who we are


Christos Paterakis, was not born in any hospital of Chania ,as some believe, but his existence is the result of limestone and granite distillation back in 1979. School was too confined for him and from an early age he‘d rather climb rocks and mountains as those really appealed to him. There was also the sea besides the mountains though. Having practically grown up inside the sea he was always attracted by water so he started sailing from a very early age , participating in many sailing rallies across the Aegean Sea, even obtaining first place in the International Aegean sailing Rally in 2011. He is a holder of the HORC Skipper Certificate.Today he is the captain of the ”Soupia” sailing boat during the summer months and the owner of Sailingsouthcrete company (the previous name of the company was Sailingcreta (the old web site was the winter he runs the Mountain Refuge of Kallergis located on the White Mountains at a 1700m altitude.He is also a mountain escort and owner of the Hiking Creta company. Moreover he is a journalist for the motorcycle magazine MOTO.

She is a civil structural engineer who quit her job in the office to pursue her travel and entrepreneurial dreams.Her main objective was freedom and a sailing boat is the means to freedom.So hers has come true.Apart from her degree in civil engineering, she is a holder of the HORC Skipper Certificate and she also has a master in tourism.Moreover, she started studying for a new degree in psychology two years ago.
