Brief description of the holiday
Last seat available for MANIf you are looking for a fun holiday full of new friends, a flotilla is for you. Three boats that always sail together, taking you every day to discover a new landing place. We would like to be able to combine the tranquility of the sea, sunsets, sunrises and new friends, with aperitifs, joy, music and dance. We will sail every day from one island to another showing you all the beauty of the Aeolian Islands and stopping in the most beautiful coves . You will see the sun setting from the bow of the boat, drinking a glass of wine … or a spritz! ;-) . Our skippers will undertake to give you the first notions of sailing. The most experienced and courageous will have the opportunity to steer a boat in the open sea under full sail, in total safety, feeling a happiness that you will keep for the whole winter.
WHO WE ARE
The ASD Flotilla was created by Alessio B. , former flotilla skipper on Sailsquare. Our Flotillas contain everything we love about the sea and sailing: parties on breathtaking beaches and coves, expert and reliable skippers, visits and shore excursions, new friendships and unforgettable moments. PROGRAM
We will meet on Saturday at 17.00, boarding from Marina di Portorosa (Tonnarella) , you will find the boats moored, cleaned and sanitized. The first evening we will stay in port to give the various crews the opportunity to get to know each other. Precisely because you will be tired from the welcome Pizza trip on one boat. In this way you will have time and time, before dinner, to arrange the galley and sort your luggage in the cabins, without having to think about anything else. The skippers will show you how to best organize the refrigerator.
We will leave early in the morning and we will head towards Punta dell'Asino. From the first morning you can immerse yourself in the transparent waters of the Aeolian Islands. We will stop in Cala Gelso and we will stay to relax until after lunch. From there we will move to go to Baia di Ponente where, whoever wants to, can go up and see the volcano and the sunset from the top of the island. Our aim is to introduce our crews and make them share the holiday. So we will always try to invite you all into one boat, so please be hospitable to others, they will be the ones to host you on the other days.
Leaving Vulcano behind us we will sail towards Filicudi . We will leave it on our right and head towards La Canna . A high rock in the middle of the sea with caves and colored backdrops that will host us for the day. In the late afternoon we will go to Filicudi, where the boats will remain in the Pecorini bay and the crew will be able to go ashore. Filicudi is characterized by a single small square where all people gather to have an aperitif at sunset. Right in this square there is a lady who cooks fried, rather famous in Sicily, and various fish dishes. In the evening, walking along the cliff with the skippers, you will find yourself in a bar where the DJ will give you the opportunity to have a drink and dance until late at night.
We will sail towards Salina and stop in Pollara , the bay of “il Postino”. The transparent waters and the pools formed by the rocks, near the slope that leads to the house of the film, will be the ideal place to stop for an aperitif before lunch, we will stay there to see the sunset and with the last lights of the day we will move towards the port. The Marina di Salina is modern and equipped to take showers without water limits and relax. We want to see the sunset and stay at sea until late drinking a glass of ice-cold wine at sunset. We will return to the port a little later and, if you wish, you can book restaurants in small groups or eat on the boat. In the morning, before leaving for Stromboli, we will stop to take Cunzato da Alfredo bread , an experience that everyone should try in Salina.
We will sail towards Stromboli , but we will stop for lunch in Lisca Bianca , right in front of Panarea. We will stop for lunch to calmly enjoy the Pane Cunzato taken by Alfredo. After having lunch we will sail towards Stromboli where we will arrive in the late afternoon. A quick walk in the village , a drink in the square, the sunset over the sea and finally the minibuses will take us to the Observatory , a restaurant overlooking the volcano. There will be an organized dinner there, we will all be together to see the volcano erupt (it happens every five minutes). We skippers look forward to that moment when, right at the first eruption, the whole crew expresses themselves with a single vowel "OOOHHHH !!!" . Even for us who see it often, it is an emotion not to be missed. Those who want can book the excursion and climb higher to see the eruption from closer.
We will leave early to take a short swim in Basiluzzo , right in front of Stromboli, to head towards Panarea. Cala Junco and its transparent waters await us. Swim, tranquility, smooth rocks and heavenly waters are the peculiarity of this bay. We will have lunch there and as in the other bays we will invite you to get off the boat and join the others . The boats, here as in the other coves, will always be within easy swimming distance and our skippers will always be happy to help you with the tenders. From Cala Junco we will reach the Panarea buoys. Here we have the opportunity to go and watch the sunset from the Raya , provided we arrive at the door before 7pm. On the other hand, those who want to stay on the boat to dance, drink and celebrate will be free to do so, in fact the moorers also offer a fast taxiboat service, included in the price of the buoy, which goes on until 6 in the morning.
We will set sail early to go to the transparent waters of Cala Pomice , precisely because of the pumice that was extracted in this cove, the waters are transparent and the bottom is sandy. We will stay here for a few hours and then stop for lunch on Vulcano in the last surprise bay. After lunch we will sail to Portorosa, refuel and dock at the port of departure. In the evening, aperitif-dinner and end- of-flotilla party to end this fantastic week in the best possible way, with a souvenir photo, music and dancing.
