171313544-33c8a528-1cab-4ddd-a04d-fd0921f0c4a3PROPOSAL NUMBER 1: BECOME SAILORS TOGETHER WITH MATTEO MICELI
Are you ready to dive into a four-day, four-night full-immersion in offshore sailing with an exceptional mentor, the great sailor Matteo Miceli (by the way, he will be following the Vendée Globe start live from Les Sables d’Olonne for us)? You read that right, the very skipper who nearly completed a nonstop solo round-the-world voyage on a Class 40 (the boat on which the course will be held) and who, with Biondina Nera, a 20-foot non-habitable catamaran he built, made the Atlantic crossing, setting a world record. He didn’t just do this, but let him tell you all about it when you meet him in person!

Rome for All: Rome for 1 - Rome for 2DATES, LOCATION, GOALS AND PRICE
The next course with Miceli will be held Dec. 7-11 (embarkation on the evening of Dec. 6): not a walk at sea, because whatever the weather, you will set sail and stay at sea for 4 days and 4 nights in the central Tyrrhenian Sea, starting from Riva di Traiano. You will be able to acquire the skills needed to navigate safely both day and night, to maintain and prepare the boat, to deal with bad weather and to handle the unexpected, emergencies and breakdowns most frequently encountered at sea; you will be able to hone techniques for proper sail trimming and for mooring and unmooring in challenging conditions. We will learn about polyphasic sleep management for small crew navigation, meteorology, electronics, and more. In short, in just a few days, if you follow Matteo’s advice, you can become a real sailor. The cost of the course is 1,200 euros.

We are offering three weekends in the name of safe boating: November 11/13 will be dedicated to offshore and night boating (starting at midnight on Friday 11), November 26/27 will focus on mooring and anchoring, and the December 9/10 session will be dedicated to emergencies. A single weekend costs 389 euros, but if you decide to attend all three to increase your “skills” as an offshore sailor you will get a 15% discount. Experienced skipper Stefano de Dominicis, based in Marina di Fezzano (La Spezia), will accompany you.
