When you buy food for your sailing, you have to keep in mind, that the storage space is not much. Enjoy the fresh fish and sea food which you find at the small village ports. At many of the places there will be shops providing you with the most necessary. Greece is famous with its bakeries, in which you can find a wide variety of bread, snacks, pastry and other sweet and salty delicious things. So buy the most basic from the very beginning:
- Bread, butter and food preserves for breakfast;
- Coffee, milk and sugar, as well as many oranges for juice;
- Sausages and cheese for a quick bite or appetizer for the wine;
- Different “κουλούρια”(simit) – salty and sweet sticks from the bakery;
- Olive oil, salt, lemon to add taste to the salads, and also a variety of vegetables, of course;
- Pastry, sauces, mince and other fast-prepared foods. After all you’ve came here on a vacation, not on a culinary competition…
- Ouzo, beer, water, juices and soft drinks…
Everywhere you stop, there are small taverns, fish restaurants, Gyros and grill places. So just enjoy the fresh food and the fresh air on the coast of the sea.
If upon your arrival you don’t have time for shopping, you can send us a list with the wanted purchases and we will take care of them being on board for your sailing.
The different yachts have different fuel consumption, ranging from 3 to 7-8 litres an hour. When you choose a specific boat, we will show you what it is. Because you will sail mainly with sails, you will use the motor mainly for going in and out of ports.
Here’s an example. If your motor uses 7 litres an hour for a 7 day charter you will use it for an average of 4 hours a day, which makes about 200 litres of fuel. With the price of €1.44 a litre, the amount of expenses for fuel will be about €300.
Here’s a list of the basic expenses for a group:
- Price for the charter – you divide it by the number of people in your crew;
- Flight tickets, taxis and transfer;
- Additional options (if you have stated such) – divide it by the number of people in your crew;
- Fuel – divide it by the number of people in your crew;
- Your personal expenses while you stop at each place.
