Imagine... lounging on the deck of 'your' yacht as you sail past picturesque mountains and rocky cliffs. Enjoy the panoramic view of scenic valleys and sandy beaches as you listen to the thunderous sound of waves crashing on the distant shore. If you prefer, take a turn at the helm, trim the sails, and feel the power of wind and water touch your soul. Later visit a local taverna, order the fresh fish and then we will introduce you to the fisherman who caught it! With Custom Sailing we offer you a true local experience, come sail with friends.

We are a family of 4, went when our kids were 12 or 13. We have done a fair amount of traveling with them, and this was easily the best experience we have had, we all loved it, which is unusual, as we don't always enjoy the same things... We felt very safe and comfortable with Valerie, always, and she had maria papagiorgio with her as an assistant and cook , the food was spectacular. I still try to replicate some of her recipes. They were both fun, easy to talk to and be with, laid back and flexible. Valerie is an expert captain, well known and connected to others sailing in the area who welcome her at every
Port. Being on a boat was an amazing way to see Greece, never having to pack and unpack and deal with transportation from place to place. I can still Remember the joy and excitement of waking up, going up on deck into the wind and sun and being en route to a new location....
I can't recommend this highly enough, go. Don't miss it. . I can't imagine you and your kids won't love it, and Remember it forever. We still talk about it, Greece is amazing and going with Valerie is the best way I can imagine doing it.
