Brief description of the holiday
The cruise is developed over a weekend, preferring, weather permitting, overnight stay in the harbor and sailing. Boarding is at Punta Ala, one of the most beautiful Mediterranean Marine. We will leave early in the morning of Saturday and sail to discover the Island of Elba, visiting enchanting roads, where to stop for a sumptuous bath and for lunch or dinner in case of overnight stay, in full relax. We can visit new ports to live the life of the country, such as Porto Azzurro, Portoferraio, Marciana Marina ... full of traditions, history and numerous offers of fun. The duration of the stops, the choice of roads and / or ports vary according to the weather conditions and the desire of the crew to experience the new uncovered place. The skipper is a sailing school instructor - Esperto Velista LNI - and for those interested there will also be the opportunity to combine the holiday with the opportunity to practice the technique of sailing and practice navigation and boat management.
The Genesis, a project by Andrea Vallicelli, is a 43-foot boat of superior category that, thanks to its exclusive design and innovative technical choices, represents a historical evolution in the sailing world and for this, inserted in the Italian Nautical Design Museum. Winner of numerous competitions also against pure racing boats, the Genesis is an excellent cruise boat accompanying its guests in safety and comfort for all the seas of the world. It has three double cabins, two bathrooms and a large ovoid-shaped dinette with pull down table to form a huge double berth, for a total of 6 + 2 (8) beds, a walled linear kitchen with oven, fridge and freezer, a convenient and practical bow warmer and a large chart table. The interiors, rational and balanced, are of solid American cherry. I have been a ship owner since March 2017. I have done a complete refitting while maintaining the original design with the only exceptions of adding the bowsprit installation - to maximize performance with the Gennaker - and Webasto heating - to increase comfort even for winter sailing . I installed the best systems and equipment for navigation in maximum safety as the VHF DSC and EPIRB GPS. The Genesis, as well as exceptional for long range cruising, is also perfect for sailing school activities, armed with all the maneuvers and equipment for advanced management and regulation of the sail - oversized shaft with non-structural steering wheels , adjustable backstay, rails and mainsail wagons and maxi blocks Harken - to achieve high performance speed and power, in maximum safety.

Other important information
The best way to reach the Marina di Punta Ala is by car. If necessary we can organize a transfer from the nearby Follonica station. Remember to bring soft bag (no trolley) of specific shoes or anyway with soft white sole, as well as sun cream, hat, sunglasses and windproof waterproof jacket, swimsuit and towel. The boat has three double berths and offers guests the possibility of a double master cabin forward with bathroom and a double or one with double single beds aft with shared bathroom. A stern berth will be occupied by skippers leaving the dinette free for maximum comfort during the cruise. Guests must bring their own pillowcases and sheets / sleeping bag. For the galley we will organize the evening of check-in with the nearby supermarkets and local farmers for some special Maremma products. For any information contact me through the site.
