IMPORTANT COVID-19 REGULATIONS
Please be advised that one of the below COVID-19 health certifications are required to participate in sailing cruises in Greece.
a) a vaccination certificate, or
b) a negative PCR test in the last 72 hours, or
c) a COVID-19 recovery (antibody) certificate in the last 9 months, or
d) a negative rapid test in the last 24 hours. If you do not have one of the above, then you must take a COVID-19 self-test the day before sailing and submit the results using the official Greek government form which you can find and download here.
Greek citizens are still obliged to undergo a Rapid or self-test within 24hours before embarkation even if they have a vaccination, PCR or antibody certificate.
SENDING YOUR CERTIFICATIONS
It is essential that we have the certification at least the previous night before the cruise in order to facilitate the check-in process and avoid delays in the scheduled departure.
Please send your COVID-19 health certification to our email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name and the date of the cruise.
If you do not have a certification and are required to take a self-test then please try to print the self-test statement, fill the information in and send a photo to the above email.
You can ask your hotel concierge to help you print the statement or you can pass by our office or boats (look out for the green Polco sailing flags at the port) and we will give you a hard copy of it for you to sign after you do the test and then send to us.
Polco staff will be happy to assist you to arrange your travel requirements and will make sure to remind you of the latest COVID-19 requirements.Should you need clarifications about the process, do not hesitate to contact Stavros at +30 6978 248217 and he will assist you in anything you need.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Your health is our top priority, and we have put special measures in place to keep all our guests safe both during and after their cruise.
As the world navigates the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we at Polco Sailing are continuously following the latest advice and recommendations from the Greek Government to ensure that our cruises are operated in a safe and clean environment.
- Vaccination - Polco crew has been fully vaccinated as of June.
- Wellness Checks - Employees receive daily wellness checks to ensure they are healthy and symptom-free. If you or anyone in your group is experiencing symptoms, we will work directly with you to cancel or reschedule your tour.
- Stringent Cleaning - We’ve increased the frequency of disinfecting surfaces and high traffic areas between each cruise, and hand sanitiser will be available to all of our guests.
- Social distancing: This was never a problem at Polco sailing since we have always limited our yacht capacity to a small number of 10 passengers. The only exception our larger 55’ (~16,5m) yacht NIKI L, which we limit to a max of 14 passengers for your safety and pleasure.
