find helpful and interesting:

  • News & events from Poros and Greek Sails; in this issue, an introduction to our new flotilla lead crew
  • Ideas on routes and locations you can visit; in this issue, our two-week eastern Peloponnese flotilla route and our new ‘location photo-albums’
  • Details of any special offers or events we may be organising
...and we hope a good deal more, but better not to let all the secrets out in this first introduction.

We hope you enjoy this, our first edition, and that you will wish to receive more news from Poros; we have a lot of changes to tell you about.

With best wishes from

Greek Sails added three new yachts to the fleet this year, joining the five yachts added last year

Our big news for this summer is the addition of three new yachts to the fleet. These are a new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 409 and two Sun Odyssey 33i yachts. These join the new 409 and 439 we added to the fleet last spring, not forgetting the addition of three other yachts last year; a Beneteau Oceanis 43, an Elan Impression 434 and a Bavaria 50 Cruiser.

The three new yachts were sailed from Antibes to Poros and you can read about and watch videos of their trip on our website.

Greek Sails welcome to a new flotilla lead crew to Poros

Georgia and James have joined Greek Sails as a new flotilla lead crew. They are an experienced sailing couple from the UK; James is a Yachtmaster & qualified engineer and Georgia is both first aid qualified and has many years’ experience in catering and customer service. Between them they are sure to ensure your flotilla holiday goes smoothly.

We're pleased to welcome Georgia & James to the Greek Sails team

Our other flotilla news is that we now offer a two week flotilla route that cruises the eastern Peloponnese. This gives more time to visit some wonderful locations like Monemvassia and Yerakas? Never visited these places? Well you can see and learn more about them through our location photograph albums.

What's life really like in Greece at the moment?

The quayside at Poros and Dimitri's taverna...flotilla planning HQ! You only need to glance at the news to see all kinds of uninviting news about Greece; so what’s life really like at the moment?

Well, it might surprise you to learn that ‘real life’ carries on much as normal. The press show dramatic pictures, but if you’re not in the very centre of Athens when something is happening, you could be excused for wondering; What crisis?

So life, especially in Poros and the islands, carries on as normal, although visitor numbers seem down, although thankfully, not for Greek Sails.

So come on and visit us and find out for yourself what life is really like in Greece; and remember, you can’t believe everything you read in the press...we are not the only ones to say the view given by the media isn’t entirely accurate...
