Trip Diary - Sardinia & Corsica Sailing Adventure

Diary of day 1

Olbia

This land resembles no other place. Sardinia is something else. Enchanting spaces and distances to travel-nothing finished, nothing definitive. It is like freedom itself. – DH Lawrence.

Meet the Skipper at 16:00 at the Café Principe Umberto in Olbia which located on the NE Coast of Sardinia. A short drive (approximately 20 min) will bring you to the Yacht which will be located in Portisco. The first port of call is then the local supermarket to buy supplies for your trip as a group. If you have any special dietary requirements, please make sure you notify us at the time of booking so we can accommodate your requests.

We settle on the boat that will be our home for the next 8 days and spend the first night in Portisco on the Costa Smeralda. Fifty years ago the coast north of Olbia was farmland that was until a group of well heeled business purchased the strip of coast and turned it into a millionaires playground, the Costa Smeralda or Emerald Coast. Called so because of the green-blue colour of the water. The rest of the trip we will be among the beautiful marine reserve of Sardinia and Corsica and their small islands.

***The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we are flexible on the day's itinerary***
