As I am new to the forum I have been kindly directed to the navigation
section - assured that within I would find a great deal of expertise! I have already had a most helpful answer to the below questions from swagman but it never hurts to get more opinions
I am currently looking at buying
a yacht in Lefkada, Greece
and sailing it through the Greek Islands
(via the Corinthian Canal) to Kusudasi in Turkey
The problem is that unfortunately I am subject to the 90-day Shengen tourist visa term limits, of which I have already used 4 weeks.
In light of this, I am hoping to get some indication of a reasonable time frame with which to exit the Ionian
, traverse the Aegean and arrive in Turkey
. An ideal timeframe would make allowances for the possibility of having to bunker down for a few days at a time to ride out any serious weather
, as well as perhaps a day or two in any ports
of interest. I am not really keen to push into heavy weather
if it can be avoided.
My level of experience is moderate; I have owned and sailed yachts for a few years now, but never in the Med.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Routes, timeframes, places of interest, etc. Many thanks.
