GREEK ISLANDS CATAMARAN SAILING TRIP

Lagoon 420 catamaran

THE CATAMARAN

The Lagoon 420 is a family friendly, spacious and fast catamaran. The amount of available and usable deck space offers plenty of room to relax and enjoy the sailing. There are four spacious and equally sized double cabins with en suite heads and showers. Wide transom steps and swim ladders make access to the dinghy or a dip in the sea, very easy.
 
The vessel can take up to 8 guests + the skipper
   

LIFE ON BOARD

No sailing experience is required. While enjoying sea and sun, you are involved in all tasks of everyday life at sea, up to handling the yacht itself if you so wish. Some hoist, lower or flake the sails (daily workout!), others steer (if they wish, since we have autopilots) shop or cook. Chores are equally shared among everyone (dish washing, sorting the galley). Like everything else onboard, appropriateness is the rule!
The day starts with breakfast and some grocery shopping prior taking off. We sail 2 to 4 hours stopping where possible for a swim (we carry snorkeling gear) and for a light lunch. We arrive at our daily destination around 15:00, leaving plenty of time for relaxing or exploring.
   

WHO DOES COME ON
 Archipel's TRIPS?

Couples, small groups of friends, families, single travellers. We're usually able to make enough personal contact with each of our guests to have a clear picture of how to match them with a team they'll find compatible. Because of the vacation mode, style and cost, all our customers are reasonnably fit, they enjoy open air activities, understand the meaning of propriety on board a sailing yacht and finally end up having a lot in common! Furthermore the fact that they embark in such a shared boat vacation more than implies they are willing to be flexible (within reason) and have the greatest fun. We have been involved in this kind of cruises for over 10 years now, some of our guests became friends for life while actually few people got married!
   

THE KITTY

Our cabin charters run a common kitty. Payable upon boarding, it covers all shared expenses such as breakfasts and lunches onboard, dinners ashore, water, fuel, port dues, skipper's meals..
 
The skipper acts as the bookkeeper keeping all receipts etc. It works well and everyone is always happy with it.
The only 'extra' money you will spend is really only on souvenirs and any drinks when sightseeing away from the group.

  • Do we have a say in the itinerary?
  • An sailing itinerary in the Greek islands is always a compromise between sightseing wishes, life-style, weather constraints and how much sailing you wish to do. The ideal strategy for a week's sailing tour is to reach the most distant point on the third day. On first day, together with your captain with the week's windforecast in hand, you will finalize the itinerary.

     
  • Is there air conditioning?
  • Yes, there is full air conditionning in the vessel.
