Volos & the Sporades location

Sporades Yacht Charter is based in Volos in Greece, and this is the main base of the yachts being chartered. Volos is the main urban centre on the Pilio peninsula. The gulf is known as the Pagasitikos (pronounced "Pa-ga-si-ti-KOS"*). South of Volos, just before leaving the gulf, is the small island of Trikeri, and further south is the island of Evia. The Sporades are further east, beginning with Skiathos.

*A lovely song in Greek about the area repeats the word clearly a number of times. To listen to it, click "The Pagasitikos" by the Winter Swimmers (Hemerini Kolimvites).
