Limolo Activities: non profit amateur sports association
Limolo Activities is a non profit amateur sports association that aims at practicing and promoting sports through active and ecosostenible tourism, with special attention to sea activities, sailing navigation and other practices for sport therapy. Founded in 2015 by a group of friends sharing the same passion and several past experiences at sea, Limolo Activities restores the1973 Sparkman & Stephens sailboat Galatea, returning it to the sea. It is used for introductory sailing and navigation courses, short regattas, team building, and sport therapy with social aims too.
Since 2016, Limolo Activities has joined forces with a very good team, in a pleasant and enriching exchange of passions and competences.
This has led to the invention and realization of the following activities.
Now in its seventh edition three years after its launch, this six-day program aims at introducing and practicing offshore sailing in a classic Sparkman&Stephens sail boat and other sea activitcties, having walks,acting and cooking lessons, seminars with neurologists and psychologists. Intense days are spent in the open air, before breathtaking landscapes which will often improve patients’ gestures, manual skills, balance and concentration in situations of necessity and problem solving. Thus, they gradually explore new, underestimated potentialities by learning how to handle sail boats, stand up paddle boards, treks, their own well-being and themselves autonomously.
Young People: From Sinis to Sinis.

Giulio and the sea:
Despite suffering from Parkinson’s disease, former yachtsman, aerospace engineer, tree and sail boat designer Giulio still prefers to spend a week with his family and enjoy his greatest passions, the sea and our classical Sparkman&Stevens sail boat, at the same time. It is the contrast between his new life and the wondrous natural environment of this part of Sardinia that helped him go over most of limits, commonplaces and difficulties related to his disease. Second edition of this activity took place in 2017.
Into the wild woman
Now in its fourth edition one year after its presentation, Into the wild woman is a five-day female adventure route, which is led by an expert in a team (an experienced psychotherapist on group counseling) and aims at helping women find their own inner peace through the energy of nature. It’s a shared bonding and socializing experience taking place in the wild Sinis environment, in the West coast of Sardinia. This is a place where women will be given the chance to relate to their early, unsullied and sensitive selves thank to the several metaphors of sailing, bio-energetic activations and sensory inputs, eventually finding an empowerment and inner harmony.
Experience yourself is a five-day male route whose creation was meant to enable boys to experience their own personal and relational skills and find a contact with their own strengths and weaknesses. Sailing and orienteering games in the Sinis wilderness will encourage men to be self-confident and gain perfect harmony between strength and control.
