For sailing in Greece, the experience is often enough to rent a yacht. However, it may be that some landlords ask for boat license 2. Throughout the years, many modifications were made for the boating policy. For this reason, when you rent a yacht on your own, it is crucial always to indicate which certificates you have.
Corfu is situated in the Ionian Sea along the west coast of Greece. Because of the millions of olive trees on its territory, the island is also known as "The Green Island."

The area is kept clean and open for visitors, who are sailing around. This and numerous pebble beaches can be found in Gouvia as you rent a yacht and navigate around.
