What you'll do

After a briefing during which I will explain some basic rules & the best behavior to keep on board, we will set up everything to start our navigation, according to the direction and intensity of the wind. I will suggest to sail to the Sella del Diavolo ("Devil's Saddle"), so called because even the demons remained struck from the beauty of this gulf! We will then sail towards Poetto beach, where swimming is a great experience thanks to the crystal water. During the sail, you will be instructed on the basic principles of sailing, on how a sailboat works and on the function and use of the different maneuvers; you will be invited to participate actively in the conduct of the boat and on top of that, you will admire breathtaking landscapes. If we are lucky, dolphins will follow us during the navigation! Wind and sea state may force us to change the course of our sailing experience. If guests need more informations before booking, they should send a message on Airbnb and I will explain in details what the weather forecast could be on the day of their experience. Generally, the morning experience is ideal for swimmers, and the afternoon one is best for sailing in fresher winds.

I have a great passion for nature, sea and especially for sailing! I love meeting people from other countries because I love meeting different cultures. I am also interested in international relations, economics and global politics, as well as history and marine science. One of the main reasons why I offer this experience is to meet curious travelers who are open to new experiences, and exchange with them my point of view on my own country!

Where you'll be

We will sail in the spectacular Gulf of Cagliari, famous for its ideal sailing conditions; we will head towards the Sella del Diavolo, a promontory with high white cliffs, home of seagulls and cormorans; then we will sail to Poetto beach, depending on the intensity and direction of the wind. But strong wind and sea state may force us to change plan; in this case we will sail along the coast, experiencing a real sporty experience.
