Do you run courses in the Cyclades? Do you go to Mykonos / Santorini?

Answer:

We do not run RYA courses to the Cyclades as the conditions there can be unsuitable for novice sailors with very strong winds and big seas.

The Greek Port Police are entitled to stop commercial boats (including yachts) leaving harbour if the weather forecast is for winds of over F6. In the Cyclades it is not uncommon to get stuck in a port for several days, which would prevent you from completing your course. Our sailing area of the Saronic and Argolic Gulfs is far more sheltered and we have only lost three sailing days through strong winds in the past three years.

We do run milebuilding trips to the Cyclades in the Spring and Autumn. Alternatively you could visit them by ferry from Piraeus following your course.
