Richard & Kathy 1st Place Charter Yacht in Ionian Regatta
Ionian 2014
We were lucky enough to be sailing in the Ionian on a Jeanneau 54ds to coincide with the 2014 Southern Ionian Regatta.

The Ionian is a fabulous cruising area in the west of Greece. See Ionian Cruising Area for more information about the itinerary for this area.

We had a fabulous day with glorious sunshine and fair winds. Over 200 yachts enetered the race. The start line was in the Meganissi Channel. Richard was at the helm and we got a cracking good start and crossed the line right on the gun. Several more tacks to get out of the channel and then it was one tack south around the southern tip of Arkhoudi Island. We took full advantage of the afternoon breeze and picked up good speed. On the home leg, north bound to the finish line at the entrance to Sivota, we were passing yachts one after the other.

It was the cherry on the cake when we were awarded the First Charter Yacht Prize that evening at the very enjoyable regatta party.

These excellent photos and video were taken by Kevin Jones from, a professional photographer based in Cephalonia.
