Sailing Yacht Dragon Itinerary.
There is no set sailing route to be taken. Wind and weather conditions together with guests’ preferences help to decide where we sail to and anchor for the night. Each day there is always time for swimming, in a delightful bay then sailing on to another destination and finding a safe anchorage for the night. Most nights the evening meal will be at a waterside tavern or on board if anchored in a secluded bay.
For those not familiar to sailing our average speed is 5 mile per hour so distances covered during a normal day are between 20 – 25 miles. Experienced sailors may wish to travel further spending more time at sea, rather than exploring bays and coastal regions. We recommend you do not try to go too far so you can fully relax and experience the ambiance of each island or bay.
