A week of navigations among the fjords of Ireland's. Only for EXPERIENCED NAVIGATORS, because in addition to the question of the tides, the sea becomes a force 7 an hour, yes and a no. Furthermore all the comforts of a cruising sailboat do not exist. You are in Cork and then by bus you reach Baltimore (South West Coast)., where you sleep on a boat and set sail on Saturday, to return the following Saturday. Return to Cork, sleep in the hotel and return by plane to Milan on Sunday. The cost is € Protected content only includes boat rental. The trip, board and lodging for one night at the hotel, are at your own expense. A unique experience, we will rely on the "Lega Navale Italiana to which I belong as an expert sailor.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Previous experience where there have been misunderstandings I have to clarify some things. Although I have a sail curriculum, I will not be your "Skipper". The True Skipper (the real title has 5 people in Italy, only people who can do business and make money, all others can only do sports and not for profit or gain) has contractual obligations for where is the kitchen, you have breakfast, etc. I am the commander of the boat, that is, the civil and criminal responsible of your lives. The commander, for the Italian law, is responsible for your safety. So he (in this case myself) decides if the prescribed path will change because of the time; if we go back to the nearest port if someone is injured or feels sick; if you stay in the harbor when weather conditions could compromise your safety. But it also decides if any behavior or whole crew of a person is not suitable for navigation safety. An example: if I tell a person to put on their boots, because, as is often the case, barefoot is always someone who breaks the toes, he / she has to put them because if he slips and pushes a other than ending in the sea is a serious problem. Also, if he does not put his shoes and hurt, I see him forced to return to the port, with the other crew members who get angry for the cruise to end suddenly.
So, in short, as someone in the past believed, I'm not the slave of anyone, I do not prepare breakfasts and I do not go where a person decides to go when he does not know how long it takes and weather conditions.

Apart from the role of Commander, you should consider me a member of "intenations" with the same rights and with multiple responsibilities of responsibility.
As a crew you can decide whether to drive the sailboat (if the conditions are not difficult) and I can teach whoever wants it, or limit yourself to sunbathing and taking pictures.

INSURANCE: All boats are insured by the shipowner, who wants to cover a private insurance can make a sports membership card of the Italian ones, but just be careful and listen. Besides, who does a private insurance for a plane trip?

However, Italian sports cards (cost from € 20 to € Protected content valid for one year and of course, so little cost, you do not have to expect that if you hurt a foot give you a billion :-)

Below I must add a note of Internations that I have to put more and please read:
