Adventures for sailors

Chartering a sailboat

You can rent sailboats of different classes and sizes from the numerous charter companies that are distributed across the entire water-sport region. Most boats have a shallow draught, a retractable centre board and a mast that can be taken down in order to enjoy the variety of waterways in the area.
