Brief description of the holiday
It is an initiative aimed at members, they will be asked to register with the association which aims to start sailing on multi-hull cabin cruisers and crew training.
After boarding, with full crew, a briefing is provided.
Once the formalities have been completed, the cabins will be assigned to continue with the knowledge of the boat, the safety equipment and the rules on board.
The association aims to offer a training course for the management of a boat.
During boarding we will manage various maneuvers from mooring, anchoring, rigging sails and all that is necessary to run a 14-meter catamaran.
The didactic part is also provided, correspondence, polar detection, headlights and lights, navigation lights, cardinal signals, etc.
There will be opportunities for fun and relaxation activities.

Catamarano Mattia&cecco 46
Mattia 46 is a prototype, the only one, built in 1997 but still in perfect shape, has 4 comfortable cabins with private bathroom, a very large living room with a table and two sofas that can comfortably accommodate 8 people. A kitchen with 4 burners, oven, double sink with slide plus a work surface of about 2 meters to comfortably manage the kitchen and two refrigerators. This year I equipped Mattia 46 with 800 watts of solar panels, completely changed the two engines with relative inverters and feet, the boat is equipped with epirb, ais and personally I have the src (short range certificate) for the use of equipment security (epirb and ais). The boat is equipped with 600 liters of water + watermaker, a generator of 4 kw plus 800 watts of photovoltaic panels, a tender of 3.30 meters with a 15 hp engine.
