Sami and Lefkas are not very far apart. Lefkas has more places to visit nearby. The inland sea is easy sailing. Meganisi is a great island to visit. Some of the places to moor are Nidri, Palairos, Vathy, Spartakhori, Sivota,Kalamos. There are even more little coves you can anchor
in. Sami is a little more out of the way from the tourist areas but you can visit Eufimia, Fiskardo, a different Vathy, Frikes as well as Syvota and Kalamos.you can also go north from Lefkas or south from Sami but for a one week charter
you might be doing a few long hauls (25 miles). The prevailing wind
is NW. It picks up in the afternoon and quiet ends at 8. If you want to get a mooring
at a quay, you might need to get in earlier. For a first charter
in the Ionian
, I'd go out of Lefkas; it's a bit of a nursery patch.
