Sail The Greek Islands

A lot a charter stories from hell here.
We ourselves knew already that we should avoid Sunsail and GPSC.
Also we found this private website:

http://sailingissues.com/greek.html

that has a huge amount of free info:
charts, weather and charter info online with respect to Greece
(I don''t no about any other regions).

We had a splendid holiday (except for a thunderstorm),
the best yet and it was our ninth time in the Greek isles !

Regards to all :-)

Any reason you're reviving a thread that's been dead for five years???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We had the opposite experience with GPSC!
I have chartered for years and never had a problem until GPSC in Athens.
I wrote it off an will never go back, I will only use a U.S. company from now on.

We no one need wonder any longer cos they (and the company set up apparently to replace them) went belly up in 2004.

ps - seamyst, they were a US company , registered in Pennsylvania.

Drats! Fooled again

this is about the 2nd time I've become engrossed in a thread only to have it revealed to me that it's years old! I usually try to watch for that but.....makes me laugh anyway.

Hello,

I'm new here. My name is Maggie. I'm really sorry to hear about these kind of problems it's a pity that they have ripped you I'm sure that they aren't a lot of companies that operate like that. I hope I'm allowed to post here about the company I work for. I'm a native New Yorker and a Corfiot. I work for a yacht charter company based in Corfu, Greece. I don't know if I'm allowed to post the
URL but if anyone ever needs help contact me at my personal email at maggiemakris@yahoo.com. I have a business email but I don't know if I could post it.

Okay, I get it that you are upset with GPSC. I'm trying to find out the best time to sail the Cyclades and what areas were especially interesting. How are the prices for food, marinas, etc. I will go with Moorings or Kiracoulis!

I suggest you charter end of June - early July. If you aim absolutely the Cyclades, it will be very useful to start from Syros (there is a Moorings base at Finikas on the western coast or alternatively you may find a charter at the capital Syra itself). Another hint: ask for a quote from FYLY chartering company who are very reliable and look after boats and clients (website http://www.fyly.gr/ ). Arrange for alternative itineraries so that when the meltemi (a northern gusty wind) is blowing you sail on a reaching course and not beat head to the wind!
