ROUTE TO THE NORTH

First day: Nicolas will meet you at 3pm in the port of Ajaccio. On board, your skipper will brief you on the cruise, on the safety rules and on life at sea.

Later you'll drop the anchor in Elbo Bay to enjoy an unobstructed view over the red porphyry cliffs and the tall mountains.

Fourth day: After sleeping in Galeria Bay, you'll set sail for the walled town of Calvi, 20 miles away. (This will take around 3-4 hours.)

Fifth day: You'll begin your return to the south, from Calvi to Girolata. You'll never get bored of the unspoiled coastline of the Scandola Nature Reserve.

You'll anchor in the bay, beneath the fort.

Sixth day: You'll sail for 20 miles (around 3-4 hours) to Cargèse. This route alongside the unspoiled coastline will offer you unforgettable views

Seventh day: Enjoy your last day of sailing to the maximum! You'll sail the whole morning then eat lunch anchored alongside the Sanguinaires Islands, before floating into the gulf to spend the night there.
