The programme offers an intense sailing experience of about 140 miles (about 30 miles a day). The first day we sail 25 miles across the Gulf of Follonica to arrive at the Island of Elba where we spend the night at anchor in one of the beautiful bays (to be chosen depending on weather conditions). The next morning we continue sailing and after 40 miles reach the port of Macinaggio in Corsica (alternatively we can spend this second night in one of the picturesque bays around the rock of Giraglia). The third day we have a leg of only 25 miles to reach the island of Capraia where we moor in port for the night. The fourth day another 25 miles takes us to Portoferraio, Elba’s main harbour. The fifth and final day (the last 25 miles) takes us back to Scarlino.
The cruise can be shortened to four days, stopping in Portoferraio on Saturday night and combining the last two days into a single passage (45 miles). When sailing, you can, if desired, be involved in the navigation of the boat and get sailing lessons.
