Great Stephen, regatta course in the pouring rain with sea formed and "barrel" from 30 knots of wind. I believe that only in this way can we really learn to navigate. All this always and in any case in safety and under his supervision.
Thanks also to Germano who guided us for the regatta we did the next day (this time under the sun). Great staff
If you are looking for a dream cruise, on a high-performance and very well maintained boat, with a nice skipper, pedagogue and full of humor (and not only Belgian), who knows how to create a link in the crew, find the right little restaurants in the ports, accompany you on hikes to see the sunset, do not hesitate, Bertrand's cruises are for you. And I tell him see you soon for a new adventure.
I would like to specify that the skipper was not Giampiero but Rather Fulvio. My experience was ok although given the size of the boat you have to have a great spirit of adaptation. I will definitely have another sailing holiday.
See you soon. Betty
Fabrizio and his yacht were not the skipper or yacht. It was replaced by Marco and a 46 Bavaria. A 44 or 46 while sleeping 8 would be too crowded. Water tanks ran out and we were 6. This will effect cost, if have to refill. Do not recommend 8 on a yacht this size. 6 was perfect. Mattresses could use upgrade. Didn’t sleep well because they were very hard. Accommodation ok, not luxury. Combusa basic. Crew filled in with what we wanted, paid extra. Beautiful scenery, great crew, had a memorable time. Would do again. Marco worked hard, enjoyed the trip
A week among crystal clear waters, suggestive coves, romantic towns, ancient hermitages, relaxation and good company. All sailing on a sailboat rich in history captained by Cesare, a very capable and experienced skipper, who will tell you endless anecdotes and stories of the sea. In addition, if you wish, it will involve you in the different aspects of navigation.
Together with him you will meet Carla, his companion and precious assistant in all the maneuvers that, with her sunny sympathy, kindness and constant good humor, is a fundamental presence on board.
Every day, between one bath and another, you can enjoy the excellent dishes prepared for you: Cesare has even prepared the tagliatelle made by boat ... with a rolling pin!!!
In short, thanks guys!
We had a really good time, the Dalmatian islands are gorgeous and sailing with you was a beautiful experience.

One of the most ingamba skippers I have known in my life. A person of heart and very technically prepared... always available and ready to help you in your time of need. A great man and a great skipper.
I met Simone on a sailing boat and immediately there was a great understanding between us, which led us to consolidate a strong friendship, born from the common passion for the sea and sailing, as well as from the sharing of the same ideals. Simone is an excellent skipper, capable both at a technical level and at the level of crew management. You spend completely to give your crew strong emotions, as only sailing can do. In navigation with him you will feel safe in all weather and even where many skippers tend to "slip", that is, the maneuvers in port, Simone knows how to face them calmly and lucidly, thanks to the years of experience gained. I would like to recommend it to the entire Sailsquare Community; having him as a skipper will be an honor and a privilege and you will not regret it.
Through this holiday it was possible to deepen important aspects of sailing and see new places (corsica and elba). The boat is suitable for those who want to deepen this sport and perhaps making two large islands such as Corsica and Elba in the same week can be a bit tiring. After the first days, where Giancarlo met the request of the majority of the hosts (even if he had warned us of weather conditions that were not entirely "touristy"), the holiday took hold in the best way and we were very well on the boat. In addition, by organizing the return crossing (elba-livorno) according to the climatic conditions, the skipper gave everyone security.
Max is a fantastic captain: among his qualities immediately stand out an extreme kindness and the willingness to meet all the requests of the crew, finding those solutions that make everyone agree and allow you to navigate in complete safety. Recommended for those looking for a holiday full of exploration and fun: his knowledge of the coves in which to dive and his ability to involve everyone in the evenings of celebration are exceptional, such as to make me return home really happy for the moments lived on vacation and with a phrase perhaps pronounced too low in a voice when I greeted him on the day of departure: THANKS MAX!
Vico is a talented young skipper. He combines sailing experience with great human skills, which make him a perfect captain for a cruise full of fun and relaxation. Working together at Crazysail has been really fun and his constant availability is a guarantee in teamwork. I can't wait to sail together again in the flotilla!
The solidity of Marco's sailing experience is perceived from the first moments and it is a pleasure to work with him in the flotilla. Experienced skipper, solid and reliable, manages to combine fun and safety for a dream holiday! Those who get on the boat with him can enjoy a wonderful experience in total relaxation.
Simone is an extremely attentive skipper, capable and with a great experience behind him. I learned a lot from him during the two weeks of flotilla in Crazysail, the comparison was daily and the exchanges always very interesting and I appreciated his careful way of managing the crew both from a safety and fun point of view. Who gets on the boat with Simone has a top holiday assured!
Federico is an enthusiastic and experienced skipper. Always ready to fulfill the demands of his crew, keeping safety first. It's a pleasure to work together and I can't wait to set sail for the next sail.
Milu and a skipper with all the letters! Fun professional and passionate about the sea the wind and sailing.
We shared summer 2022 in Croatia with crazy Sail and I couldn't wish to have a colega, friend more helpful is as capable as she is on the sea.
Skipper from 10 and praise, very prepared, nice and helpful. Fun holiday, we visited beautiful and characteristic places. Spectacular crew. As soon as you get on board you immediately notice the professionalism and deep knowledge of the navigation area of The commander Fra! Skipper and holiday highly recommended!!! Hello and to the next adventure commander Fra!
Simply Formidable, responsible and of an extreme kindness, for a week my son listened only to him entering his heart; the only thing I would like to add for Luca is THANK YOU, thank you for the wonderful experience you have passed to my son, me and all the crew!
Fabio is a very experienced and friendly skipper who cares about the safety and well-being of his crew. He knows the Pontine Islands very well and has been a constant point of reference for all of us. Definitely recommend!
