Re: Greece: Dodecanese vs Ionian islands

I suggest that you look at my answer & analysis (no. 3) at the thread "Departing from KOS island...North or South?" dating back in 2007.
South Dodecanese wind pattern is very much similar to the one...

Re: Med or Caribbean - which is cheaper

The Med may appear expensive for someone travelling from USA. For someone based in Europe the Caribbean costs twice as much considering the air fair alone. As far as the charter fee is concerned and...

Re: Bareboat Charter Pricing and your charter experiences

Re: Flotilla sailing with Sunsail

Flotilla chartering for your very first time as a skipper or in unknown waters is a plausible option and SUNSAIL is a major player and pace setter in the field. Needless to add that I have a...

A used Laser could be cheap/easy to buy and quick to sell.
A Topper could equally do.
Remember that after a while you will opt for a higher tier boat and the corresponding sailing activity.
