Summer Sailing Course
Sailing & Cooking, the combination of Outdoor activities, Sardinian culture and gourmet gastronomical art. The perfect coexistence of passions.
The course is five days long and takes place on the west coast of Sardinia, in the region of Marine Procted Area Sinis – Mal di Ventre. We use a classic Sparkman&Stephens Galatea sailing boat: fast,powerful and soulful. Participants have a 5-night/6-day stay in Limolo B&B (Cabras): where you’ll find comfortable rooms and spacious common areas in a refurbished typical Sardinian house tastefully adorned with the colours of the sea.
Typical of regatta and sailing school teams, the sharing of a rhythm and experiences together strengthens crew spirit and creates a natural team building environment, which adds an even greater value to the course.
Half of each day is spent sailing and the rest is left for you to discover the sea along the Sinis coast. During the day, you’ll be served gourmet light lunches and in the evenings, you’ll learn the secrets of Sardinian cuisine under Daniela’s supervision to prepare and taste the finest meals from Sardinia and beyond. Based on an interactive teaching method, the course consists of theory lessons and outings to sea, where participants will come to learn and practice all of the basic sailing manoeuvres. The main goal of this course is to enable its participants to handle the boat safely and autonomously.
In the evening you will taste the delicacies of the place in cheerful dinners all together in the best places of Cabras.
