From 1st June 2015, a new yacht charter service is available in Sardinia, on the lesser known west coast. The charming Sparkman & Stephens vessel can accommodate up to 10 guests for daytrips and up to four to sleep on board.
The sailing experience begins with a briefing from the skipper, and involves some participation from the guests on board, depending on level and preference.
There are various itineraries, including sailing beneath the ancient city of Tharros, founded by the Phoenicians around 800 A.D., then later becoming a Roman site and to the marine protected isle of Mal di Ventre.
Exploring the coast aboard the yacht, called Santa Maria, is a perfect way of coming into contact with the essence of Sardinia. Mirror calm seas in the morning on departure, cormorants and gulls and a myriad of blues between sea and sky.
A day trip to destinations on the west coast, including Capo San Marco, Capo Frasca, Tharros, the enchanting isle of Mal di Ventre and Santa Caterina di Pittinuri is an adventure from start to finish. Coffee and a light snack is served mid-morning, and guests can choose to have a swim and snorkel or sunbathe and relax on board.
Santa Maria anchors in beautiful spots for a typical Sardinian pasta lunch with fresh, locally grown fruit and vegetables and chilled white wine.
