Brief description of the holiday
Free your mind and body!
What's more pleasant and relaxing than going sailing and talking about books. Listen and share some pleasant story with your boatmates?
Raise the sails the skipper will make us savor, with suggestions and anecdotes, the incomparable seascape and coastline that opens before us.
You do not need to be avid readers (or even experienced sailors) but if you think it's nice to share some interesting story or precious reading advice, it's your holiday! We will sail close to the high cliffs of the Rilke promenade, passing by the castles of Duino and Miramare ... The places of Italo Svevo and Umberto Saba, of Claudio Magris and Mauro Covacich ... to the magical Istria sung by Biagio Marin and Fulvio Tomizza .
Overnight in Island of Istria or Piran with dinner and evening in typical Istrian Konoba. Harmony, stories of sea and land, and of course sailing in a fantastic scenery!
Aphrodite 101 Bianca Yacht
Incredibly beautiful and fast ... The Aphrodite 101 is above all a racing sailboat, not a sea caravan. The extremely streamlined line, indoor deck flush deck, low free edge, high quality construction, 7/8 grace, fast and easy to run even in solitary. It's tight and long and on the web there is only the embarrassment of choosing to read the hugs to the qualities of this boat-myth. The renowned designers Jan Kjaerulff and Paul Elvström have made all their ideas and creativity in this project. Built in Denmark in accordance with high quality criteria, in maintaining strict classroom arrangements, with well-groomed interior trim made of mahogany wood, the Aphrodite 101 meets every wish of the sailor. The pleasure of sailing with an uncomplicated, yet sporty, boat is not only important for regatta sailors. The giving up of some small comfort will be rewarded with the thrill of a unique experience! The rug and sailing or the ability to seamlessly cling even in a narrow water mirror are a source of true sail pleasure. The Aphrodite 101 is, thanks to its beautiful lines and its exceptional speed, an integral part of the nautical world of Central Europe and Scandinavia. Almost 500 boats have been built to date, many sail on Lake Constance. But even in the Mediterranean, the USA and even South Africa some specimens are found. My model has been navigating in Sweden and Denmark, since 2011 in the Adriatic and is the only specimen currently in Italy.
