What you'll do

One of the benefits of being docked in Zygi is that it is between Larnaca and Limassol (Limassol being the closest). You can get a bus from Larnaca as well as from Limassol to drive you to Zygi. We shall cast off from the port of Zygi and head towards Governors beach, checking out the shore as we go. We shall open up the sails, kill the engine and let the power of the wind carry us. Right after the Zygi port we shall pass the docking station of Vassiliko where large freight ships are docked for loading and unloading cargo. Passing Vassiliko the fish farms will be our next checkpoint, where usually sea turtles and dolfins show up. Right next to the farms our final destination will be Governors beach, where we shall drop anchor and relax before heading back. Sailboats are not Power boats, although they go majestically, they are slower, so although this may sound like a small trip in reality it will be more that enough.
Other things to note
Please note that sailing may not always be possible if the weather is bad or if i think that it might turn bar. The available dates i have in the calendar are based on latest weather forecast and i try to watch it as often as possible. Safety as well as a pleasant experience are my main goals.

Sailing and the sea in general has always been a passion of mine. Dreamed of having a sailboat and being a captain for as long as i can remember. A while back i finally sold most of my belongings, bought a sailboat which was a complete wreck and rebuilt it from scratch. Changed my profession completely and am now living on the sailboat i built with my own two hands. I work on it, upgrade it and maintain it so that it is always seaworthy and ready for new adventures. Have already finished my ASA Day Skipper license as well as other qualifications and am working within the marine industry so i am near, on and under the sea almost all the time. I try to be an example to others and treat the sea with the respect it deserves. Hopefully some of my love for the sea will be transferred to others as well.

Where you'll be

Anything along the way from the sea will seem new and interesting to you. Watching the shore pass by is a site of its own and even i enjoy revisiting the same spots over and over again. We shall pass the large commercial vessels being docked, the fishing farms and naturally will reach Governors beach itself, where we shall drop anchor.

Me and my fiancee had a great time! Dimitris is a cool host who showed us how sailing works and had lots of interesting stories to tell. We anchored just off governor’s beach and got a chance to dive in the crystal clear water. Would 100% recommend!

Demetris is well-versed in all the intricacies pertaining to sailing. He lives on his boat which gives him an edge in navigating. Demetris readily shared his wealthy experience. I particularly appreciated his attention to detail. His passion and knowledge transpired throughout our entire exchange. This made the experience all around pleasant and educational. He also encouraged me to take on an active role in navigating. The sailing trip is a unique experience which I can thoroughly recommend to anyone.
