Sailing Holidays in Russian Bay
Russian Bay or Daskalia bay is a well protected bay just 1.4 miles West of Poros. In the entrance of the bay is the tiny Daskalia island with a chapel. Anchor in about 6.0 meters wherever there is space. The bottom is sand and weed, good holding once through the weed. If the wind is variable or the anchorage is busy, it best to take a shore line to one of the rocks. The bay was named Russian because in the last century there was a Russian naval base here. The ruins of their storage facilities, ashore, can still be seen. In the entrance of the bay is the tiny Daskalia bay island with a chapel. Although a very pleasant anchorage, the water is murky and one’s peace is disturbed by the frequent wash from the ferries. Poros town is an hour and a quarter on foot, but quicker by dinghy.
