Brief description of the holiday
The program contemplates a rather intense sailing trip of about 220 miles (around 35 miles per day). The first day we will sail for about 25 miles and arrive on Elba Island coasts where we will spend the night in one of the beautiful bays (to be identified depending on the weather conditions). The next morning we will continue the trip around Elba to spend the night in another bay or in one of the picturesque ports of the island (Porto Azzurro, Marciana Marina or Portoferraio). As an alternative we can sail to the island of Capraia (in this case, on the third day we sail directly back to Scarlino, 45 miles). The third and last day the last 25 miles brings us back to Scarlino.
Comet 41 Sport, a fast boat, about 13 meters long and 9/10 rigged. Although designed for racing, she is very comfortable. The large lockers (including a sail locker where sails and a tender can be stored easily) and large tanks (450 litres of water and 150 litres of diesel) allow long range sailing and comfortable cruises. The interior is very roomy with good head room (185-190 cm) and is divided into three cabins and two bathrooms. The forward cabin is the most comfortable, located in a separate area with en-suite bathroom. The dining area allows you to cook (kitchen with hob with three rings and oven) and seats 6 people comfortably. All cabins have large double beds, heating, electricity outlets, closet and reading lights. The amenities include Wi-fi (terrestrial) and a stereo. Her safety features are above the legal standards and include Epirb, automatic life-jackets, MOB signal, lifeline and safety harnesses. The electronics are also pretty comprehensive, with two GPS systems, two VHF radios (DSC), Navtex, autopilot (with remote control) and complete electronic instrumentation (including three maxi displays at the mast). Sails includes mainsail and jib (in black technora), genoa, spinnaker (with spinnaker pole) and a gennaker (armed on removable bowsprit). A dinghy with outboard engine completes the cruising kit.
