Corfu in November for a week with kids (teens)

Hi guys, I'll be on Corfu around 30th Oct - 4th Nov with 3 kids 11-11-13 yr old. I'll have a boat based in Gouvia Marina by then. I've got one part of our group leaving in the evening on 1st Nov so I can't venture too far.

What to expect from the weather? Is the sea still warm enough for a quick swim?

Thinking about short hop from marina to Corfu town, spending the night there under castro walls (will there be space?), but then where?? With 3 kids onboard I'd rather keep our sailing ot 3-4 hrs max at a time, with some interesting places to visit onshore.

Just looking at the map and weather stats makes me think we will just rent a car/quad and explore the island but then again we all hate staying in marinas....

Should be fine around 19C water temp. We swim up to beginning Nov in Croatia Split area temps are around 17-18 then and Corfu is about 300nm further south.
The biggest problem will be the weather, it can be rainy and windy in Oct/Nov in both places so you need a safe bolthole nearby. On the plus side it will be quiet!
