Brief description of the holiday
A week between nature and relaxation to discover historic villages and wild coves. We will sail in one of the most fascinating and uncontaminated seas in Italy.
• What style of vacation will it be?
Relaxed and comfortable, we are not in the America's Cup
• What will a typical day be like?
In the morning fractional wake-up (everyone when they want), breakfast in the dinette or in the cockpit, dip in the water for a complete awakening and departure around 9:30/10:00. Lunch while sailing or in the bay and selection of the location for the night (Rada or Marina). Afternoon free for sporting activities, games, land exploration or a good book lying in the hammock. Dinner on land or on the boat and good night.
• How much navigation will there be and how will it be divided?
Depending on the miles we will have to travel, the hours of navigation will change ... it is understood that the weather conditions are the basis of a safe holiday
Franchini Atlantide 45L
The Franchini 45 is a real limousine of the sea that belongs to a type of vessel inspired by the characteristics widespread in Northern Europe, but reinterpreted in a typically Mediterranean key thanks to a meticulous study of on-board ergonomics and deck plan carried out by the famous designers Massimo Franchini and Roberto Starkel. The Franchini 45 is therefore characterized by an out of the ordinary ability that does not in any way affect the sailing performance, since it is a fast boat in all conditions, fun at the helm and extraordinarily comfortable and safe.
The rigging is a large surface cutter (104 m2). The maneuvers are facilitated by the adoption of rolling systems. The vocation of long-distance cruising can be seen from the capacity of the water and oil tanks, 1100 and 500 liters respectively, capacities that are really difficult to find on these sizes. The interiors are on various levels, with a spacious saloon in a central position, master cabin aft and two double cabins forward
Wonderful and fascinating boat, all Teak redone, walkways, cockpit and stern, electric furler, N° 7 winches all ST, 3 of which are electric, all instrumentation is both internal and external, air conditioning, 7kw generator, engine compartment soundproofing , hydraulic aft gangway, davit for outboard engine, bimini, canopy, rigid vang, separate dinette with caret table, two forward cabins (double and bunk) and large double bed with bathroom aft

Other important information
You will find sheets, pillowcases and pillows on the boat, there are also towels but I recommend bringing your own beach towel. We have some masks, snorkels and fins but I recommend bringing your own equipment or at least your own snorkel.
On the boat there is a stand-up paddle, an electric scooter and a fishing rod for those who want to try their hand.
Don't forget to bring rubber-soled shoes and a waterproof item like a waxed one in case of bad weather. If you plan to take long baths, I suggest you bring a snorkel shirt.
On the boat, water is precious, bring marine soap/shampoo. Another precious thing on a boat is electricity, so I would suggest rationalizing the equipment that needs recharging as much as possible.
I suggest earplugs and a mask for the night. As a suitcase, use a non-rigid bag or trolley (possibly).
