Brief description of the holiday
For the week of the shooting stars we have thought of a special cruise that will allow us to admire them from a unique environment: we will be at anchor in a beautiful bay far from the lights, where we will be able to enjoy all the magic of the stars, which will keep us company throughout the week; we will be able to admire them even during the night navigation that we will make on the return. During the cruise, moving by boat along the wonderful coasts of Northern Corsica, we will have the opportunity to visit the characteristic fishing ports and the ancient villages of Còsi , whose beauty will be the setting for a dinner or a romantic walk.
We will sleep at anchor in the most enchanting places, or we will moor in the port to visit the places and enjoy an excellent aperitif and a tasty fish dinner.
Even when we are at anchor it will always be possible to go ashore with the service rubber dinghy (our eco-tender with electric motor).
The week will take us to visit many places: Centuri Port, a small and very pretty fishing port, the splendid bay of Marina dei Giottani and the incredible black beach of Nonza.
. Saint Florent , originally a fishing port, which today is a popular holiday resort thanks to its proximity to the famous Patrimonio vineyards and one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean coast, the magnificent Saleccia located in the center of the Désert des Agriates , which will be a destination for a nice tour.
The Désert des Agriates is a wild and uncrowded area. Human presence in the area is very limited, the bays and gulfs of the desert can only be reached by sea or by long dirt roads. At the end of the desert is Ile Rousse, the last stop on our cruise.
Disembarkation is scheduled for Saturday morning, when we will return to the base after a splendid night sailing.
The exciting navigation under a celestial vault illuminated by shooting stars will be the most beautiful memory of this splendid adventure.
Life on board is relaxed and fun, new friends are made and together we collaborate in the management of common life.
Those who want to enjoy the sun and those who want to learn will find in our skipper a valid teacher who will willingly give the helm to those who want to try their hand at running, alongside it with valuable advice.
On board, everyone can freely choose whether to relax and enjoy their holiday in complete relaxation, or whether to try to get involved by experimenting with the maneuvers or taking the helm (with the supervision of the skipper).
Everyone is asked only to participate in the life on board , each as he or she wants and can do, in an atmosphere of fun and mutual collaboration. A crate will be created on board to support the costs of galley, ports and fuel.
The activities of our association have always been oriented by the ethical values that are the basis of our daily actions: we sail according to the principles of responsible tourism, with respect for the environment to guide us. Our main fuel is the wind and our energy is solar.
On board we will make the separate collection of waste and we will not use disposable plastic dishes.
