EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: no sailing experience is required , the skipper will be responsible for navigation and safety on board. If you are interested he will be happy to teach you everything he knows about sailing and the places we are going to explore. During the cruise it will be NECESSARY that all the crew actively participate by helping the skipper in simple activities that will be explained on board, such as using the anchor remote control , fixing the fenders , putting the tender in the water and surveillance in navigation longer, especially at NIGHT . There will be no HOSTESS or CO-SKIPPER on board.
PROGRAM: the cruise program indicates the planned stops (except in cases of force majeure) so as to give an idea of the places we will visit during the holiday and the activities that can be carried out. All proposed land activities , including dinners ashore in restaurants, are not compulsory and it is always possible to stay on board the boat as an alternative. Changes to the program are possible only due to technical / administrative problems or related to the weather and on the unquestionable judgment of the skippers.
LIFE ON BOARD: the sharing of spaces and collaboration between people are the main characteristics of a sailing holiday. During the cruise, the crew will also have important responsibilities such as buying and embarking the galley, cooking, keeping the common areas clean and tidy (e.g. kitchen, cockpit and common bathrooms) and helping the skipper in maneuvers when requested. On board it is important to always pay attention to the consumption of fresh water and electricity , in the boats there will be large batteries and large tanks but in any case all the people on board will have to be careful not to waste fresh water or to forget the lights on . The water supply can only be done when we moor in a Marina . During our cruise we will anchor in the most beautiful bays and to reach land we will have the tender with the outboard motor available. The skipper will take care of guiding it during the transfers but will also be available to explain to the crew how to put it in the water and USE it so that you too can reach the beaches independently (we will be very close, you will also get there by swimming). NOTE: During the transfers with the tender it is possible that you get wet! Since the tender is the only means to go ashore, it is important to coordinate the whole crew in choosing the landing and return times , respecting everyone's needs!
