This experience, in a nutshell

A week wandering in the Tuscan Archipelago, between the Island of Elba, Capraia and Corsica. Lots of sailing, sea and new friends to explore the wonderful and wild bays of this corner of paradise in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Imagine yourself sitting there quietly on the starboard side while the profile of the coast receded and became small on the horizon leaving behind the traffic of the cities, the early wake-up call in the morning to go to work, the annoying colleagues, the queues at the post office and the supermarket... Is there anything else to add? 🙂

We will start our week with Elba and its countless coves, coves, ravines and beaches of all kinds. Once we have recharged our batteries and recharged our spirits, we will point the bow of the boat towards the island of Capraia.

THE ADVANTAGE OF LEAVING DIRECTLY FROM THE ISLAND OF ELBA?
Our port of embarkation is located in the north-eastern part of the island and is connected to the mainland by sea, thanks to the ferries that connect the port of Rio Marina to that of Piombino. The journey takes about an hour and tickets can be purchased online, by telephone or directly on site. The number of trips intensifies in the vicinity and with the arrival of the high season: in July and August there are ten daily trips from 8am to 7pm. The real convenience is that you can park your car in one of the many car parks and garages in Piombino and then once you get off the ferry you are already in front of our boat... and YOUR HOLIDAY STARTS IMMEDIATELY!

We'll pass through the cetacean sanctuary where dolphins often enjoy accompanying the boat as it sails the waves. Before sleeping in the harbor in the starlight, there will be an aperitif at sunset at Cala Rossa, so called because of the rocks that literally explode at sunset.

We will then head to the coasts of Corsica to explore the wonderful and wild bays of this little-trodden corner of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It will be a twenty-mile crossing on the open sea ploughing through the waves while the sun, the sea and the wind transport us to another dimension.

It is a holiday suitable for everyone, from friends to families, from sailing lovers to those who may have decided to give it a try this year.

Esperienza bellissima!! L’organizzazione perfetta, nonostante il tempo, che non era certo dei migliori, gli skipper sono riusciti a trovare dei posticini riparati e carini dove poter far avvicinare le barche e creare momenti di incontro tra i partecipanti. Il nostro skipper Angelo super gentile, simpatico e di esperienza! Che dire….sicuramente prenoterò un’altra esperienza con marmaglia!
