Captain Christos Filinis

Christos is a driven and responsibile sailor who continuously challenges and improves his skills, while making you feel right at home on board. He is a high-energy, and fun Skipper who is guaranteed to have you laughing while also learning more about sailing. He completed his Masters as a Civil Engineer here in Patras, Greece, and while there he became an avid Windsurfer- spending every spare moment on the sea, no matter the conditions. After working as an engineer Christos felt the sea calling and decided to answer by training and working as a qualified skipper. Since this career change in 2016, Christos has devoted his life to the sea and never looked back. He holds his RYA diploma as a Yacht Master Offshore Sailor, and as an RYA Sailing Instructor and takes great pleasure in sharing his passion for sailing with others. His patience and outgoing attitude makes him an extremely dependable coach and committed skipper. He is waiting to show you all there is to know about sailing the Greek waters.»
