Episode One: Did you just get your boating license? Experts advise you boat and destination

Sail-Boat-Sailing-Sea-Sunset-Hd-1281622Let’s say you have just passed your boat license exam and are dreaming of chartering a boat on your own for the first time. Finally, you do not have to depend on anyone and are able to fully enjoy the most rewarding aspect of sailing: freedom. You may be wondering: will I be able? What is the best destination for my little experience? What is the easiest boat with which to set sail? Keep calm, because we have an answer for all your questions. Let’s start with where. If you have a week to spare, arrange to leave by involving a friend who has been on a boat before and therefore can help you; this will provide you with more security. With an ever-watchful eye on the weather (never forget the weather forecast before leaving!), here are two destinations that are right for you: the French Riviera departing from Antibes or Port Grimaud and heading for the Gulf of Saint Tropez, the Fort de Bregancon and the Porquerolles Islands. If you want to stay in Italy instead, why not venture to Tuscany? A week is ideal for visiting the Tuscan archipelago: Elba Island, Capraia, Giglio, Giannutri. These are all destinations that can be reached with a few hours of daily sailing and where to find well-equipped and safe ports. What about the choice of boat? The advice is a hull no larger than 42 feet (Beneteau Oceanis, Elan Impression, Dufour GL, Bavaria Cruiser) and make sure it is rigged for easy running even with a small crew.
