Greek Sailaways are one to two week sailing holidays in a Christian environment offered through July, August and September, aboard the S/Y “ENCOUNTER ” our 90ft (27m) traditional gaff rigged schooner. Programs are in English or German.
Aboard the “Encounter” you’ll have the opportunity to experience the joy and beauty of sailing among some of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea. In the evenings however, you’ll be able to relax as you gaze at the setting sun, laying safely at anchor in a remote cove enjoying fine Greek and international meals, good company and the gentle sounds of the sea.
The daily schedule will involve sail training, knots, navigation, snorkeling over reefs and through caves, cliff jumping and windsurfing with lessons included, also excursions ashore, as well as ample opportunity to relax with a good book or chat with a friend, or just lay on the deck and soak in the sun.
Most days we will take the opportunity to explore God’s Word in an informal and friendly atmosphere. Sailaways I & II in fact will have an extra emphasis on bible teaching with a morning session, then two more teaching sessions in the evening after dinner.
The program is held in English or German (as specified in the dates and costs) and is for adults (18+) of all nationalities and is aimed at both individuals and groups.
Organizations, churches or youth groups may book a “Sailaway” exclusively. (Please enquire about tailoring the program to your group needs)
