Got answers to all your sailing questions

Should I hire a hostess, cook or deckhand for my sailing holiday in Greece?

Its up to you. All skippers are capable of sailing most yachts with just a little help while anchoring. If you like you can hire a hostess who can assist the skipper in general with the boat and prepare breakfast and an easy/light lunch, plus do basic tidying up around the boat.

Aegean Wind will recommend and hire on your behalf a local English speaking hostess or deck-hand for the full duration of your charter. The hostess is not preparing complicated recipes onboard because of the limited space and storage of a charter sailing yacht.

The daily fee for a hostess is 120 Euro per day. 

The simple and casual nature of sailing and the cooking facilities of the sailboats define the style of the holidays. Therefore the level of services provided by a hostess onboard a sailing yacht should not be compared to services of the permanent crew found on fully crewed yachts.
