Brief description of the holiday
Based in the sheltered port of Trapani , easily accessible from the airports of Trapani and Palermo, based on sea and wind conditions, every day we will visit the enchanting islands of the Egadi archipelago.
In Favignana , a pearl immersed in the sea, a village that rises around a natural inlet with the traditional Mediterranean architecture of the island, we will discover Cala Rossa considered one of the most beautiful in the world, Cala Azzurra with its fine golden sand, the beach del Burrone and the cliff of Grotta Perciata , enjoying the blue of the sea and lots of sun.
Levanzo , crystal clear waters to swim in and coves and beaches to be discovered: Cala Tramontana, Cala Calcara, Cala Minnola .
Marettimo , the most suitable for nature lovers with its blue waters to explore, often inaccessible from the ground in Cala Bianca, Cala Nera, Cala Manione .
NB: An integral part of the crew will be the small and tender Tancredi, a little dog cuddling dispenser to anyone who allows it.
Beneteau Oceanis 430
Four double cabins and two bathrooms, this boat was designed by Philippe Briand thinking above all of the yachting aspect.
Particularly suitable for those who love comfortable cruises spent between long stops at anchor and large lunches with friends, it guarantees great safety in navigation.
Easy mobility on board and plenty of space reserved for the crew, both on deck and in the welcoming cockpit.
In the years this boat was built, real wood was still used for the interiors, with solid wood moldings, exposed drawers and upholstered ceilings.
Everything on the Oceanis 430 can be seen and pleases the eye.
The boat is still one of those that create a marine atmosphere and give its owner the pleasure of owning it.
On a sailboat it is supposed to have to use it as little as possible, but, if necessary, it must be absolutely reliable. For this reason, to propel the boat in transfers, we installed a new 50hp Volvo Penta D2-50 engine.
Equipped with the best safety equipment, over the years it has been constantly adapted to modern needs: photovoltaic and wind turbine to never fail the charge of our mobile phones and notebooks, autopilot, plotter for maximum assistance in planning routes, station wind, depth gauge.

Other important information
Respecting the simple rules that follow will make the holiday pleasant and free of problems and will allow us to fully enjoy what nature is able to offer us.
BOARDING is fixed between 5.00 pm and 6.00 pm on the first day of the week booked.
It is important to respect punctuality in order not to miss the initial briefing during which a series of preliminary information will be provided to all crew members.
LANDING is fixed between 8.00 and 9.00 of the last day of the week booked.
If any crew member needs to land in advance, we will arrange to make it possible.
THE PROGRAM: choosing to leave on a sailboat is the right occasion to enjoy some healthy relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and city noise. It is the possibility of coming into contact with nature, of giving the mind a deserved rest and traveling according to the philosophy of slow travel.
A trip on a sailboat also means above all freedom: the possibility of being able to change the program every day in relation to sea and wind conditions and to the liking of the crew.
LIFE ON BOARD : the boat is particularly suitable for comfortable cruises between long stops at anchor, aperitifs and lunches with friends and guarantees great safety at sea.
Navigation is organized so as to allow guests to enjoy the sun and unspoiled nature, as well as to navigate and learn the marine art.
THE KITCHEN : the kitchen management is entrusted to the guests who will choose what to cook during the holiday and will draw up a list to do the proper shopping, using the common cash.
The boat has a large area equipped with all useful accessories for the preparation of dishes that can also be inspired by the various cookbooks available.
EQUIPMENT : sports clothing, comfortable trousers and T-shirts; however, even in the height of summer, evenings at the sea can be cool, so it is advisable to wear a sweatshirt, a waterproof K-Way jacket and a pashmina scarf. Obviously swimsuits!
The goal of our cruises, far from urban centers, makes the management of the laundry difficult and not hygienically safe; for this reason we have chosen to ask guests to bring their own bed set (pillowcase, top sheet, bottom sheet with corners), a beach towel, one or two bath towels for personal hygiene. On board there are light duvets for cooler nights.
Ear plugs and eye masks for those who have difficulty sleeping with background noises and prefer to wake up a little later.
Biodegradable shampoo and bubble bath.
Avoid rigid suitcases or trolley cases that are impossible to stow, better to opt for a soft bag that can be easily folded.
FOOTWEAR : when sailing and during maneuvers it is a good rule to always wear a pair of shoes, preferably with a clear Superga sole. It is always a good idea to have two pairs of shoes in order to keep one pair exclusively for the boat and one for when you go ashore. Absolutely NO to shoes with high heels or wedges.
THE ACCESSORIES we recommend:
- sunglasses (preferably with a safety tie)
- plastic sandals to protect your feet from the rocks
- a good sunscreen with a high protection factor
- an after sun
- lip stick
CELLS AND TABLETS: for recharging, in every cabin there are USB sockets, it will be sufficient to bring the connection cable.
DON'T FORGET THE IDENTITY CARD and any other personal documents.
I wait for you on board. Luigi
