nickos Markou, skipper for Scorpios Sailing

Nikos Markou

Nikos is from Athens and has been involved with charter yachts for more than 30 years. He is a highly qualified yacht skipper, who knows not only the Ionian Islands, but all the Islands of Greece, having sailed tens of thousands of miles around them.

Nikos is very proud to be Greek. He is very knowledgeable and delighted to answer questions about his Hellenic culture and its history. After service in the Greek army, Nikos went to university and qualified as a pharmacist. However his love for sailing took him down a different career path, eventually operating several charter-yachts of his own.

He is a most adept fisherman and loves to fish from the yacht, often catching tuna and other delicacies for lunch.

Les Jones

Les has been a professional skipper in Greece for the last 5 years. As a commercially endorsed RYA/MCA Yachtmaster and Cruising Instructor, Les has logged thousands of miles sailing around Western Greece.

Les was a Detective Chief Inspector in the Metropolitan Police. He and his wife regularly sailed their own, immaculate, Sadler 35ft yacht in the English Channel before deciding to base themselves in the Ionian.

Sailing with Les is like having your own personal tour guide onboard. He is very knowledgeable and always happy to pass on information about these fascinating islands.
