Sail from the Lagoon of Venice crossing the bay to explore the beautiful Croatian city of Trieste and the Slovenian harbour town of Pirano.

Join Kairos in the beautiful floating city of Venice, Italy and sail on to visit the ancient harbour cities of Piran and Trieste. Trieste is one of the most picturesque and romantic places in Croatia and with the ancient Slovenian city of Pirano sitting just across the Bay.

The Floating city

Starting in the city of Venice is a truly spectacular way to start a wonderful cruise onboard Kairos. This ancient city is built on 100’s of small islands connected by bridges, waterways and canals. Take romantic trips on the famous Gondolas, visit streets packed with museums and galleries and dine at a plethora of bars and restaurants. Voted one of the must-visit cities on the planet, what better way to begin your Mediterranean sailing holiday.

Sail onto Trieste and immerse yourself in this Italian harbour city surrounded by the Slovenian border. Trieste has a colouring history having been under various reigns and occupations over the years including the Romans, Austrians and Germans, only returning to Italy in 1954. This makes the city a cultural delight and a wonderful jumble of architectural and ethnic influences. The churches here are breathtaking and range from Greek Orthodox and Helvetic Evangelist to Europes largest synagogue. Wander through narrow winding streets and walk out into vast Piazza’s buzzing with cafes and shops. Visit ancient caves, Roman theatres, war museums and art galleries.

Hop back aboard Kairos and sail across the border to Pirano. Oozing with culture and history, this stunning county of Slovenia is home to numerous caves and ancient stone age sites with remains dating back to 6000-2000 BC. Anchoring along this coastline gives you the perfect backdrop for Mediterranean sunbathing, taking a swim from the boat, snorkelling the reefs and enjoying Kairos’ watersports equipment!

Wildlife in these waters is rife; expect to see common dolphins swimming in the bows, whales gliding on the horizon and turtles bobbing in the surf. Snorkelling is rich with marine life and with crystal clear waters, take a waterproof camera for great shots and forever memories. As with all sailing holidays, the itinerary is not set until closer to the time but be assured that this cruise will see you exploring the beauty of the Mediterranean coast.

With Kairos as your base, great food included and some beautiful bucket list locations; this is a holiday experience of a lifetime and one not to be missed!

Kairós

Guest berths: 16 Rig: Bermuda Schooner

Registered in Rotterdam but spending her days sailing the Med, Kairós was purpose built as a charter vessel in 2007, as a two-masted, 38m staysail schooner.

This beautiful luxurious schooner was designed by Klaus Röder who based his design on a classic yacht whilst keeping up with the modern day schooners; built for performance sailing and guest comfort. Kairós offers a total of 7 comfortable en-suite double cabins and 1 twin cabin for up to 16 guests, these private cabins have either a double bed or single bunks and all have air-conditioning. The deckhouse has its very own small bar whilst below decks offers still more space to relax, from the saloon with its plasma TV to its very own library.

Built with luxury in mind, the outline on deck is of teak and mahogany with plenty of space to sun-bath, read a book and enjoy the views. All the sails are electronically retractable, so no need to learn the ropes here. (The crew are, however, more than happy for guests to get involved with the operating and sailing of Kairós as much as they would like!)

An admiralty ladder provides the perfect place to jump off into the warm Mediterranean waters, have a swim and climb back aboard with ease. Kairós also offers her guests the options of using her water skiing, wake-board, tube riding and snorkelling equipment!

The professional crew consists of the Skipper, first mate, mechanic, bosun, cook and 2 stewards, so you will most certainly be looked after during your time aboard Kairos.
