Stress balance sailing cruise with Uta Sophie
The choice of coaching and sailing
As a coastal child, Uta Sophie has turned her passion into her profession and simply transferred her coaching to the water, or more precisely, to sailing boats and yachts.
Through her sailing training and countless cruises on the Baltic Sea, in Croatia or Greece, she has been able to experience for herself how well sailing works against stress and anxiety and how effectively a sailing trip can be to solve interpersonal conflicts.
Through the unique combination of sailing, sports and relaxation in beautiful maritime landscapes, she has become aware of how simple and yet so effective a sailing time-out is.
In her opinion, there is hardly a better and more beautiful way than sailing with the wind towards the sun, letting go and enjoying the moment in the here and now. The experience of adjusting to your fellow sailors to form a team that can navigate the boat safely and still have time for yourself is priceless.
It is exactly these experiences that she would like to share with you.
More about stress
The phenomenon that is called “stress” today has many faces. Its symptoms, the effects on us and our environment, the interactions between professional and private life, are as individual as we are ourselves. Just as individual are our resources, coping strategies and how we deal with daily hassles! So there is no “one” way to deal with stress.
What will it bring to you
On this trip you will learn to let go and reduce negative spirals. We help you to find out your individual causes for overload and to strengthen your abilities so that you are optimally armed against the stress triggers in your life. Negative stress only arises when our personal resources are no longer sufficient to cope with everyday stress and/or critical life events.
This permanent stress can even lead to illnesses and disorders, as the body has lost the ability to self-regulate.

The ionian - A sailing paradise
Like Ulysse, you will sail to Lefkas, Ithaca, Kefalonia. Grilled sea bream, calm sea, fresh vegetables, turquoise water, sunshine, kindness and hospitality, you will find everything that makes Greece such a wonderful country.
We have fallen in love with it, so it is with pleasure that we share it with you.
You will have this feeling of change of scenery, of softness, we are well there in these islands.
Lefkas with its imposing fortified castle and surf spots; Ithaca, the island of the poets and birthplace of Ulysse; or the bewitching landscapes of Meganisi, Kefalonia and Kastos.
During your cruise, you will be seduced by the historical and natural heritage all around you. Nature is not to be outdone, in the middle of crystal-clear water, from the pine forests to the water’s edge, sublime beaches and creeks.
Preveza - Your departure point
The place we love ♥
When we arrived in Preveza, someone told us that this city is like glue, we planed to spend a few days there, but at the end we stayed much longer…and we confirm that this is the reality! The city is pleasant, the taverns are delicious, the narrow pedestrian streets invite you to stroll, the atmosphere is friendly and there is no mass tourism here. Preveza is definitely the Greece we love.
Having a drink on the terrace, facing the sea, then savor a fish in a tavern, and finally walk around its pedestrian streets, still alive once the sun goes down, nothing better to start your holiday. We recommend it!
How to get there
Preveza has an international airport located 7 km from the town quay or Preveza marina where we would be.
If you can’t find a direct flight, you can go through Athens, Corfu, Kefalonia, UK or Germany.www.skyscanner.com
From Athens, count 5h40. The journey will cost you 30€ per person and is very pleasant.
Rent a car in Athens for a week if you are at least 4 people. The cost is around 100 €.
We advise you to pass through Athens on your way to or from the airport and spend 2-3 days there. This cosmopolitan and fascinating city is full of small streets where it is good to stroll but also to discover its heritage.
Do not hesitate to ask us for our good tips for a stay in Athens.
Possible sailing routes
Another reason for us to have chosen Preveza as a departure point is the two different possible routes you can take for a week cruise. A two week cruise would actually be ideal as it allows you to both areas.
In any case, we will discuss with the group which routes would be more suited.
The northern route (Parga, Paxos, Anti-Paxos, Sivota, Murter, Corfu) allows us to sail in a open sea with more regular winds. The coast south of Pargas is particularly beautiful and attractive. We can also visit the islands of Paxos and Anti-Paxos and possibly Corfu if the wind conditions are good or if we have two weeks in front of us.
The southern route (Lefkas, Meganisi, Itaki, Kastos, Kalamos), allows you to cruise in a protected area from offshore with relatively small distances between the islands. The winds are a little less regular, especially in the off-season. The islands all have their own charms with many possibilities of creeks and anchorages.
