This experience, in a nutshell

Hi, I'm Stefano the skipper, I'll take you to discover Sardinia and South Corsica, among cliffs overlooking the sea, pristine islands, beaches and historic villages, all this on board a splendid 17.5 meter sailing sloop, a one-off project by German Frers, with timeless lines.


The yacht underwent a complete makeover in 2020 and now looks as good as new.

With a Kevlar and carbon hull, carbon mast and boom, the yacht sails fast even in light winds; a slight breeze is enough to savor its racing skills, but it does not disdain challenging conditions for the pure pleasure of riding the waves at speed and in complete safety.

A true thoroughbred with the performance of a racer but with the comforts and spaces of a luxury cruising yacht.

The interiors, prestigious, spacious and bright, are equipped with every comfort; beautiful and elegant, it never goes unnoticed, comfortable and very suitable not only for navigation but also at anchor at anchor between aperitifs in the cockpit and baths in fantastic waters.



From Porto Rotondo we will set off for a unique experience, 90 miles of navigation divided into 7 stages,

Check-out: 8:00 AM

Leg 1

Porto Rotondo > Porto Cervo

We will leave Porto Rotondo in the late afternoon, after check in, galley and boarding of the whole crew, sailing for 3 miles in a northerly direction we will arrive after only half an hour at Cala di Volpe. The bay is characterized by a long beach and the famous hotel of the same name. Depending on the weather conditions and the time available, we can continue heading towards the Gulf of Pevero, a bay with crystal clear waters, or towards Porto Cervo which is 7 miles away, about an hour's sailing.

Total about 10 miles


Leg 2

Porto Cervo > Caprera

Once the moorings have been cast off, we sail towards the north-eastern part of the island of Caprera, entering the archipelago proper, to anchor at Cala Coticcio, a beautiful bay located north-east of the splendid Caprera. The bay, also nicknamed Tahiti, is made up of two small beaches and offers a strong contrast of colors between the granite rocks and the crystal clear water. After a stop for a pleasant swim, we will sail towards Porto Palma, about an hour's sail south, a beautiful roadstead protected from all winds and famous for being the base of the Caprera sailing school.

Here you can take an excursion with the tender to admire the coast, in this very jagged area, an ideal starting point for visiting the Island of Caprera by land and in particular Garibaldi's house.

It is in fact in Caprera that the Hero of the Two Worlds was exiled and died on June 2, 1882; near the house there is his tomb in the shade of trees he planted himself.

Total about 10/12 miles

Leg 3

Caprera > Spargi > Budelli

After an excellent breakfast at anchor, we will set sail from Porto Palma heading towards the island of Santa Maria, sailing between the island of Spargi, the island of La Maddalena and the island of Budelli. After about an hour we will moor at Cala Corsara. The bay is characterized by smooth granite rocks, crystal clear water and fine white sand. We have lunch at anchor, then continue towards the island of Budelli, where we can choose whether to moor at the buoys of the Maddalena Natural Park, in front of the famous Pink Beach, or continue a few miles and drop anchor in the bay of Santa Maria. This island is the northernmost point of Sardinia, the bay is crystal clear and the sandy bottom is good for keeping; On the starboard side of the beach there is a small pier where sailboats are not allowed to moor. Santa Maria is the only smaller island of the archipelago to be inhabited in the summer.

Total about 12 miles

Leg 4

Santa Maria > Bonifacio

The island of Lavezzi is 7 miles from Santa Maria or Budelli, we will get there in about an hour by sail, Mistral permitting; we are on the mythical Strait of Bonifacio. The most beautiful bay in Lavezzi is Cala Lazarina in the south-west part of the island. Lavezzi is uninhabited, but it happens to meet, even on the beach, some donkeys and cows.

Once we have weighed anchor we will continue our navigation in the Strait of Bonifacio towards the Corsican town of the same name. Bonifacio is a safe natural harbor in any wind, we will get there after 7 miles, about an hour and a half. From the sea you can see the white ridge, very different from the typical granite of the area, with the houses overlooking the sea and has the ancient fortified city in the upper part of the ridge. From here you can enjoy a splendid view of the Strait of Bonifacio and Sardinia.

Total approx. 15 miles

Leg 5

Bonifacio > Spargi

Leaving the port of Bonifacio we will head first to the island of Piana and then to the island of Spargi. The navigation to Isola Piana is short, just 5 miles, about an hour. After passing Punta di Sperono we can anchor to the south-west of the island in a large body of water with a sandy bottom of four to five meters. The strip of sand that connects Isola Piana to Corsica does not allow the passage of boats, the depth is a maximum of one meter, but it offers beautiful colors. Here we go ashore with the tender for an interesting visit to the Piana island, which is an integral natural park. Once we have set sail, we will leave the island of Lavezzi on the left and return to the Maddalena archipelago, passing between Budelli and Spargi. We can decide to stop for the night in Cala Ferrigno.

Total approx. 15 miles

Leg 6

Scatter > La Maddalena

Leaving the bay of Cala

Ferrigno we will sail inside the Maddalena park, stopping in the countless bays with crystal clear waters to land in the evening in the Port of La Maddalena, more precisely in Cala Gavetta. The island of La Maddalena is the largest of all the islands and here is the main town, a characteristic fishing village that in 2017 celebrated its 250th anniversary. Narrow streets and alleys intersect up to the tourist port of Cala Gavetta among historic buildings, restaurants and boutiques where we can find the best souvenirs and taste the delicacies of the local cuisine.

Total about 10 miles

Leg 7

La Maddalena > Porto Rotondo

After leaving the moorings from the Port of La Maddalena, we will sail towards Porto Rotondo leaving the Archipelago through the suggestive Passo delle Bisce, stopping for a break in front of the Island of Mortorio. Mortorio is located 3 miles east of Cala di Volpe and is famous for its wild landscapes, home to a large colony of seagulls and has also been the scene of numerous film shoots; the most beautiful roadstead is located in the south-west of the island. Less than an hour of navigation separates us from our final destination, Porto Rotondo. Evening on land in Porto Rotondo, among shops and typical restaurants.

Total approx. 15 miles
