Hi everybody... hope someone can give advice to some Mediterranean
We are 12 couples (ager range 45 to 58) that will be renting
3 catamarans and have one week to Bareboat
sail the Med. We prefer the area Greece/Turkey/Croatia (any of those areas). After that we will enjoy one week stay on some Island/mainland town just to relax. We are at the infant stages of the planning and complete rookies about the area. We suppose the first thing to sort out is where to sail. From the research
we have done (on the Moorings.com website) it looks like there are a few kind of standard/popular sailing areas:
1. Gocek, Turkey
2. Orhaniye, Turkey
3. Agana, Croatia
4. Dubrovnik, Croatia
5. Athens, Greece
6. Kos, Greece
7. Lefkas, Greece
Now our question: If you only had one week in your life to go sail in the Med areas Greece/Croatia/Turkey, where would it be? We know it depends on what one wants and what one enjoy. So here is our preferences...
1. We do not want to sail for 8 hours a day to get to our destinations... well not all 7 days
Shorter trips and visits to the islands or mainland towns suits us best
2. We love to see beautiful areas, spend time on white sandy beaches, have sunny weather
and swim in warm sea water
(after all we are Canadians
3. We love to snorkel and Scuba
(catch and release - not deep sea trawling stuff... just relaxing fishing)
4. We enjoy eating ashore and although we are not into disco's and techno music
, we love good music
, dancing and romantic atmospheres.
6. We are not millionaires
Where do you suggest we sail for our 7 days?
Is there someone out there that wants to suggest where to sail and enjoy a week of relaxation after the sail trip?
Your suggestions would really help these bunch of rookies plan better and enjoy their once in a lifetime holiday.
