Arrival

When sailing in the Ionian with Scorpios Sailing the best point of arrival is Preveza Airport. This is just a short taxi ride (20 mins) to Lefkada and your yacht. Your crew will be waiting to help you aboard. If your travel plans have you arriving elsewhere in Greece we can advise you, book taxis, bus tickets or arrange car hire on your behalf.

Once on board, you will have plenty of time to settle in to your accommodation prior to the “Welcome Briefing”. This is when we tell you all about the yacht, its safety features, and details about life onboard. In addition, we have lots of information about some of the great places that we will be visiting in the week. Following the briefing, depending on your time of arrival, we may sail to an attractive village port. Wherever we are, you will have the opportunity to explore and get dinner ashore.

A Typical Day

A typical day on board begins with a leisurely breakfast. Over coffee we plan our route and decide which of the many delightful ports will be our destination for later on in the day. The crew are very well-informed regarding local, historical and cultural points of interest, so you can ask as many questions as you like.

The morning continues with a sail to a secluded bay where we will anchor to swim, snorkel or try out our kayak. You can relax or take the dinghy ashore to explore deserted beaches and islands.

Lunch in the cockpit

The crew will expertly moor the yacht, and this will mark the time to relax and take "Sundowners" (cocktails served in the cockpit) as we reflect on highlights of the day's sailing. Later on, you will step ashore to explore the village harbour and choose a taverna or restaurant for dinner.

For information on what to bring with you, see our packing hints.

Lunch will be served on board and consists of a variety of dishes prepared from fresh, local produce. See our menu page for details of the delicious food you can expect to enjoy on board our yachts.

Later in the afternoon, when the Ionian breezes freshen, you will experience the natural performance of the yacht when the wind alone drives us towards the evening's port of call.
