Multi-Day Programm, Day North Sporades, Skyro, Evia. Set sail on the seas near North Sporades,


Day 1. Skiathos to Loutraki (Skopelos) – 21 nM
Here we go! Whether you’re a regular sailor, or if this is likely to be your only time on a yacht this year, welcome aboard. Get everyone on-board, with all your provisions, and then let’s slip the lines and get out of here.
If you look to your port side as you leave Skiathos marina, it possible to see our destination in the distance on the nearest island because it’s only a few miles away in a straight line – however, we’re on a sailing holiday, and we want to get some sailing in and get to grips with the boat, so we’re going the long way around, basically circumnavigating the whole island of Skiathos.
We’ll start by heading South-west, keeping the coast on your starboard side, as we work our way around. As well as practising sailing at pretty much all the points of sail, you’ll be able to get more of an idea about what Skiathos is all about. You’ll pass a multitude of beaches, including the ever-popular Koukounaries beach on the South-west, the party beach of Big banana beach and the neighbouring nudist Little banana beach on the West Coast, and the beautiful Lalaria beach on the North of the island. Stop awhile at one of the smaller beaches if you fancy, or if things are getting hot.
From Lalaria beach, we’re going to hop across due East to Skopelos island, and the small fishing village of Loutraki. Loutraki is a beautiful little village, and the local beach was made famous by being the shooting location for the recent Mamma Mia film. There’s a couple of tavernas here (or more up the hill in the nearby village of Glossa), but the best thing to do here is to settle down and watch the sun setting over the island of Skiathos.
Day 2. Loutraki to Skopelos – 17 nM
After enjoying the delights of Loutraki beach and the small-village feel of the place, we’re heading to the capital and namesake of Skopelos island. People have been living in Skopelos Town for thousands of years, and, thanks to its strategic location, it has grown into a magnificent and elegant town which is a joy to stroll around and explore. From the sea, it looks idyllic, with classic white-washed houses, an abundance of greenery, and narrow dusty roads making the town look about as Greek as they come.
To get there, we’re sailing North from Loutraki to the northernmost tip of Skopelos island, likely reaching against the prevailing wind. Once you’re round the top of the island, it’s a single tack and a broad reach to follow the coastline South-east to Skopelos Town, which you’ll find nestled in the bottom half of the island. One the way you’ll pass plenty enough bays and beaches, which might be worth a look – the most popular are Agios Ioannis and Glysteri.
Pulling into Skopelos Town might well be the highlight of your trip, with the town surrounding the marina like a giant amphitheatre, so get your camera handy. Now is also a good time to try to remember to take a group shot of your crew!
Once focus on fishing and growing vines and olives, nowadays, Skopelos is principally a tourist town, with people flocking here from around the world, and some arguing that it is the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean. That said, it attracts a different crowd to those in Skiathos, and you’ll find it a relaxing place to be, and it’s said that people actually walk slower here. There’s a good range of shops and services, and it’s worth stocking up because we’re going remote for the next couple of days

Day 3. Skopelos to Kira Panagia – 24 nM
The trip from Skopelos to Kira Panagia is the longest leg on this itinerary at 24 nautical miles, but it will feel like you have gone to another planet. We’re leaving man-made beauty and civilisation to head to an anchorage on a remote and unspoilt island. There are no shops there, so make sure you have plenty of food and drink to see you through the night.

From Skopelos, we’re heading north-east, into the prevailing wind, and basically sailing along the length of the Westside of Alonissos island, then onwards to Kira Panagia. You should be beating your way up the wind, and by the end of the day you should have a well-trained crew, and you’ll understand the boat so much that you’ll be communicating about tacks by just nodding at each other.

The best and most sheltered anchorage on the island of Kira Panagia is on the North of the island, where there’s a narrow channel that leads into a large bay area, which has plenty of space for throwing down the anchor, and good holding conditions. Pay attention to your charts and plotter when sailing the narrow channel inwards as there are some shallow reefs along one side.

Kira Panagia is part of the Alonissos national marine park, and it is a very tranquil place to rest awhile. The only building on the whole island is a monastery. It was originally built in the 16th century and renovated in 2017, but there has been something on that site for much longer (there are graves outside which date back to 500 AD), and there are a couple of signs that a couple of Roman and ancient Greek buildings were once built on the island.

Day 4. Kira Panagia to Kalamakia (Alonissos) – 16 nM
Are you bored of the sound of silence yet? We’re going to head somewhere with a little more life (but not too much). From Kira Panagia, head Northwards back out of the bay, then due East. If you’ve gotten a taste for remote churches and monasteries, then you’re in luck – you’ll also find them on nearby Gioura and Pappous, and you’ll score double points if you dig out the binoculars and spot them both.

From the bay on the South of Gioura, head South-west and head around the south side of Kira Panagia, enjoying the wilderness of it all. Continue South-west, running with the prevailing wind, to the Eastern side of Alonissos, and our destination, Kalamakia, is halfway down on your starboard side.

Kalamakia is a quiet fishing village with a population of just 66 people which has some amazing fish restaurants along the waterfront, a small beach, and a pretty view overlooking the channel to nearby Peristera.

Day 5. Kalamakia to Patitiri (Alonissos) – 11 nM
If you’ve not yet fallen in love with the Sporades, then perhaps today will be the day. We’re not going on a long sail, but take a look around you and be sure to enjoy the views and the peace and quiet of the islands in the sunshine.
We’re actually sailing to two places today as we bimble around the Alonissos national marine park. Firstly, sailing East to the small bay on the Southside of the top half of the island of Peristera (that will make sense to you when you get the charts out), which is the island you’ll have been able to see from Kalamakia.
Peristera is like a nature reserve. It’s completely uninhabited (save for a few shepherds who tend to their flock every once in a while), and overrun with wildlife. The bay you’re in should have monk seals swimming and flopping around, plus plenty of birds (look out for Falcons), sea-turtles and it’s possible to spot dolphins in the Alonissos national marine park (if you haven’t already).
The island is also famous for an ancient shipwreck that was found opposite the town of Steni Vela which dates back to 500 BC – it’s an ancient Greek cargo ship which was heading to Skopelos with 1,500 vases of wine from Halkidiki. You need scuba gear to see it properly, but it’s only 30m below, and the crystal-clear waters mean you can spot something down there.
From Peristera, we’re heading to the picture-postcard Patitiri, further south-west down the coast of Alonissos. The prevailing wind should be behind you as you run with the wind down the straight, and it’s only a short sail away.
You’ll find the pretty town of Patitiri nestled in between the pine trees. It’s a relatively modern village that was only built in 1965 – people moved here after a nearby town was destroyed in an earthquake. It’s a delightful place to sit, reflect and people watch, and the people here don’t seem to have a care in the world.
As well as a few Tavernas, there’s a couple of bakeries and a mini-market, and a small beach. The marina tends to fill up quickly in peak season, but you can also anchor in the south side of the bay.
Day 6. Patitiri to Skiathos – 21 nM
Oh no – the last day! Hopefully, you’ve had a brilliant holiday enjoying the sunshine, sailing, and the scenery – the Sporades really are a special place to sail. Hopefully, all the crew have behaved themselves and you’ll be leaving Greece with more or even better friends than you arrived with – which is always the sign of a good holiday.
Over the past few days, we’ve gone from an uninhabited island to a small village (Kalamakia) to a big village (Patitiri) and now it’s time to return to the sights and sounds of a town (Skiathos). Skiathos is obviously still a world away from being a big city, but it will feel big and busy after the last few days, and you won’t be able to believe the constant noise.
From Patitiri the journey is a simple hop around the Southside of Skopelos island, and up to Skiathos. You could also go to Skopelos and over the northern side of it, but going around on the south side of the island means that we’ll have completed a circumnavigation of all four of the main islands we have visited on this itinerary, and seen all there is to see on each island. The first half of the leg will see you running with the prevailing wind (bonus points for throwing in a goose-wing, by the way), before reaching across the wind to Skiathos when you get beyond Skopelos island.

If you’ve not had the chance to explore Skiathos then now is the time to get out there. It’s a lively place to be all week, but Fridays are particularly boisterous affairs as a lot of the package operators (both for sailing and for beach holidays) have changeover day on Saturday, so this will be a lot of people’s last night.
Have a safe trip home, thanks for the memories, and we’ll count on you to be at Latocruiser.com soon – to start to plan your next great adventure!
