What you'll do

Welcome to my sailing yacht Padu. She is a very fast cruiser racer made in Finnland. Padu has a length of 12 m (40 feet) and a very comfortable seaworthy interior. Before we will start I'll introduce you into the facilities on board and into the safty equipment. So you feel comfortable on board.
Depending on the wind and sailing conditions we will sail southward down to L`Escala and the Medes Islands, crossing the Bay of Roses. Or we will sail northward to Cap de Norfeu to see the Bays of Montjoi and Pelosa or perhaps the Bay of Cadaques too. Both coast trips have bays with cristal turquoise water for swimming and snorceling.
Or simply we will chill in the sunset, listening music or having a drink.
If you like to sail to Cap de Creus with its moonlike landscape and very nice bays for swimming and snorkeling we would need a full day sailing starting at 10 am. I would arrange it inclusive lunch. Please contact me
Kid's are welcome with their families providing they are able to swim (its very important).
Other things to note
Please protect yourself with suncream and sunglasses!

When I was 14 I started sailing. At first I learned and I was sailing on different la kes in Northern Germany. After my study I bought my first own sailing yacht and I began sailing on the ocean. Within 35 years I sailed more than 75.000 nautic miles on the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, the Northern Atlantic and the Irish Sea. Since two years I am living in Catalunya and I discover the Mediterranean. I posses all licenses and insurances for offshore sailing.

This experience with Achim was something really special. It exceeded my expectations. It was a fantastic day on the ocean, completely tailored to what we wanted. The tour was was meant to be 3 hours and it was more than 4. Can 't recommend this experience enough. Thank you Achim.

I booked a day trip. It was a wonderful experience. Achim made us feel very welcomed, explained basic security matters and shared a lot of his knowledge of the region. He also was very flexible about the programme and time. He is just a wonderful person who is passionate about sailing. He is aslo very friendly with kids and interacted with them all the time. He is a good cook and adapts to your needs. Thank you again Achim for this wonderful experience!

Der Empfang fiel herzlich, zwanglos und freundschaftlich aus. Padu ist ein schönes, gemütliches Segelschiff mit Character und von Achim wird in Kürze alles Nötige erklärt. Das Schiff ist sauber und die Hygiene ist einwandfrei. Die Küste ist wunderschön und er kennt jede noch so kleine Bucht. Als Gastgeber passt er sich ganz den Bedürfnissen seiner Gäste an. Falls gewünscht unterhält er mit Geschichten und Fachwissen zur Schifffahrt, erklärt lokale Besonderheiten und ist einfachgesagt eine angenehme und faszinierende Persönlichkeit. Von seinen Fähigkeiten als Koch ganz zu schweigen. Trotzdem kamen wir uns nie gestört vor und hatten auch als Pärchen stets unseren Freiraum. Vor allem in diesen schwierigen Zeiten sind wir Achim sehr dankbar konnten wir dem Festland entfliehen und einen atemberaubenden Tag auf See verbringen!! DANKE ACHIM TIARE und LUKAS

We had a wonderfull tim with Achim. You can tell, also from the stories he had shared with us, that he is a super experienced sailor. There was actually quite some wind so we went off from the water high way (lots of noisy motorboats in that area) and just enjoyed the sound of the wind in the sails whilst enjoying the wonderfull view. We really wanted to sail but Achim asked if we wanted to swim, or doing something else so we've really felt accommodated in our needs.
