This experience, in a nutshell

A sailing holiday is life in the open air to experience the sea in safety and freedom! 

We will sail near the high cliffs of the "Rilke promenade", in front of the castles of Duino and Miramare.  The

places of James Joyce and Italo Svevo up to the sea of the magical Istria sung by poets. A weekend in close contact with the sun, the water and the fantastic nature that surrounds us. 

Sailing along this stretch of coast offers the blue of the sky and the blue of the sea, the colorful landscapes of the ancient villages of Venetian origin and all the shades of green of the lush nature.

It's finally time for a dip in the most intense blue!

An unmissable experience to savor the charm of sailing and discover the magic of this area. 


Harmony, tales of sea and land and lots of sailing in a fantastic setting! 

We will sail to a very special and unique place:

- We start from the mouth of the Timavo, the mythological river which, after an underground journey of about 40km, flows abundantly in S. Giovanni di Duino, in a luxuriant natural basin already known in Roman times as Lacus Timavi.

- We will be able to see the wonderful Trieste Karst in all its wild beauty from the sea. The Škocjan Caves, due to their vastness and richness, were the filming location during the saga of "The Lord of the Rings".

We will sail in the waters where every year, in October, the largest regatta in the world takes place, the famous Barcolana!


We will find ourselves in the watershed of three worlds, both from a cultural-historical point of view, and from an environmental point of view for flora and fauna: the Mediterranean/Latin world, the Slavic/Balkan world and the imperial Germanic world. From here, to the east, the Balkans begin and the rocky coast that reaches as far as Greece, while to the west, the long sandy beaches that reach Puglia stretch out! 

Do you want to find out more curiosities? I'll be waiting for you on board!

The holiday is also dedicated to those who have no sailing experience!

Perfumes and wonders in the fantastic Gulf of Trieste


Teresa M.



Paolo si è reso disponibile a spostare la gita a causa del troppo vento. Nonostante questo ci ha fatto fare un giretto in barca fino alla foci del Timavo. È stata comunque una bella esperienza in ottima compagnia. Paolo è molto simpatico e ci ha spiegato tante cose. Adesso non vediamo l'ora di provare la vera esperienza. Grazie Paolo!

Club regatta in the extraordinary Gulf of Trieste


Alberto D.



Paolo è stato un ottimo skipper, piacevole compagnia nei momenti di relax, capitano appassionato durante la regata. Con pazienza ha insegnato a noi due principianti terminologia, manovre e regole base per muoversi in barca e con la barca.
