Dinghy Sailing

Postby nigelik » Sun Apr 01, 2018 10:19 am

Does anybody know where I can sail / rent / crew a dinghy?
I know Crete-Watersports http://www.crete-watersports.gr at Anissaras Beach but no others near or drivable from Kastri (Ano Viannos) where we are.

Some information in a previous thread but a little old.

If you're prepared to explore the Xania area the last time I walked along the waterfront of the inner harbour I noticed a few sailing craft plying for customers. Most were for day and ½ day "tours" but I did notice a couple that were advertising self-sail and/or crew wanted.

There's the Xania Yacht Club which would seem a reasonable place to get some leads. They have a Lounge Cafe at the extreme western end of Xania harbour but I've only seen junior activities there - youngsters being taught in small dinghies. I don't know exactly where are the main club premises but they're quite close to the café, apparently.

This site (not the club site) has contact details:

and this is their Facebook page:
