New Jeanneau 349 yaht joins the Greek Sails fleet

The new Jeanneau 349 3-cabin yacht Jeanneau have recently launched the new 349 cruising yacht and we’re pleased to have one of the first of this new yacht to arrive in Greece. She will be available for charter from June onwards.

The 349 follows the interior design of the other new generation ‘xx9’ Sun Odyssey yachts (379, 409, 439, 469 & 509) and provides a light and comfortable interior. She will be our shortest 3-cabin yacht, but due to design, more like a 35 or 36i in terms of space.

Book early & sail out of season

Spring in Poros With this being the 1st February, bookings for the coming season are already well underway. With the general economic situation looking better, the airlines seem to be raising prices and so our advice is to book early to secure a cheaper ticket and consider sailing out of the peak summer months.

Spring sailing in Greece is a different experience to the summer as the countryside is much greener and the spring flowers are in bloom.

You could also join us for Greek Easter which is a large celebration in the Greek Orthodox church and more like the Christmas celebrations in north western Europe.

We have assembled links to a number of flight search websites, so maybe check out fares now...and the page is useful for finding flights to anywhere, so maybe bookmark the page to help you with other trips.

Benediction of the Waters

Benediction of the Waters, Poros, January 2014 An old custom in Greece is the ‘Blessing of the Waters’ on the 6th January.

This tradition was to ward off any bad spirits and following the blessing, the locals would sprinkle the blessed water on their homes, animals and even each other!

This January was no different, and as in previous years, each of the Greek Sails yachts was also blessed, thereby assuring you of plain sailing and no ‘bad spirits’ during your holiday. You see, we try to think of everything!
