The Moorings are offering charters for a minimum of seven days from 1 April to 30 September in Greece. Bookings must be made by 2 January 2018.

Sailing in Corfu on a luxury Moorings yacht is one of the most sublime holidays. Book a crewed charter and let them do the work whilst you visit the Ionian Islands, arguably the most beautiful in Greece. The seven main islands of the archipelago reflect histories and fables, white-washed churches and monasteries and authentic cuisine such as cod pie, tomato balls, savóro fish (fish fillet fried in vinegar, raisins, rosemary and garlic) and, as a desert, rovaní (ground rice with honey).

Ithaca, one of the most fabled islands offers hiking, mountain bike trails in a sequence of blue and green alongside the coast and through olive, cypress, pine, oak, arbutus and carob trees upon the hills. For those who like water sports, there’s scuba diving the Cave of the Nymph where legend has it that Odysseus has hidden gifts he had brought from the land of the Phonecians.

Beaches galore from sand to pebbles, rocky to green backgrounds and secluded to popular abound on the island including: Lootsa, Filiatró, Sarakínniko, Dexá, Minnímata, Yidáki, Aetós, Áspros Yalós, Afáles, Kourvoólia.

After you’ve dropped anchor visit the villages such as Perahóri: A gorgeous scenic village situated at the edge of the Afentikós Lógos forest, a perfect starting point for walks by medieval ruins in the oaks; Stavrós: host to an Archaeological Museum, known for the clay mask of the 1st century A.C. writing “ΕΥΧΗΝ ΟΔΥΣΣΕΙ” – “a wish for Odysseus” in Ancient Greek and Anoyí: home of the upright stones of the area (menhirs) the tallest of which is eight metres.

Ithaca is just one stop on your Corfu holiday. The cruising season lasts from April to November with northwest winds from 10 to 15 knots. The tidal range is just one to two feet and therefore tidal currents are practically non-existent, except in the sea level Lefkas Canal (no locks), where currents are noticeable. A Corfu yacht charter is well within the reach of sailors who have basic skills in coastal navigation. Average temperatures during the cruising season range between 76°F and 82°F (24°C to 28°C).

Discover Greece with the Moorings from the lively tavernas to snug harbors and intriguing archaeological sites.

Charters start from $AUD2773 for two passengers for seven nights on a Moorings 3900 three cabin catamaran (including a saving of $217)
