Many excellent reasons to choose a sailing experience:

  • REGENERATING YOURSELF: Sailing is a magical experience, in the true sense of the word. Our unconscious perceives sailing at sea as a mental and psycho-physical reset. Sailing at sea is a real journey into our Self, therefore a truly magical act. A journey outside the perception of space-time-place. 

  • Sailing is WELL-BEING in harmony with the natural rhythm of nature.

  • Freedom and adventure: Discover the freedom that only a boat can offer you.

  • Sailing on a sailing boat offers you the opportunity to discover the coastal beauty from a unique perspective, allowing you to explore enchanting, hidden and still uncontaminated places. Crowded and noisy beaches will be just a distant memory!

  • Relax: The waves of the sea and the breeze of the wind will gently lull you while you relax with a book or a glass of wine.

  • Fill up on VITAMIN D.In fact, it is sufficient to expose yourself for at least 30 minutes a day to stimulate good production of the precious substance and exploit all its beneficial effects.

  • Sharing an unforgettable experience: The Commander will involve you in the maneuvers on board and you will be able to learn the basics for sailing on a sailing boat such as: setting a sail, making a gassa, hoisting the sails with the help of levers, experiencing the thrill of being at the helm of a large sailing boat, learning the directions of the wind and the pace of sailing.

  • Sailing is a valuable educational experience for both young people and adults, teaching fundamental values such as adaptability, respect for others and patience, as well as benefiting physical and mental well-being.

  • The sailing boat isECOFRIENDLY. Sailing is the most sustainable way to enjoy the sea. By reducing harmful gas emissions to a minimum, sailing allows you to enjoy the wonders of nature while respecting the environment. You will have the opportunity to admire breathtaking views, heavenly bays and coves, and marine animals in their natural habitat without disturbing their balance. Furthermore, life on board requires the optimized and responsible use of resources. This means, for example, limiting the use of single-use plastic products to avoid the accumulation of waste on board and adopting a thrifty approach to water and electricity consumption.

THE ZINGARO RESERVE

THE ZINGARO ORIENTED NATURE RESERVE

Admiring the Zingaro Reserve from the sea is an exciting experience because it allows you to grasp the majesty of the place with a single glance. The high peaks of the Zingaro slope down to the sea, the green of the Mediterranean scrub mixes with the red of the rocks and plunges into the blue of its splendid waters.

Small bays paved with white pebbles, a sea that during the day is tinged with unexpected shades of green and blue, sharp rocks that separate the different beaches, Mediterranean scrub that seems to dive into the sea and ancient farmhouses built on the rock.
A mix of nature and discreet presence of man.
