Our family of four (kids ages 12 and 10) has just spent a memorable five days aboard Evelyn May doing the RYA Competent Crew course. We were uncertain whether we would be able to get away with all the Covid restrictions in place, but Corfu felt very safe, the boat was scrupulously clean and the No Stress team has meticulous Covid procedures in place.
On board they had thought of everything- beach towels etc.
Our lovely trainer Valentina looked after us so well and broke the course into small chunks so that we never went too long between swim stops in breathtakingly beautiful bays. She also ensured that we always ate at the best Tavernas and visited the best ice cream shops.
A massive thank you to Sam for all his organisation and to Valentina for her kindness, knowledge and sense of humour! Looking forward to RYA Day Skipper already!

We did a RYA competent crew course with Valentina (there was another person doing Day Skipper course at the same time as well). We had no idea what to expect but it was awesome! She was really experienced, patient, well organised, encouraging and very structured and clear in her teaching and instructions. We felt very comfortable and safe with her onboard Evelyn May for the whole week!

The entire booking process was smooth and Sam was quick to respond, always ensuring everything is taken care of (including transport from and to the airport). Highly recommend No Stress Yachting for both complete beginners and experienced sailors!

Three great days onboard the Evelyn May, with our super-skipper Valentina, discovering Corfu & Greece mainland. Wonderful lanscapes and colors, amazing snorkeling sessions, funny jumping competitions from the boat, and really happy to support for sailing. In a very professional way, Valentina has adapted our planning with the weather forecast and we have always felt safe despite some storms. Now that the kids have experienced sailing in such good conditions and company, they want to do more ;) Many thanks again Valentina!! And as well Sam & Jo for the trip preparation. Hoping to see you again!

I VERY HIGHLY recommend No Stress Yachting! In October of 2019 we (a mom & dad, and 2 teen daughters) decided that we would like to go to Greece, sailing on a boat with a captain. Somehow, I stumbled upon No Stress Yachting, and after reviewing the company and reading a few (very positive) reviews, I got in touch with Sam, and we arranged a week of sailing for the summer of 2020. Well, you can guess what happened next, and we couldn't come until this summer of 2022.

From the very beginning, communication with Sam was a breeze. He was quick to answer emails, and no question was too strange. Upon arrival he had arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport, which was very helpful. When we got to the marina, we were warmly greeted by Sam and his lovely wife Jo. They had already done some grocery shopping for us, and directed us to a nice nearby restaurant for lunch (we were famished after a very early flight from Schiphol airport where the lines and wait times were insane), while they took care of our luggage and brought that on board.

After lunch Sam immediately sprang into action, and was ready for take off! He asked us if we wanted to go anywhere in particular. The answers was no, because we were just super excited about being there, and any destination was all good. So we let him take a look at the winds and currents, and come up with an itinerary. This proved to be a good formula for us. We didn’t have to make decisions, other than: when should we swim? How about lunch? Sail now, or wait a bit? What a relaxing break from regular life…

In the end, we had a total blast that week. Sam skippered us to wonderful locations, ranging from very pristine quiet beaches with crystal clear waters for excellent swimming, to busier ports (such as Gaios on the island of Paxos) where the girls could do a little shopping at the cute boutiques there. We had great winds, and did a fair bit of sailing. There is not much more peaceful than hearing just the wind and rippling water. Sam also took care of making reservations for dinner at the local tavernas. Excellent food with fresh fish and lovely appetizers.

To anybody who has never been to Corfu, and is thinking about going: Just watch the tv show The Durrells, and you’ll fall in love with the beautiful scenery of the region. And for anybody looking for a sailing vacation: Just go for it, and book with Sam. You won’t regret it. We sailed on the 440 Nautitech catamaran, which offered plenty of space for the 4 us + skipper. It did not have air conditioning, but we didn’t miss, even though we are super spoiled, and live in A/C pretty much year round in Florida. There are 2 refrigerators on board, and plenty of power to charge our phones (important detail for our teens).
We are now home again, and think back to a most wonderful vacation with absolutely no stress, and we hope to come back. Thanks so much Sam and Jo!

We were fortunate enough to have Sam as our skipper. He was a complete expert on sailing and the area, and he made the whole experience absolutely fantastic for our crew of seven. Sam knew the best spots for swimming and the best restaurants in every town we went. We were able to truly enjoy our time on the boat because of him. The boat was in excellent condition, very comfortable, and fully furnished with snorkels, paddle boards, kayak, etc... which made the experience so much better. No Stress was extremely flexible with our dates and times. They helped us put together a fantastic itinerary. If you are looking for a true hassle free sailing experience this is it. So glad we found this company!

From calling Sam, everything was made very easy and with a lot of options (where we wanted to go, ordering food for our trip, extra paddleboards etc). Once onboard, we had the very lovely Valentina looking after us, teaching us to sail, recommending restaurants and making it all 'no stress'. We sailed as a family of 5 to Paxos and Anti Paxos, exploring caves, staying in beautiful locations and loving every minute - we would highly recommend this small and friendly company. We may have to return as we did not get to see the dolphins, and make it further to explore more islands.

We had a fantastic day with an even more fantastic No Stress Yachting crew. It felt like sailing with old friends and at the same time everything was very professional. The whole experience left an unforgettable feeling and a desire to come back again.

No stress yachting team provided us with a wonderful day trip by sailing around the island. During the trip we had stopped at many different locations to have a swim or discover the nearby water caves. They have tons of different accessories to make your trip more enjoyable such as stand up paddle (SUP), inflatable donut or snorkeling gears. The crew is very experienced, easy going and and lovely people. If you contemplating having a sailing experience during your stay in Corfu, then look no further than No Stress Yachting, I highly recommend them.

We set this trip up months in advance. Every communication was professional and informative. We knew what to expect long before we arrived. They even asked us what food we wanted to have on board before we arrived.

Every time we looked at the weather, it was sunny and beautiful. Right up to 10 days before the trip when everything changed! The rain was on the way! Sam even offered to change the sailing week until early next year. But we went anyway.

Somehow, Valentina Vela, the skipper of our boat, found a way to make every day we sailed a pleasure. We were able to squeeze out some sun and she found us places to swim, sheltered coves to hang out in and whatever else she could while keeping us safe. What a great trip we had. The two of us didn’t want to learn to sail, we just wanted to enjoy the water. And that’s what we did!

Thanks, No Stress Yachting, Sam and Valentina.

I had an absolute fabulous week sailing around Corfu, visiting many bays and coves; finally completing the practical day skipper course under the brilliant instruction of Valentina who made me feel very welcome and nothing was to much bother. The training was structured and comprehensive for each task. I was able to spend more time practicing manoeuvres in areas that I felt I needed extra training, such as safely anchoring and parking the boat in different situations. Valentines experience, seamanship and knowledge is vast and I came away feeling ready for my first bareboat experience. The week was very pleasurable and fun!
This was all expertly backed up by a well organised on shore team headed up by Sam.
