The offices are in Athens Greece. The booking center and yacht maintenance facility are also in Athens. The yachts are currently in the Athens area when in winter storage. During the summer the school operates from the Island of Poros. Yachts are parked on the dock or on the school mooring and students arrive via 'Flying Dolphin" fast ferry from Athens.
The school operates from the island of Poros and teaches sailing in the Southern Peloponnese area and along the Western Islands of the Cyclades. There are plenty of ports to visit and ample varying weather conditions to teach most students sailing.
The school is operating at full capacity at present and is turning away business. At the local level more instructors and more yachts will satisfy the demand. Expansion to different areas to teach within Greece is also a possibility. External expansion to other european countries such as Italy, Spain, Croatia and even Great Bristian should also be considered. Possible Franchising the brand may also be possible.
As the only ASA teaching facility in Europe and in the Mediterranean there is no other competition. Local sailing schools licenses do not have the internationally recognized status with international charter companies. The ASA does and has an excellent reputation.
