If you have the dream - or even a concrete plan - to sail the Med next holiday, there's a new yacht charter opportunity you should be aware of on the Greek Island of Corfu, competition for the many yacht charter companies already there.

The Moorings, arguably the world's largest charter company, now under common ownership with Sunsail, has announced it will open a new base in Corfu, located just off Greece's northwest coast. Corfu is the perfect starting point for a bareboat sailing or skippered charter through the region's famous northern and southern Ionian Islands.?

The flexible itineraries possible from Corfu offer a range of experiences to suit all tastes. Cheryl Powell, Chief Operating Officer of The Moorings, notes, 'This destination is highly regarded by sailors for consistently superb weather, as well as its combination of open sea sailing through longer passages to the South lonian, shorter island hops in between and even stops in scenic ports of call along the mainland.'

Before or after a charter, there is much to explore on the island of Corfu, which has earned international acclaim and been nicknamed 'Jewel of the Ionian' for its historical ports, warm hospitality, stunning beaches and well-preserved Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

There would be opportunities explore fascinating sights along the way, such as Drogarati, a magnificent cavern 196 feet below ground on Kefalonia, as well as the uniquely different ports of Frikes, Kioni and Vathy that are located on the easygoing isle of Ithaca, the fabled home of Odysseus.

The renowned town of Lefkas on Lefkas Island is also well within reach and offers boutiques, several museums and some of the area's best seafood tavernas. Afloat, Greece's clean, crystal clear waters offer excellent snorkelling and scuba diving.

According to Powell, Corfu is also an excellent destination for holiday makers because of the many flight options it affords travellers around the world; it is easily reached by short connecting flights from Athens and most European cities. The Moorings base is a short 10-minute drive from Corfu International Airport.

The Moorings Corfu base will be open during Greece's primary sailing season from April through November, when guests can expect northwest winds from 10 to 20 knots with calms in the morning. Temperatures are comfortable, ranging between 24oC to 28oC, and water temperatures average 26oC.

Custom Monohulls and Catamarans - 39 to 50 ft.The Moorings will offer a series of custom Bénéteau-built monohulls, including the Moorings 41.3 (3-cabin/2-head), Moorings 43.3 (3-cabin/3-head) and the Moorings 50.5 (5-cabin/5-head).

In addition, fleet's newest catamaran, Moorings 3900 (3-cabin/2-head), will be offered. This charter model was based upon the award-winning hull design, interior accommodation plan and helm station of the hugely successful Leopard 38, winner of several design awards.
