The Crew and Things to Know before Boarding

Less is more is the rule for this type of vacation. We at Italy Trails suggest that you always have a windbreaker or sweater with you, even for single-day trips, and that you bring soft-sided luggage or a duffel bag that can fit in the tight spaces on the boat. It is important to remember that water and electricity are limited on board, so plan on spending time away from your devices, getting to know the sea and the wind. One of the fundamental rules of living on a sailboat with other people is respect – for both the sharing of space and the completion of required tasks. Italy Trails’ crew will take care of everything, but if you’d like to lend a hand with the ship’s operation, our skippers will be happy to let you work alongside them.
