Opening gala dinner.
Livorno is located on the coast of the Ligurian Sea. It is the center of the Tuscany province. The city was badly damaged during the war, but it is gradually recovering. Livorno today is a large port city, and the industrial center of Italy.
Take a walk along the “musical” terrace of Mascagni named after the composer Petro Mascagni. This beautiful checkerboard promenade is now a favorite place among the guests of the city and the local people.
Livorno also has its own Venice - a quarter with canals and old houses.
There is an old fortress in the city that was built in the 11th century, was destroyed, and then restored again.
Giraglia Island is situated near Corsica. The highest point of the island is 66 meters. There is a lighthouse 82 meters high on the island. The island is composed of black and green slates. The ecosystem of the island is included in the European nature conservation project Natura 2000.

Punta Ala is an elite resort in the Tuscan Riviera. It is located on a cape that protrudes into the sea and resembles a bird's wing. Punta Ala is a place with interesting cliffs, the emerald sea, and beautiful sandy beaches.

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.
