We have a maximum of 5 students per instructor on our RYA courses, which allows for both plenty of hands-on sailing time and individual attention from your instructor
It may be necessary for you to share a cabin. Couples and friends will normally share. If you are coming on a course on your own there is a possibility you will have to share a cabin but this would only be with someone of the same sex.
Part of learning to sail is learning how to live aboard a yacht. All chores, including cooking, are shared equally between all students and the instructor.
Our practical base is in Procida marina, a one-hour away by ferry from Naples. An ideal location for quick and easy access both the North and South of Italy. On request, we can organize a private transfer from the International airport of Naples to our base. The sailing area is the Pontine islands, Ischia, Capri.
Although you will spend some nights in marinas, in order to explore some of the more beautiful locations and to get the most out of the sail cruising training you also spend some nights at anchorage.
We do ask that you bring a holdall style bag, by this we ideally mean a folding bag with no wheels. We recommend a high factor sun cream, lip salve, hat, fingerless sailing gloves (if desired), quick drying towel, RYA logbook (if you have one), Soft bag only, please.
