Location

Circe is based in the Ionian and operates out of Corfu.   A week’s cruise will take you around the northern Ionian waters & the islands of Corfu, Paxos and Anti-Paxos and of course, the Greek Mainland.

A two week cruise could also include the more southern Ionian islands of Levkada, Ithaca and Cephalonia.
Transport

Fly to Corfu from all London and most regional airports

The crew will meet you on arrival at Corfu and transfer you to and from Circe

Local Information

There are limitless opportunities for escape on board Circe, based in Corfu, this boat can explore the Ionians at will (& frequently does!)

The wind & sailing conditions in the Ionian sea are ideal & predictable. From May to September the wind blows from the north-west at force 2.5. In spring & autumn the wind is less strong & blows usually from a south westerly direction. It arrives around noon & dies down at sunset.
The Ionian Islands are located on teh western side of mainland Greece, opposite Italy. There are seven main islands that are different from other islands by their fertile land (blanketed with olive groves sustained by the winter rains) & clear blue waters. The mixture of different civilisations & cultures is harmoniously welded together into one piece that is undoubtedly Greek, in a complex of islands where some of the most beuautiful beaches can be explored.
Spend days sailing the coast, drop anchor for lunch after a spot of swimming on an uninhabited island. Go diving for urchins before enjoying a sundowner on the teak deck before eating fresh salad & whatever you have managed to catch that day.
Our View

Circe has been designed to be independent from the shore for long periods, allowing longer stays anchored in secluded bays.

She is an eye-catching, graceful little ship, a type which is rarely seen in Mediterranean waters. She will attract a lot of attention and admiring glances wherever she goes.
Circe is a Gaff Rigged Ketch built in Norway in 1915.   She is of a very strong, traditional construction, originally built to transport general cargo between Norway, Denmark and Sweden.  She was converted to a private yacht in 1950s but a complete build, lasting 7 years, was started in 2006 by the current owner.  All timbers and all rigging have been replaced and new mechanical and electrical systems installed.  On deck, Cirque retains much of her original charm – for example she does not have winches, all sail work is done by hand using block and tackle as in the olden days. The masts and spars are made form solid Douglas Fir trees.
