Intro into YWAM Ships

Sail the Aegean Sea

summer 2020

YWAM’s Sailing Ship is based in Skala Lautra, Lesvos, Greece.

We are offering two opportunities to join us on board for Summer July & August 2020

option one

Accommodation for up to 30 people on board based in a very peaceful and beautiful Greek port. The vessel will be stationary but offer short day sails for up to 12 passengers (additional certified crew) at a time.  Due to Greek laws we can only do local sails in the bay with 12 passengers at a time.

However, the ship is equipped with sailing dingy, motorboat, two-person sea canoe and two diving tanks for our guest’s enjoyment.  The port has two simple and attractive taverners at the end of the gang plank. The Island offers many places of cultural and natural beauty which can be visited using the ships seven-seater car.
