This experience, in a nutshell

5 days on board with time to relax and enjoy the beauty of the sea. Thursday late morning we leave Cecina towards Elba.

 

We either stay 1 or 2 nights in Elba before crossing to Corsica with 1 or 2 nights in the Maccinaggio area. The return leads us to Capraia (1 night) before a return to Cecina. Some guests like the idea of an overnight crossing (conditions allowing) so we often depart at the end of the evening to navigate back under the stars.

 

All breakfasts and lunches are freshly prepared on board using quality ingredients. Dinners can be prepared on board or we can dine out depending on the wishes of the group.


This experience is for those who want to enjoy sailing, find time to relax on the ocean and do so in comfort.

 

As already stated, weather controls the routes. I aim to provide a trip as described but also aim to provide a comfortable ride along. Therefore, some destinations may not be reached during your trip and the order/route may change.

 

Guests need no experience, however if you prefer to lend a hand or learn about sailing, I am more than happy to help you do so. More experienced sailors can take as much a part in sailing as they like.

Con Antony abbiamo vissuto una vera e propria esperienza di vela. Nonostante il mare molto mosso, Antony ha gestito tutte le situazioni con esperienza e tranquillità. Con il suo “english mood”, Antony sa metterti a tuo agio e creare un’atmosfera sempre piacevole in barca. “Tutto sta nella testa” - ci ripeteva. Ogni pasto è stato pensato e preparato davvero bene, anche in movimento. Se dovessimo suggerire qualcosa allo skipper: un po’ più di ordine in barca, per accontentare tutti. Siamo davvero soddisfatti delle vacenza!

What a fantastic trip! We went to Elba and had a really enjoyable time. Antony has a huge amount of sailing experience as well as a vast amount of knowledge about the area. This meant he was able to keep all our family occupied from those that sail to those that don't normally sail! We got the boat going nicely but also found time to go snorkeling with cool fish at ship wrecks. He is a good cook but also knew where the good restaurants were. Cant recommend him or sailing round Elba enough!

4 nights on board in the Tuscan sea

Io e la mia famiglia per un totale di 4 persone (2 aduti/ 1 ragazzo di 15 anni/1 ragazzina di 11 anni), abbiamo passato 5 giorni con Antony e sua moglie Miranda, tra Capraia, Corsica ed Elba. Antony è un ottimo tuttofare: cuoco, skipper, idraulico, elettricista, narratore....Impossibile annoiarsi! Colazioni e pranzi apprezzati, con Antony e Miranda che ce la mettono tutta per accontentarti, basta chiedere, e se si riesce....why not?. Dietro quella parlata italoinglese, apparentemente un pò distaccata, si nasconde invece una persona disponibile a soddisfare le richieste di chi naviga con lui. Conosce bene i posti che propone e ti fa sentire al sicuro anche in condizioni di mare agitato, grazie alla sua esperienza e alla collaudata intesa con Miranda. Questa è una vacanza all'insegna della semplicità, durante la quale ci si gode la natura, il divertimento e si ha la possibilità di ammirare il territorio e il marte da altri punti vista. Un abbraccio Francesca, Fabrizio, Ale e Bea

Esperienza unica… Antony grande skipper e cuoco provetto ed è molto cordiale ed esaudisce ogni tuo desiderio tra quello di essere un marinaio a quello di andare con il sup tra pesci e relitti e farti rilassare con l’amaca in mezzo al mare! Stra consigliato sia il giro (arcipelago toscano e Corsica) che Antony!!
