The Southern Dodecanese - Greece


A great week of sailing out of Rhodes, Greece. We have two boats full already and hope to put on a third.

The Dodecanese literally “twelve islands” are a group of 15 larger plus 150 smaller Greek islands in the south-eastern Aegean Sea and Eastern Mediterranean, off the coast of Turkey’s Anatolia, of which 26 are inhabited. The Southern Dodecanese encompass many beautiful and unspoilt islands and it is here we are heading for our first 2023 Mediterranean sailing trip. The area is an island-hopping paradise with plenty of lovely towns and deserted bays to enjoy.

Our gateway island, Rhodes is steeped in history and Greek mythology. One of the most popular Greek islands with some of the best beaches as well as the site of the famous Colossus of Rhodes and the Acropolis of Rhodes. It is here we start our adventure picking up the yachts in Rhodes Harbour. With plenty of restaurants to choose from we will be ready to set sail on Sunday morning.

Weather should be hot with no rain but not scorching. Winds are moderate and excellent for sailing.
This trip is organised by Sundowners Yacht Club a not-for-profit club.

All our skippers are RYA certified.
