For the May holidays, we are gathering a large company of like-minded people! We are planning the race on sailing yachts with gennaker. In 2020, we will sail around the islands of the Tuscan archipelago, Elba and Corsica. Do you want to join us?
Every morning you will wake up to the intrigue of a sailing race. You will work in a team, where everyone is an irreplaceable crew member, and will get a lot of excitement, adrenaline, and sea wind. At the end of the trip, the top three teams will receive cool prizes. During the regatta we pay particular attention to safety measures. By the way, about the prizes: follow our official accounts on social networks, we will begin to talk about them shortly.
Positive emotions and many new friends
«What about relaxation?» you may ask. The program, as always, also includes rest and fun. Races will take place in the morning, and in the afternoon there will be various team-building events, master classes, picnics, theme parties and discos, fun contests and much more. It will definitely be exciting and fun!
We know how special it is to find interesting people to talk to, and there will be many of them in 10 crews! All our participants have similar interests, cool hobbies, a positive outlook on things and an active life position. Otherwise, they wouldn’t choose yachting.

We will sail around the islands of the Tuscan archipelago — Elba and Corsica.
Yes, of course. There will be an experienced skipper and team members on the yacht. They will give you a role and teach you everything you need to know to be a useful team member and feel comfortable.
Yes, all team members will definitely try themselves in different roles to better understand each other. Standing at the helm is an integral part of training for beginners as well as setting sails, and helping the team during moorings.
As a rule, participants in the regatta live on the yacht. The boat has everything you need for a comfortable stay: nice beds, a kitchen, a shower with toilet. If you do not want to live on a yacht, then you can arrange to stay at the hotel onshore.
The crew decides altogether what kind of food they prefer to eat and makes necessary purchases. Simple dishes can be cooked, usually taking turns. Some regattas offer daily meals and intensive evening program for all crews.
We can make an invitation for a visa, but you need to apply for a visa by yourself.
Most people tolerate some seasickness easily. If you feel that you are starting to feel sick, it is best to get at the steering wheel or tune the sails. Get yourself busy, show your body that you don’t have time to get sick, you have to fight for victory in the race. There are also many quite effective medicines from sickness. If you start taking them in advance, then the probability of seasickness is almost zero.
Before each trip, we organize an online meeting where participants get to know each other and the captain. The captain will answer all your questions. The crew will have a group chat so you can get to know each other before the start of the regatta. Then you will meet in the marina.
The main rule is to dress comfortably and according to the weather. Clothing: • windbreaker and pants or shorts; • shirt/jacket with UV protection (thermal underwear and fleece); • adjustable hat/cap; • gloves. We recommend to purchase a long-sleeved jacket with UV protection in order to protect yourself from the sun and strong wind. Yachting shoes should be: • light, with non-slip white outsole; • with the fixed heel; • with a tightly closed nose. During the sailing without shoes, you can fall or injure your fingers and feet on the deck. There are many protruding parts on the boat that are easy to catch. Unfortunately, even experienced sailors are not protected from unpleasant injuries when they ignore this simple rule.
