Just come back from a fab trip with the family, care of Dragon Drascombe. Phil was always on hand to offer advice on sailing expeditions, local weather forecasts and places to eat and grab provisions whilst still keeping tabs on all his other guests.
A very diverse holiday which can cater for the very active among us or those who just want a Greek escape. We’ll definitely be back.
Two weeks sailing in the sunshine – we couldn’t wait! After a disappointingly wet Scottish Spring, we were eagerly anticipating blue skies, gentle winds, warm sunshine and cold beer. This was to be an opportunity to explore Greece from the sea. And it turned out to be all that plus a lot more!
These little Luggers were easily the best and most relaxing way to see Greece from the sea. You have got to give it a go!
Simon Greenslade was one of the first to try out the new improved sail rig, and he sent us these comments:
The increased sail area provided by the ‘roller-reef’ genoa, the mainsail (with ‘inbuilt’ top sail) and larger mizzen, allowed us to make good pace in the wind range Force 1 to 3. A great improvement!
This year we stayed at the Iris Hotel Apartments. Our room was conveniently close to the bar and the two pools, and we were impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the very friendly staff. The food is pretty good pub grub and we had the huge advantage of our Lugger pulled up on the beach just a dozen yards from our room.
We tried out the new sail rig which boasts a new Genoa foresail, and batten-roached main and mizen sails. The result was a much faster boat, very good performance in light airs.
A really enjoyable two weeks at Geni. The joy of having a boat (Clara) was exploring small sheltered bays which were not accessible by foot. We both loved swimming from the boat and the wonderful sensation of the sun on your face as you swam in beautiful turquoise water. May is an excellent time to visit as the spring flowers are out and people’s lemons trees are laden with fruit. A cycle trip up into the hills was an opportunity to see more of the interior and to get away off the beaten track.
Wens dat de zeiltocht lang mag zijn. Dat er veel zomerse dagen mogen komen,waarop je met fijn gevoel zult binnenvaren in onbekende baaien en havens (Desimi bay). Houd Lefkas altijd in gedachten,was het er niet dan was je nooit vertrokken. 3 dagen zeilen, het leek een jaar! Dank voor je support, tot de volgende keer.
Zeilers groet, Linda en Marc

We’re excited to be teaming up with GetActiveLefkas to offer road and trail biking sessions, as shown on our Cycle and Sail page, along with hiking opportunities in the beautiful countryside of Lefkada.
Both offer great value for active or family groups who wish to experience new skills or to upgrade existing interests. We take care of booking these sessions and can arrange transportation to the venues.
If you love our beautifully restored Luggers, why not check out our sister company Just Lugger Joinery. We can provide you with the parts you need to update your own Lugger, made to the same high standards you find on our boats in the Ionian.
And starting this October we will be offering a refit and repair service to our clients.
