Greece, Cyclades islands (from Lavrion)
Start your sailing journey through the Cyclades, a beautiful group of Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. Explore charming harbors, lively towns, and hidden treasures as you sail in the clear waters.
Begin your adventure from Lefkas Marina, the starting point for exploring the wonders of the Ionian. Situated along the Lefkada coastline, the marina provides a convenient departure spot with modern facilities.
The total length of the route is about 175 nautical miles.
Be cautious about strong winds around the Cyclades islands, as they can be quite high near steep cliffs. If you sail too close to the leeward coast, there's a risk of being pushed towards the cliffs by a sudden wind.
The sailing time is approximate and calculated based on an average sailing speed of 6 knots. The actual time will depend on the choice of the marina, weather conditions, yacht specifications, and crew skills.
