Hello - Vacation in Greece ?

I am a new member. I am researching chartering a skippered sailboat for a weekend this summer on the Chesapeake. I would like to vacation in Greece and the Caribbean aboard a sailboat and I am hoping to find out if we like this first. I'd be happy for any recommendations.

Hey Matt....welcome to the forum....sounds like a good plan...If you give more details you may find some folks here that would take you sailing.
Good luck

Welcome Matt and good luck.
The plan to charter locally as a first step is really sensible. Enjoy
