Not quite so, but we adapt it to our needs! However, with a nice and auspicious sailing under the coast of Mount Erice, we will enter the Marine Park of the Egadi Islands, heading to the island of Levanzo where we will moor in the small port for a short visit to the very characteristic village. Lunch on board in the bay in front of Levanzo and the more courageous can take a dip in the sea.

He will leave the moorings from the port of Favignana and give his crew the opportunity to have breakfast in a truly special setting, Cala Grande! A bay where the colors of the seabed vary from blue, to green, to turquoise, in a frame of typically Mediterranean coast and vegetation even in winter. After breakfast, we will take a long sail in the direction of San Vito Lo Capo, during which all the crew will be able to collaborate in the maneuvers on board, according to the wintch and the adjustment of the sails and during which whoever wants to, can try the real steering of the boat, according to the helm.

In the afternoon, still sailing along the Riserva dello Zingaro, we will reach Castellammare del Golfo, a town which, with its stairways overlooking the sea, with its square-terrace from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Gulf of Palermo, still retains all the characteristics of a seaside village and after having moored in the center of the town, we can go ashore for an ice cream, a granita or an aperitif.

Here are some Rules and "etiquette" to know for those who take part in the cruise on a sailing boat. • Do not get on board with shoes unless otherwise indicated, especially on boats with teak decks • You do not smoke indoors and if you smoke outside, if possible put yourself downwind. • The skipper is a guest, it is not mandatory to invite him to the restaurant, but if you do it is the responsibility of the passengers • On board accommodation: the cabins of a sailboat can be double or bunk and this means that if you are a couple you will be assigned a double cabin while if you are single you will share the cabin with another person of the same sex. • No pets, bulky luggage, weapons, rifles and / or diving daggers, AR diving equipment and drugs are allowed on board • In case of voluntary interruption by the guest, there is no refund • For adverse weather and sea conditions, the cruise program may undergo changes during navigation which will be evaluated at the sole discretion of the skipper-captain. Extras The Extra costs of a cruise-school-holiday on a sailing boat are included in the GALLEY (purchase of food for the crew), in the Moorings in ports or marinas if different from the port of embarkation and disembarkation and in the fuel consumption of the boat. These three "items" may involve a total extra expense of about 12, maximum € 15 per person per day while cooking and enjoying great drinks! • The gallery: It is by the crew. Before the departure of the cruise, we go shopping all together taking into account any food incompatibilities or allergies. If everyone agrees, a common fund is created with which to meet all expenses. • Moorings: the costs of moorings in ports or marinas are divided among all the crew members, but if you prefer to spend the night in the harbor under the stars… ..Zero cost! • Fuel Consumption: we are on a sailboat and fuel consumption is very low. Upon returning to the port, at the end of the cruise, refueling is refueled and the expense is divided between all the crew members. What to bring? Bring sunglasses, high protection sunscreen, rock shoes, hat, flip flops, multifunction sarong, a sweatshirt or fleece suit, a windproof waterproof jacket or jacket, a backpack for hiking, a waterproof case for mobile phones (which have a fatal attraction for the sea !!), two or three costumes and some T-shirts. For everything else, ask your skipper, he will be able to advise you! What not to bring? Rigid suitcases, umbrellas (bring bad luck), iron, long pants, sweaters, shirts and heavy jackets, high-heeled shoes and precious jewels Don't give up your holiday for seasickness, if you know it, you manage it! Seasickness in a boat it is caused by the waves and unexpected variations that our body is not yet used to accept. Mind you, I said "not yet". Nausea it is nothing more than an imbalance of the inner ear where organs entrusted to the control of balance are housed. Waving on a boat can overload the sensory activity of these organs which then send irregular signals to the brain. A question of habit then, attitude, except for rare chronic cases on which obviously I do not pronounce myself. Seasickness shouldn't be scary, just take small measures before our body gets used to it. Don't leave for this reason so it's really a waste of life lived. So if you think you are ill, follow these tips: • at breakfast it is better not to drink milk, liters of juice or eat donuts of cream. Better a lemon tea rather than dry biscuits. • during the day make small meals based on crackers, bread, rusks, bread sticks, anchovies for those who like them or pretzels. In short, don't stay on an empty stomach. • do not drink in hot weather dehydrates and weakens. So don't forget to always have a bottle of water on hand and drink it in small sips, not all in one gulp. • do not overeat at lunch, avoid too much fat and do not overdo it with alcohol • sucking on a piece of crystallized ginger is a very effective remedy. Like cocculus, marjoram and sesame seeds. Natural but effective remedies - do not get cold, so cover yourself before you feel it - as soon as you feel something wrong do not wait any longer, immediately eat something dry and lie down in the lowest and central point of the boat, possibly on your stomach closing the eyes. Try to relax, take a deep breath and try to sleep without thinking about anything. If you can't stay below decks, do the same thing out in the cockpit - being at the helm or chatting is distracting. Do it always and in any case immediately as soon as you feel the sensation, I repeat, do not wait beyond the first symptom. After it gets late. • don't be a hero. If you feel bad who cares, free yourself (downwind). The best have already tried it and no one is excluded. • Medical remedies and anything that can be used to rest assured there are, such as scopolamine, examine or travelgum. Antihistamine remedies obviously cause some dryness, drowsiness and visual disturbances. Each of these has principles that must be verified in the pharmacy, however, based on your state of health. Even the bracelet works for some, which must be placed a few centimeters above the wrist. In short, remember that it is just a matter of giving the body time to get used to it. After that, everything will be absolutely accessible and fun, even cooking while sailing at 40 ° inclines and with waves of two meters. Tried, it works!
