This is the south Ionian Sea with Lugger Jojo at anchor, the essential Bimini
in place and a delightful secluded bay known to all this summer as ‘Paradise’
Indeed it is paradise for Lugger sailing groups, it’s just half an hour from
Vliho Bay and offers a secluded anchorage to anchor off, have a pic nic
lunch and swim in the crystal clear waters of this Ionian Sea.
Yes, this is where I’m heading now, left Wales on 28 April for the drive across
Europe with my dog Bengy in tow and a packed to the Gunwhale’s Campervan.
So if this image above hits the right spot with you as too a perfect place for a
holiday, with an apartment/ Villa, flight transfers and not forgetting, a
Drascombe Lugger moored at the bottom of the garden.

With our winter maintenance period now over the Luggers are all cleaned
For 3 of the original Luggers that started the fleet off in 2009 they have
undergone a full make over, I started this last summer with the spraying of
the top plank and now recently Babis has finished the lower white hull spray
They are all now looking very smart and ready to be used from May onwards.
For those who would like to try out our New Sails, these Batten Roached main
and Mizen sails are on 2 of the Luggers, to match their increased performance I
have added a larger Genoa headsail.
There are 2 reviews of these done last summer by Andy Dean and Simon
Greenslade, take a look on the website.
They are a terrific addition to the Lugger.
For Families who wish to extend their sailing experience as a family unit I
still have limited availability for the school holiday period.
But don’t ponder, these apartments go very quickly.
All in all , there is a holiday in the South Ionian Sea with Dragon Drascombe to
suit all requirements.
Please note , we now are able to accept debit and credit card payments
for our packages.
So looking forward to meeting our groups new and existing out in the Ionian
Sea to experience our ‘Luggering about in the sun’.
My very best
