Pirates for Planet Route of our Sustainable sailing expedition at the Gulf of Corinth from Athens to Zakynthos

Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Gulf of Corinth: from Athens to Zakynthos

Jump onboard our Sustainable Sailing expedition at the Gulf of Corinth! We will start our journey in Athens, the ancient capital of the world, and make our way through the Canal of Corinth: a 6 km-long masterpiece constructed in the 19th century to unite the two seas.

Once arrived on the other side, we will sail all the way along the Gulf of Corinth, with some stops on the mainland of Greece and the Peloponnesos. Finally, we’ll arrive at the Ionian Islands. We will spend our last 1 – 2 nights anchoring around Kefalonia or Zakynthos, before heading to Zakynthos port on the last day of our expedition.

Our exact sailing route (apart from departure and arrival destination) and which Ionian Islands we’ll visit, depend entirely on wind directions and weather conditions. This will be decided on board during the expedition. And of course, we are happy to take into consideration our pirates’ suggestions. Let’s follow the wind!



Program Onboard

SAILING

Let’s go sailing, no experience is needed! You will learn all the basics of sailing and everyone can participate in the manoeuvers. Expect short passages of a few hours and sometimes longer tracts.

ANCHORING

Once arrived at a good spot, we drop our anchor and stay on board the boat or go on land with our little boat, the dinghy. We spend most time at sea but sometimes we’ll visit places on land or go to the harbour.

PIRATE CREW

Get ready to be active! We cooperate as a crew and help with all tasks on board to keep the boat going: sailing, cooking, cleaning dishes, keeping deck and hull clean, and documenting our expedition.

SUSTAINABLE BOATLIFE

Let’s keep our expeditions ocean-friendly! That means all meals on board are vegan (gluten-free upon request) and we avoid buying packaged foods. We use only biodegradable products to not contaminate our seas with damaging chemicals.
