This trip is run by our friends at Summer Sail Week, we’ll take your booking, they’ll run your trip.
You and your friends stay on a crewed boat for a week cruising the islands of Croatia or Greece, along with a fleet of boats filled with others just like you. Your boat comes fully equipped with skipper to sail it for you, multiple bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, a lounge, kitchen, big outdoor area, a diving platform and best of all – the worlds biggest swimming pool!
You do NOT need to know how to sail, you needn’t even have been on a boat before. Our staff will take care of you and do all the work! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday of your life!
When in Rome, right? Croatia and Greece are wonderful sailing destinations with enough wind to get you around, but not enough to get you in trouble. The sailing legs are not needlessly long (you don’t have to struggle for hours to get anywhere), but there is plenty of scope for you sailors among you to ‘stretch your legs’ and have a bit of fun.
For those of you not neccessarily down with sailing, you can sunbath up on deck, make a swing from your yacht into the sea, get dragged along behind the yacht, or hey, you can even take your time, chill out in an idyllic harbour, and then motorsail to catch up with others later.
The bottom line is that nothing is dictated to you, you do what you want, when you want. You da BOSS!

Day 1 – Gouvia Marina
Gouvia marina is just 15 minutes from the historical old town of Corfu, Gouvia marina is a modern marina with excellent facilities located on the east of the island just north of Corfu Town. The perfect place to start and finish your Summer Sail Week holiday.
You’ll be able to check in at 2pm, drop off your bags and use the afternoon to do a supermarket shop in local village. Your boat should be ready to board at 4pm and, having met the SSW crew and members of the other yachts, you’ll spend the first night at your base where the bars and clubs provide the perfect start to the week.
Day 2 – Sivota
Summer Sail Week will welcome you to Greece in style with an epic party on one of our favourite Ionian stops. We’ll raft up on our own private quay, make full use of the waterpark before the sun sets and the party gets into full swing in our very own night club.
We’ll set off around 11am from Gouvia on the first morning and enjoy a gentle sail towards the mainland coast. After an hour or two we’ll drop anchor in a crystal clear blue water bay where you can swim, enjoy lunch and relax, before lifting up the anchor and sailing towards our first port of call.
Day 3 – Lakka (Paxos Island)
Quite simply one of the most picturesque islands in Greece, Paxos has some stunning, crystal clear blue water bays. Lakka, on the north of the island is the jewel in the crown, and we’ll build a raft in the bay to make the most of the stunning swimming.
Ashore there is a small, sleepy village that comes alive in the evening with some great traditional Greek tavernas opening in the square for a traditional Greek evening. Once the sun goes down, Romanticas cocktail bar provides the perfect setting for an epic night out, serving classic cocktails along with a surprising firey number!
Day 4 – Parga
A large town on the mainland coast of Greece, Parga has a huge repertoire of bars, clubs and restaurants, making it the prefect destination for a big night out on the town Summer Sail Week style! We moor the yachts on the beach and take a water taxi around to the town in the evening, or walk along the beach for a touch of sightseeing at the old fortress.
Those arriving early can make the most of the gorgeous sandy beach, go on the ringos, wake boarding or parasailing from the beach or simply kick back and relax at the Tango Club. The town itself has many shops and a fantastic ambience with narrow cobbled streets leading up the hill away from the busy waterfront.
Day 5 – Gaios (Paxos Island)
The largest town on the island of Paxos, Gaios offers mooring along a long, thin creek between the main island and a small one opposite. Enjoy a delicious Greek meal, and perhaps some traditional Greek Dancing and one of our favourite restaurants in Greece, perched on the end of the harbour with delightful views of the stunning little village.
For those keen to kick on after dinner the Yacht Bar offers great prices on drinks and an even better view of the harbour from its position right on the waterfront. And for those really looking to let their hair down, a nightclub on the backstreets of Gaios will keep cranking the tunes until the last people leave!
Day 6 – Iggy Creek
On our new Greece route, we’ve left the very best stop for last! Our very own beach, a huge bonfire, watersports, music until dawn and an epic Summer Sail Week closing party. Iggy Creek lies on the mainland coast and is pretty much unreachable by land. We reserve the only pontoon and tie up for one final night under the stars.
Ringos, wakeboarding, parasailing and banana boats are all options for those feeling adventurous, and the beach is perfect for thse wishing to chill. The BBQ will be lit before dark, and the when the sun goes down the music is turned up as we party the night away on this gorgeous sandy beach.
Day 1 – Trogir – Our Base
The picturesque town of Trogir acts as Summer Sail Weeks summer base. The unique town sits on an island connected by bridge to the mainland. Three marinas surround the town, and your welcome pack will provide instructions on where you check in.
You’ll be able to check in at 2pm, drop off your bags and use the afternoon to do a supermarket shop and explore Trogir town. Your boat should be ready to board at 4pm and, having checked in and bought provisions for the yacht you’ll spend the first night at your base where the bars and clubs provide the perfect start to the week.
Day 2 – Stomorska
A beach bar perched at the edge of the bay provides the perfect setting for an epic party on your first night on the islands. The drinks will be flowing, the music blaring and as the sun begins to set on your first day you can get to know all of your fellow sailors.
We’ll set off around 11am from Trogir on the first morning and enjoy a gentle sail towards Solta island. After an hour or two we’ll drop anchor in a crystal clear blue water bay where you can swim, enjoy lunch and relax, before lifting up the anchor and sailing towards our first port of call.
Day 3 – Stari Grad
The oldest town in Croatia, a long, narrow, deep water bay offers ample protection for yachts and the perfect setting for your next night with Summer Sail Week. The historic old town hides numerous restaurants and bars so it’s well worth exploring away from the quay.
The sail from Stormoska takes us through the ‘Split Gates’ and out into slightly more open water between the islands of Brac and Hvar. Bays line the coastline of both islands, offering ample opportnuities to drop anchor for a swim and lunch stop before heading to moor in the late afternoon.
Day 4 – Hvar
The party capital of Europe! Explore this fascinating historic town before getting dressed up for a huge night on the town. Bars surround the harbour and as the night goes on the party heads to the surrounding islands where the night clubs pump out the tunes until the sun begins to rise!
The morning after a night in Hvar never gets off to the quickest start! After a late breakfast we’ll make our way over to a bay on the Pakleni Islands to call off with a swim and relax in this most stunning of settings, before setting sail towards our next destination.
Day 5 – Vis
A stunning island only recently opened to the public after many years used solely as a military base. The harbour is split into two sides – Kut on the left as you enter and Vis to your right. Both are well worth a look, and the walk between the two along the waterfront is delightful.
Those feeling more adventurous can hire scooters and explore the island, visiting Komiza on the West coast and some stunning beaches right around the coast. As the island is a long way from the coast, tourists are few and far between, so a deserted beach is well within reach!
Day 6 – Bol
Lesser known than its neighbour Hvar, Brac island is home to some stunning Croatian harbours and Bol is certainly the pick of the bunch. Arrive early for a relaxing day on the beach or perhaps an active afternoon of water sports on the beach!
In the evening the town comes alive and you can enjoy cocktails on the quay in this picturesque party town as the sun goes do. As the night progresses the party heads to the beach clubs where the music gets louder and the party doesn’t end until the last one leaves!
