Swing’n’Sail Vol.2019 _August-September was a blast!
This journey ended with a quote that Swing Sailors truly shared for one more time: “You have to experience this event to understand why it is so special”. Special thanks to every Swing Sailor that left a piece of his/her heart on this dancing event and to ionionsails.com and the skippers for making this vacation even more unique! Let’s make more legendary Swing’n’Sail sea tales together.
When summer season comes to an end, Swing’n’Sail Vol.2 strikes again , giving a boost to our summer spirit for much longer! Swing’n’Sail’s recipe is simple: a group of Lindy Hop advocates-this time dancers from Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Korea, Australia, Belgium, Thailand, England, the U.S., France, Russia, Austria, Greece- carry their dancing shoes, bring their best mood with them and mingle to unveil what is so special about the only Lindy Hop floating festival that happens in Greece.
Our destination this time? We set sail on the mesmerizing blue waters of the Ionian Sea- Lefkas port our starting point and a treasure hunt accompanied our journey to the Greek Islands –Paxoi, Antipaxoi, Kefalonia, Ithaca islands our destinations; each day was a different story to tell, a totally new setting to discover and another mystery clue to collect. Music, and dancing as well as quality time, fun water games and relaxation on sail and in the sea our daily treasure. Irene Ragusini and Ben White, our guest teachers, offered cool moves and choreos in the workshops to spice up our dancing but also danced with us endlessly and everywhere!
During the day, the dancers turned into Swing Sailors with the help of our experienced skippers and they formed not only the Swing’n’Sail crew but also a group of friends in no time! And, when we reached the port, a brand new island to unravel and a special surprise event for our crew. An outdoor party with a live band, a “Greek dancing class” in a lovely spot on Paxoi Island, many special Lindy Hop parties on Kefallonia, Ithaca, Lefkada islands and a stay on a small, private location on the Ionian sea with lots of moments of snorkeling and watersports, barbeque on shore and a Lindy hop beach party, only a few of the highlights of Swing’n’Sail this time.
