SCI-spring-flotilla-2019 - Sail Charter International

Spring Sailing in Italy 2019 – Sailing the Tuscan Archipelago

27th April – 4th May 2019
Location Italy: The Tuscan Archipelago and Elba

Our „Spring Sailing in Italy“ week is an informal flotilla/regatta group event, with the focus on having a fabulous fun holiday, catering for skilled and novice sailors alike – a challenging and enjoyable fun experience. We will be „sailing with friends“ and „cruising in company“ around the Tuscan Archipelago and the island of Elba.

What is provided:

– an adventure holiday under sail in a relaxed atmosphere – a guided/planned sailing route with a supporting program of events and activities for all skippers and crew, yet still some time for your own personal/crew choice activities 

– the priceless exchange of experience between „old hands“ and „newcomers“ – local coastal knowledge and exploration for all to enjoy and experience

– easy sailing for beginners, with opportunities for learning new skills

– fun challenge targets/races for seasoned charterers to „compete in company“

In short: it is a combination of an Italian holiday, enjoying sailing around some of the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, also participating in some casually competitive racing in a fun flotilla group!

The organisation and operation of this event will be handled by the experienced team within Sail Charter International.
