The Ionian Sea is one of the most popular sailing areas in the world and Easter in Corfu is one of the most unique and beautiful celebrations of Christianity. Of course, it is not just a matter of religion, so even you don’t have the same beliefs it is still a spectacle worth witnessing. This is why we decided to arrange a 10 day Easter sailing flotilla in Corfu so that you have the opportunity to observe these celebrations while enjoying sailing in the most beautiful places in the area. Choose one of the fully equipped catamarans of our fleet with or without crew and follow the lead crew to unique destinations every day.
