DAY 1: check-in
Check-in will take place at the Lefkas Marina starting at 16:00 on Saturdays. The staff will wait for you at the BeBlue meeting point in the Marina to assist and accompany you in the simple and fast boarding procedures. After the boarding procedures and the galley, we will set sail at sunset and spend the night in one of the bays in the area.
After an excellent breakfast facing the sea, the fleet is ready to leave for the island of Kastos. We will stop in one of the many bays where you can dive into the turquoise waters: place of the first anchorage and the first meetings in the water of the BeFree flotilla! Refreshed by the first swim, after lunch we will sail towards one of the bays near the island's marina, where we will go ashore to then be enchanted by the sunset in the setting of the Kastos Mill. We will enjoy an aperitif together before returning to the boat and having dinner under the stars.
Sailing north! We will reach Asprogiali beach on the northern tip of the island of Kalamos, where we will anchor to refresh ourselves before having lunch together on board. In the afternoon we will sail towards the port of Kalamos where we will go ashore to have dinner in a typical Greek tavern.
This morning we go upwind! Breakfast and regenerating swim before heading to Atokos: it seems to have arrived in the Bahamas! With its crystal clear waters and picturesque beaches this island offers a unique experience, in fact if we are lucky we will meet some of its particular inhabitants, the very kind piglets who love to cool off in the island's waters. We will placidly arrive in the bay of Pera Pigadi on the island of Ithaca, where at sunset we will project a film on the mainsail of the boat.
Awakening and breakfast with Greek yoghurt and honey, on the mainsail and bow towards one of the idyllic beaches of the north east coast of Ithaca. We will then continue towards Fiskardo where we will go ashore to visit the colorful village and have dinner. For the evening, total white dress code!
In the morning we will leave the moorings from Fiskardo and sail until we dive into the crystalline waters of Gidaki, a heavenly beach. After moments of relaxation and regenerating swims, we will continue the journey towards Filiatro beach. Here we will moor as a package to have a last aperitif in the middle of the sea and have dinner all together.
Sailing to Thilia we will explore its crystal clear waters and secluded bays, while on the boat we will enjoy a delicious lunch prepared on board. We will return to Lefkas Marina where you will have the freedom to explore the local clubs and discos. This will be the last night on board and you will be able to fully experience the lively and fun atmosphere that Lefkas village has to offer with its buzzing waterfront.

DAY 1: check-in
Check-in, at Lefkas Marina, available from 16:00 on Saturday. The staff will be waiting for you at the BeBlue meeting point in the Marina to assist you and accompany you in the simple and quick boarding procedures. After the quick boarding procedures and the galley, you can decide whether to set sail at sunset or if, a few steps from the BeBlue boats, reach the Pool & Bar for a welcome drink.
Departure: route to Meganissi, this time however we will enter the bay of Abelake, protected and silent, perfect for the first meeting between the boats of the flotilla. The day will continue with a short navigation, wind in the sails, towards the enchanted and unspoiled Atokos, the perfect setting for the first night in a package!
After breakfast: route to the south of the island of Itaka to explore the white beaches that characterize this part of the island and relax under the stars. The night is approaching… the BeBlue Skippers will sail into the night making you live the magical experience of night sailing to Zakynthos… blown by the wind in the magic of the starry vault.
An awakening, or for the most hungry of sailing an arrival, in the beautiful setting of the Blue Cave of Zakynthos for a cool energizing bath, ready to visit the beach of the wreck (If the beach is closed to the public it will proceed to visit an adjacent bay. Update 15.06.2023: the ordinance restricting access to the bay will remain in force for summer 2023), inevitable stop for photos of ritual! The night will be a surprise, immersed in the peace of the white cliffs that make the sea below shine with blue and crystal.
Heading north, it's time to pick up the wind a bit and have fun upwind towards Itaka higher and higher until you reach Vathi, ready to welcome us joyfully with the colorful restaurants and bars that are ideal for celebrating Ferragosto properly. Ok, it's a BeFree flotilla but we don't want to miss out on music, right?!?
The sun illuminates the fleet and the scent of coffee knocks on the cabin door: today we are heading to Kalamos in a fleet regatta with tacks and beats to reach the quiet of the island village where George will welcome us in the picturesque setting of his tavern . The right place to enjoy a good cocktail in the peace of the narrow streets of the island and admire the moon from the cliff in a true Greek atmosphere.
Wake up and breakfast with honey and fresh fruit for a day dedicated to relaxation, a few miles separate us from Agios Nikolaos where we will spend an afternoon among the lush beaches and the blue of the crystal clear sea. In the late afternoon the sails are hoisted for the return to Lefkada, ready to welcome us in the comfort of the streets of the center for the last greetings over a good glass of uozo!
