Corfu: our new base in the Ionian Sea
Starting from the 2019 season, Fastsailing will open a new base in Gouvia Marina in Corfu.
This is an ideal starting point to enjoy the Ionian sea, an area which is famous for relaxed sailing, with plenty of beautiful islands to discover, from the famous Ithaca, Cephalonia and Paxi, to the more remote Othoni and Erikousa.
Corfu airport offers direct connections to major European cities and many daily flights to Athens.
The local base manager will be Dimitris Kalantzis, that many of you have met during numerous skippered charters and the Train & Race events .
In this new Corfu base there will be permanently based at least one Pogo12.50 and a Solaris47. Exceptionally, all our other boats will be able to move between Lavrio and Corfu depending on clients’ wishes.
Pogo30: the small rocket of our High Performance Line
Starting from August 11th 2018, we will have a small rocket in our High Performance Line: the Pogo30 !
Like all our other Pogos, our Pogo30 features a carbon mast with a square top main, pivoting keel, spinnaker and Code0.
Interiors offer 2 double cabins, a WC with shower and a complete kitchen.
Needless to say, it is very very FAST.
