Offshore trips are a great way to gain experience. The maximum number of guests is 6. The crew will consist of the captain and mate. Food and drinks on board are included, but transport to and from the yacht are not. Everyone can participate in the planning and navigation of the voyage. The crew will be happy to explain and will assign the guest to the active participation (if so wished) according to their level of competence. Beds are made upon arrival.
In 2018 we will be sailing from our berth at the Marina di Scarlino, to the Greek Dodecanese waters. Once in Greece she will cruise some 30 days around the island of Patmos with friends and family.
23 June - 6 July.
We leave Scarlino for Catania in Sicily. We will pass by Ponza, Ischia, Capri and the Almalfi coast. Then if possible Stromboli, where we can anchor underneath the vulcano. Finally we will enter the Straight of Messina en route to Siracusa in Sicily. Preferably we set sail with a crew allowing us to cover distance, so as to leave ample time to have some shore visits. Thus be prepared for night-time sailing, anchoring and exploring. You can arrive already on Friday 22 June to help prepare the boat. I will skipper myself on this leisurely trip guiding you through the seas whilst enjoying the art of sailing on this Grand Old Lady, to the fullest. The route we take depends on you the crew and our preferences. It will be a safe and relaxed journey taking us to beautiful places along the way. Age or handicap is no problem, but please contact me beforehand so we can decide together if this will be the kind of trip you should choose. Individual bookings available. (approximately € 1320 pp on cost sharing basis)
6 July - 13 July.
We will leave Saturday 7 July from Siracusa for the 320 nautical miles to Patras. Seas can be heavy during our crossing so be prepared for some serious sailing!. I will be accompanied by one of my best sailing mates, allowing you to either 'sit back and enjoy the ride' or participate actively in the day and night crossing. After resting somewhere around Patras we will set sail for the Corinthian channel, which weatherwise can be a challenge once we head out for Athens. So bring foulweather gear, although we expect the sun to always shine! Individual bookings available. (aporoximately € 660 pp on cost sharing basis)
