ABOUT YOUR SAILING COLLECTIVE JOURNEY
Your journey will be captained by the Sailing Collective, professional sailors and trained explorers. The journey is exploratory and chill, captains will layout the framework for our itinerary and we go where we want exploring along the way with outstanding sites, restaurants, and other chill spots along the day. During the evenings, we dock along a rustic Greece fishing village or anchor in an idyllic cove and chill.
The experience: Sailing Collective organize 7 day private sailing charters crewed by your very own Sailing Collective captain and chef with up to 8 of your friends or family. We have access to the largest sailing charter fleet worldwide and carefully choose the correct sailboat for your group based on consideration from your preferences and style. The Sailing Collective is an experience different than you've had before, with a rustic luxury sensibility yet not overtly curated, the Sailing Collective team sets the vibe as you build your experience exploring island to island by sea.

After everyone arrives and settles in aboard, we will dine ashore for our first outing of the journey.
We will arrive back at the marina by 6pm on day 7 and spend the last evening there on the boat. We will disembark is 9am the following morning. Your crew can help arrange taxis to your next destination.
Sailing Collective will provision your journey with local foods and produce. Cooking Aboard: Your Sailing Collective captain will facilitate the cooking daily and we will be cooking family style with a menu book to look through. We are all about participation and learning, so if you'd like to help or lead a meal or two, just ask and we'll get you involved! Collective groups may choose to dine out more times than scheduled if the group or individuals choose.

Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat.Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes such as flip flops that you can get wet if we are landing on a beach.
During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style.

Alimos Marina is one of the largest marinas in Greece with a 1000 permanent positions. The Marina is located South West of Athens 15 Km from the city center, 8 Km South of Piraeus port and 30 km from El. Venizelos International Airport. It is served by a dense transportation network of Trams, Buses and Taxis, with stations 500 meters from the Marina.
Amidst the blue of the Saronic Gulf, well protected on its own smaller gulf of Epidavros, with the scent from the valley's orange blossoms meeting the sea breeze in its picturesque and friendly port, with pine trees descending its slopes to offer their shade to its beautiful beaches, Ancient Epidavros, traditional yet modern, both tranquil and cosmopolitan, is always ready to welcome travellers whatever the season. Midway along the east coast of the Argolid district, with its houses spread out amphitheatrically from the sea inland, the little town is built on the site of the ancient city-state of Epidavros. The local church, St. Nicholas, is built on the ruins of the Temple of Hera and, nearby is the Sanctuary of Asklepios the Ancient Theatre that attracts thousands of visitors every day.
Hydra is a historically wealthy island and this is continued into modern times with it being known as a weekend getaway for Athenians and something of an artist's haven with many local art galleries showing exhibitions of well known and upcoming artists. Hydra is also known for its architecture and the main town is filled with beautiful houses. Hydra is also well known as an island with no cars or motorbikes, so enjoy the peace and quiet while you are there!
Some 18 nautical miles from Athens, Aegina is a popular first and/or last port of call for sailing charters starting and ending in Athens. A site not to miss is the impressive Temple of Aphaea built in the 5th century BC. Aegina is also famous for its fantastic pistachio nuts, the island's soil being considered perfect for their cultivation, so be sure to pick up a bag or two to take with you!
The town of Poros is built in the shape of an amphitheatre over two hills. In antiquity Poros consisted in fact of two islands, Sphería and Kalávria, but the last explosion of the Méthana volcano in 273 BC radically changed the morphology of the area. Sphería was cut off from Méthana, and in this way Póros took its present-day form. Lush pine trees vegetation, crystal clear beaches, a lively waterfront adorned with shops, cosy cafes and restaurants, a picturesque capital (it has been declared protected settlement) with grand traditional mansions and picturesque cobbled streets, as well as a wide selection of entertainment venues are the ingredients of this quiet, yet cosmopolitan, destination that attracts visitors from all age groups. Take the opportunity to stroll around the Lemon Forest, a verdant hill with more than 30,000 lemon and orange trees, located on the opposite situated coast of the Peloponnese, southeast of the town of Galatás. The boat trip will only take a few minutes. The view from the hilltop to the island of Póros is really stunning.
Along with Hydra and Poros, Spetses played a defining role in the Greek war of independence in the early 1800's. Spetses was the home of famous Greek heroine Laskarina Bouboulinas and her house has now been converted into a museum documenting her life and contibution to the independance struggle.
The Lagoon 450 has everything you could want in a cruising boat: Incredible performance under sail, wide open deck space for lounging, and an incomparable comfort in the saloon and the cabins. The wide hulls of Lagoon 450 offer comfortable cabins with larger floor space than other catamarans of the size. An airy saloon contains an open concept modern galley (kitchen) and comfortable seating all with stunning panoramic visibility of the natural beauty that you came for. The aft deck is covered by a hard top bimini so that there is always plenty of breezy shaded space for lounging when you are taking a break from the sun drenched foredeck. Up front the netted "trampoline" between the hulls is the ultimate place to enjoy this boat under sail with the sun beaming down and the water rushing below you.
