Italy Flotilla

Join Island Sailing on a NauticEd "Italian Flotilla" from July 14-21, 2018

Josh in Italy

No space remaining - 2 boats fully booked!

A week-long Flotilla in Italy (the Amalfi Coast) led by NauticEd. The Amalfi coast is one of sailing's best kept secrets - incredible sailing and vacation, in many respects less expensive (and more accessible) than more popular destinations like Croatia, and the sailing is even better! A fantastic opportunity to join a boat or captain your own!

The URGENCY is not a gimmick - we have a boat on hold, and spots/boats are going fast. So, contact ISC member Chris Black chris@islandsailing.org if interested.


THREE OPTIONS:

1. Join an Island Sailing boat (we have one on hold)

2. If enough interest, ISC can arrange additional boats/captains.

3. OR book your own boat! Captains are required to have NauticEd's SLC or ICC certification. (note: ISC can assess for the SLC requirement prior to the trip)

If interested in any of the above, please contact fellow member Chris Black at chris@islandsailing.org . Chris is coordinating closely with NauticEd, and can facilitate any of the above options!

THE BASICS

NauticEd Flotilla in ItalyWhen: July 14-21, 2018

Who: NauticEd is a premier sailing education and certification company. Grant Headifen is the Global Director of Education and will be leading the flotilla.

NauticEd students and guests are invited. Primarily, students will captain their own boats with their friends and family. However, we will gather a list of those who would like to join but are not yet qualified to captain their own boat or don’t have enough crew. We will match you up with those looking to fill their cabins.

What: A flotilla is a group of yachts guided by an experienced fleet captain through a new destination.

Where: Italy. Start in Solerno. Tyhrennian Sea; Bay of Naples. We will be visiting and exploring the Phlegraean Islands and Amalfi Coast, specifically Procida, Ischia, Capri, Amalfi, Positano, and Sorrento. See approximate itinerary map below.

Why: Why not? Experience a new charter destination with an experienced NauticEd team.

How: The NauticEd team are expert charterers having lead groups all over the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Pacific. We will provide pre-charter advice, as well as the course and itinerary, including recommendations of things to do, see, and eat.   NauticEd will also host fun events and social activities.   We will be there for any questions you might have. Of course, you’re welcome to explore as you see fit and deviate from any itinerary.   There is no ducks in a row mentality; this flotilla offers you independence with peace of mind as well as fun and comradery with other flotilla sailors. The focus will be foremost on fun, local foods and wine, and enjoyment of this gorgeous coastal area of Italy. Most sailing days will be 2-3 hours long. There are no long distance sailing days.

How much does it cost? The cost is the split cost of the boat (listed below) typically it is around $2750 per cabin. Expect additional $150 or so in split fuel and mooring field costs. Then after that, it is your eating out cost and any food drinks on your boat. Likely you will need at least two hotel nights.

Booking: These boats are on hold now but cannot be held for long. Preference goes to those who have already expressed interest. Boat selection is based on first commitment. Due to seasonal demands, to guarantee a boat, 50% non-refundable deposit is due immediately.

Requirement: Captains will need to hold a NauticEd SLC or an ICC
