Planning sailing vacation in Greece. We''re not particularly experienced sailors--have sailed a lot but as passengers and go-do''s. Just know that this would be the best way to see Greece/islands. Probably flotilla/berth charter. You apparently recommend Olympic Charters. I''ve looked at their website and it''s impressive. But since anybody can design an impressive website, it''s good to know that somebody has actually used the company and recommend them. Any more info about them you''d like to share or companies you''d not recommend? GPSC is the only company I''ve talked to but since then I''ve been warned against the big companies.

We used GPSC last year and my only advice is to turn and run very fast in the other direction. They require a cash deposit for their boats, which make it very difficult to dispute any problems with the boat since they are holding your cash. Run very fast....

I do not have any experience with Odyssey sailing. I am actually a "competitor" of Odyssey sailing, but I can share with you a few things I know about them:
It is a yacht charter company in Greece located in Volos city and operating their yachts mostly in the sailing area of the Sporades islands (i.e.skiathos, skopelos etc). It happened that they asked me for available yachts in other areas in Greece, so we have exchanged a few emails between us. They seem to know the business and most important to care a lot about their clientele. I understand they will do the best possible for their clients.
Generally speaking the sailing yachts for charter in Greece (4-5 years old or younger) are well kept.

Hi, Today I reached sailing issues for first time and I found the comments very interesting. I am an experienced sailor since 1985 and I charter at least twice a year bareboats. Greece is my favorite sailing area and I have chartered with several yacht charter companies. The last 3 years my friends and I charter with Mythos.These guys are fantastic and so far had no problems. The most professional people I have ever known in yachting.
