Information for the sailing trip from Lefkas
We would like to point out that due to the legal situation in Greece, it is not possible to have charter contracts confirmed in advance at the port office. Greek law requires the original signature of the client on the contracts and the crew list on site. Only then can we present your ship's papers to the port captain. Therefore, please understand that there may be delays due to possible waiting times at the port police.
