From our departure port on Kos island we start this clothing optional gay sailing cruise and set sail heading south/south east to visit the various beautiful islands in this fantastic cruising area. Each island has its own character and you can expect beautiful secluded and clear water bays, steep magnificent cliffs, pretty villages and even a volcano that we can visit by a spectacular scooter drive down into the crater! Without a doubt this is one of the most beautiful sailing areas in Greece with a lot of variety that is hard to find anywhere else. There will often be the choice to stay overnight in a village or in a bay and sleep under the stars!
This is a clothing optional trip and we will also visit anchorages with sufficient privacy for those that like to enjoy this adventure in the buff as much as possible. We will have a 50 feet yacht with 5 cabins (double and bunk) that accomodates a maximum of 10 gay sailor dudes. Average distances per day range from 20 to 30 NM or 4 to 6 hours depending on the weather conditions.
We do not give specific day-to-day itinerary because it will most likely change depending on the wind. In other words, we aim to visit the most interesting places and go where the wind blows. In fact, that is also why we call our sailing cruises an adventure and makes every SAILORdudes gay cruise unique.
The twelve islands (= the meaning of 'dodecanese') around Kos are very different and worth visiting. Visit the vulcano on Nisiros, an unspoiled beautiful blue bay on Alimnia, pretty Simi or the monastery of St. John the Baptist on Patmos.
There are open waters between the islands and crossing over from one to the other may take a couple of hours.
From Kos you either go north/northwest or south/south east for a week of sailing. Typical islands to visit in the north are Pserimos, Kalimnos, Leros, Lipsi and Patmos. In the south: Nisiros,Tilos, Chalki, Alimia and Simi. Daily distances in the South are in general a bit longer than in the North.
Skippers note: very nice area due to its variety of islands, pretty villages and nature.
