Sail away with Fabrizio
Set sail with our skipper Fabrizio around the Bay of Naples! Hear tales of his sailing experience in France and Italy and discover his sailing style and favourite mooring spots. From spring through to late summer set sail with him on one of many possible routes to the Pontine Islands or along the Amalfi coast. Fabrizio also offers sailing and hiking cruises to these same destinations.
What is your motto ?
Sailing made me understand that how little we need to feel good about the world: all it takes is a sunset, the sound of the lapping water against the hull, the wind, the smell of the sea, and life is fine.
Your sailing style ?
My main priority is safety.
How do you handle the life on board ?I explain, the crew participates if they want to
How does shopping work?I can stock up on supplies before departure, or the crew can do it, it is up to them.
How does cooking work?Everybody helps cooks
How did you become skipper ?
I'm a specialist professional instructor and have worked with a number of organisations dealing with many different people, kids, teenagers, young mothers, etc. I have always had a passion for sailing and the sea and trained at one of the biggest sailing schools in Europe, Les Glénans, where I gained my instructors diploma in 2006. Since I have regularly sailed between Brittany and the Bay of Naples, my home town. In Italy I passed my high-seas license for sailing and motor-driven boats which meant I was able to work with associations like the Fondazione Dal Mare, whose aim is to develop knowledge of sea as a source of natural and economic wealth.
What people say about you?
People say that I like doing stuff. And that my big character flaw is wanting to do things too well.
Your best cruise memory
Returning the port of Falmouth in Cornwall at 5pm seeing hundreds of tiny yachts heading seawards for a jaunt after work. Now that's what I call the love of sailing.
In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?
Quand les gens ont trouvé une bonne raison de revenir !
Your worst cruise memory ?
Une semaine à ne pas fermer l'oeil de la nuit! simplement à cause d'un voisin de couchette ronfleur. Depuis je prends toujours des boules quies dans ma valise. Rien vécu de tel depuis !

The Skipper :le skipper en a fait le moins possible et était à la limite de l'amabilité!
The Skipper :Une opinion tres mitigée. Peu d enthousiasme de sa part et un problème global d empathie . Il a surtout géré la croisière et les escales de facon à préserver sa tranquillité !
