Fly by Private Jet to your Sailing Holiday
11 July 2019
Dreaming of a sailing holiday in the Mediterranean? Getting there by private jet is the key to getting off to the right start. Why? Well you fly from your closest airport, direct to where you need to get to. You fly at the time that suits you and your group, and you can be sure that all of your luggage will arrive with you, as it travels with you.
You can save hours by taking a jet, as there is no waiting around – you check in and within 10 minutes you can be in the air, on your way to the best holiday ever. When you arrive you can be on your way just as quickly – no waiting in immigration queues or luggage halls for bags.
Here are some suggested routes around the Med:
Sailing the Cyclades Islands provides you with picturesque views of traditionally Greek white-washed houses and sun-drenched hillsides. The Cyclades are situated southeast of Athens and east of Poros, and are not protected by the mainland.
The Cyclades most well known islands are Santorini and Mykonos. Sailing here – especially during summer – is not recommended for beginners due to the unpredictable wind (you can always sail with a skipper, though!). But for those who can take the heat, a sailing route from Athens to Kea, Syros, Mykonos, Paros, Serifos, Cape Sunion and back to Athens is one of the most popular sailing routes in the Greek Islands.

The Dodecanese Islands
The Dodecanese are made up of of 12 gorgeous islands – the most popular islands to sail from are Rhodes and Kos – and this beautiful cluster is the most eastern archipelago in Greece.
A nice route would start in Rhodes, cruising over to Symi, Nissiros, Kos, Tilos, Chalki and heading back to Rhodes.

The Balearic Islands lie off the eastern coast of Spain in the western Mediterranean Sea. The three largest islands – Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca – are some of the most popular holiday destinations in Spain, and play home to millions of travellers each summer.
Sailing season here is year-round, but watch out for marinas becoming overcrowded from June to August.
A popular sailing route for expert sailors starts in Palma and continues around Ibiza, sailing up to Mahon and Ciudadella on Menorca, and then back down the other side of Mallorca to return to Palma.

The Dalmatian Coast
Bare, rugged and scattered along the Dalmatian Coast, the Kornati provide an exciting and challenging sailing ground. With hundreds of islands and islets to explore, sailing the Kornati is an interesting and busy sailing route.
Dugi Otok, Mali Losinj, Pag and Vir are some of the most popular Kornati islands to sail around, but in amongst these lie hundreds of others. Sailing from Split is generally the best base to explore the Kornati.
