I first came to Kefalonia in 1998 to teach windsurfing. I fell in love with the island and the people and soon developed a passion for sailing alongside starting a family. After gaining my Yachtmaster certificate and teaching RYA Yacht Sailing for several years I bought my first yacht in 2007 and set up Ionian Blue Sailing.
My main concern was being a small fish in a vast pond full of companies with huge fleets of yachts. But with some useful yacht charter industry experience under my belt with one of the the bigger operators and years spent chatting with and listening to clients I found that a lot of people wanted the assurance of a single, dedicated contact to help them through the whole chartering process, from the first enquiry through to helping plan a sailing itinerary. And this is where Ionian Blue Sailing differs from the larger operators and their agents. Personal and friendly support from start to finish. Simplicity is one of our strong points. No hidden extras or confusing options to mull over, just a great condition yacht which will allow you to explore the Ionian in safety and comfort, with dedicated 24/7 support.
My love for sailing has taken me to the Caribbean, Croatia, Italy, France, UK and of course Greece. All fabulous sailing locations, although the relaxed Greek philosophy is something which sets it apart. No eye watering mooring fees or strict harbour masters. Just low cost and hassle-free destinations where you can sail, relax and explore.
