The two of us had a fantastically enjoyable week’s sailing on Flaneur. Whilst not a new boat, Flaneur is in PERFECT condition thoughout and remarkably well maintained and clearly loved – a lot better than your average charter. I can’t over-emphasize how well Malcolm took care of us for the week; his vast local knowledge proved invaluable, in relation to harbours, moorings, weather, restaurants, local sights etc. He is an excellent sailor and totally diligent; the safest hands imaginable. In my opinion our week on Flaneur was really great value overall, and we will definitely be back. Very highly recommended! Edward
Nektarios was absolutely lovely to be aboard with. When sailing, he was professional and very knowledgeable and so I always felt safe. He explained everything well, and taught me an incredible amount in one week. When we weren’t sailing, we would moor in one of the seemingly endless secret spots Nektarios knew of around the area. He was excellent company at all times, and cannot be recommended highly enough as a skipper.
I cannot speak highly enough of our week sailing in Greece on Flaneur. The setting is spectacular the boat is beautiful, well maintained and generously equipped; Malcolm is an excellent skipper (and cook!) very relaxed company and happy to allow us dictate the pace of the day and various islands/ports. Over the week we sailed to a number of islands, visited the stunning theatre in Epidavros, climbed the volcano near Vathi and sampled some local brew! The organisation of the holiday was very straightforward and starting from Aegina worked out very well as its a only a short journey from Piraeus by ferry. We genuinely had the most wonderful sailing holiday and I would unquestionable recommend Aegean Sailing Holidays.
Our principal skipper, Malcolm Marshall, is a qualified RYA Ocean Yachtmaster for over 30 years and holds the Offshore Sailing Diploma with Olympiacos Sailing School. Malcolm has wide-ranging experience sailing in the Mediterranean, particularly Greece for pleasure and as a professional skipper for over 20 years.
Our second skipper, Nektarios Doce, is RYA qualified in sail and motorboats. He is fluent in Greek and English and has a charming, gentle nature. Nektarios is a very competent sailor with extensive knowledge of our sailing grounds in the Aegean.
