For hostess/half-board the hostess will prepare a delicious multi course greek lunch while anchored in a bay.
For skippered-only charters you will typically be sailing during the afternoon, so you’ll be able to enjoy lunch aboard the yacht while anchored in a beautiful cove. The skipper will anchor for an hour or so and give you time to go to go for a swim, explore and prepare lunch.
We recommend picking up some initial provisions in Athens to cover the first few days at sea. You’ll be able to pick additional food and drinks on the island markets which are much less expensive than Athens.
Since dinners are such a big part of Greek island culture we generally recommend a lighter lunch and you can pick up a afternoon snack on the island when you arrive. Dinner on the islands is usually around 9 or 10pm.
Most guests prefer a quick and easy lunch such as soups, pasta or sandwiches. However, all of our yachts have an oven and stove so you can prepare almost anything you would like. We recommend stocking up provisions from the island markets.
Note: On charters without a hostess, it’s common (and appreciated) to offer the captain some snacks and a light lunch during the week. They are often sailing all day won’t have time to prepare lunch on their own.
