Just come back from a fab trip with the family, care of Dragon Drascombe. Our main host, Phil Osborne, who seemed to have boundless energy, 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.
We’ve done a few flotilla trips in Greece on larger yachts but as a family we’re completely won over by what Phil offers. The Drascombe Lugger can easily be pulled up onto most beaches which the bigger yachts can’t reach, and with the simple to rig bimini we can still hide from the midday sun whilst motoring along to find another hidden cove. We had many admiring glances and a few more vocal ‘we love your boat’ shouts from distant yachts.
On the more stormy evenings we were very grateful we weren’t on a bouncy charter boat but could feel more secure sleeping on terra firma in the air-conditioned accommodation at Gialos apartments above Costa’s Taverna, who was a very cheery host and also helping us to moor on the restaurant pontoon at the end of each day.
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.
