Ocean Elements' Stay and Sail holidays offer the best of both worlds. Enjoy a week's holiday at our Beach Club Hotel in Vassiliki, Greece and then take to the seas for the second week on an Ocean Elements yacht and cruise the beautiful Ionian Islands. A fantastic 'twin centre' holiday packed with variety - perfect for families, sailing enthusiasts, and active holiday makers.

Spend your first week unwinding in Vassiliki, a water sports mecca where you can enjoy a variety of water sports as well as lots of shore-based activities. There's a daily kids and teen club which means you get some well-deserved 'me time' whilst the kids go wild.

Week two, it's all aboard as you take to the seas on your own yacht. You can choose between joining our sociable Flotilla cruise where every route is planned for you or go Bareboat sailing around the islands.

To charter a boat in Greece you will need to have at least a Day Skipper or ICC qualification (International Certificate of Competence). The great news is you can take your Day Skipper and ICC with us or you can hire a skipper, if you prefer.

The yachts sleep 6 to 8 people and has fully equipped galleys, a comfortable saloon with sofa seating and at least three double cabins and a bathroom with WC and shower.

Week one includes:

  • Direct Flights/Transfer
  • Windsurfing, Dinghy Sailing
  • RYA Tuition all week
  • Paddleboarding, Kayaks, Fun boats
  • Mountain biking & Guiding
  • Fitness clubs & social events
  • Active clubs for Kids and Teens
  • Hotel Pool, Sun loungers, Beach bar
Week two includes:
  • Fully equipped cruising yacht
  • Lead Crew support
  • Ocean Elements technical briefings
  • Full Yacht handover with systems training
  • Help and advice all week
  • Fully equipped galley with each boat
  • First fill of diesel, water and gas
  • Area cruising notes
  • A paddleboard for your week
