Island Sailing Offers Extra Yachts to Meet Demand for Ionian Bareboat Charters

After unprecedented levels of bare boat yacht charter bookings for summer 2011 yacht charter company Island Sailing have released additional charter weeks throughout the summer sailing season to meet demand.

Online PR News – 09-February-2011 – – This summer Lefkas marina based Island Sailing will be offering yacht charters predominantly on a bareboat basis. Bareboat yacht charter holidays are proving a real hit for a wide range of sailing holiday makers who seek the freedom and independence to explore the Ionian islands of Greece at their own pace with the peace of mind that 24/7 support is on hand from a dedicated team.

This year’s Ionian yacht charter summer sailing season runs from April to the end of October with charter flights running every week from the UK direct to Preveza airport only 20 minutes drive from Island Sailing’s Lefkas marina base. Island Sailing’s yacht charter early booking discounts and bareboat charter special offers have proved so popular that extra availability has now been provided for those still thinking about booking this summer. With additional availability there are still some great deals to be had on Ionian bareboat charters through Island Sailing including discounts for 2 week bookings and great deals on Ionian yacht charters in May and June 2011.

With bare-boat yacht charter you hire and sail the boat yourself with your family or friends. With a bare boat yacht charter you can plot your own route around picturesque bays, little harbours and fishing villages scattered throughout the Ionian Islands or get inspiration from the Island Sailing team. With an Ionian bareboat yacht charter you can spend as long as you like anchored in a peaceful bay, return to your favourite places over and over, or discover something new each day.

Head of Operations for the British family owned and run sailing specialists, Jonny Hope explains, “We have released extra availability for both one and two week Ionian bareboat charters after being inundated with requests for this summer.” He attributes the high demand to a number of factors: Firstly, with its fantastic Mediterranean climate with warm weather spanning the entire sailing season the Ionian guarantees warm weather sailing to UK yacht charterer’s who have suffered such a cold winter.

Secondly, the Ionian waters are ideal for bareboat sailing as the close proximity of the islands to one another and almost no tide or currents makes navigation in the Ionian islands simple and stress free and suitable for couples, families and groups of friends of all ages and abilities.

Finally, the popularity of Island Sailing’s bareboat charters in particular is down to the professional and dedicated support offered to customers. Whilst the Greek Ionian islands are already renowned for perfect sailing conditions yacht charter holidays have become increasingly accessible over the years and in particular bareboat charters such as those offered by Island Sailing provide peace of mind that support is available throughout the holiday. Jonny said, “Bare boat yacht charter is the best way to explore the Ionian islands of Greece. A bareboat yacht charter with Island Sailing does not mean you are sent off without any support, it just means you have the freedom to do what you like, when you like”.
