Adventure Cruise: Genoa (Italy) – Palermo (Sicily)

August 10 - August 17

A  great opportunity to build offshore miles and enjoy some beautiful scenery along the way – all under the guidance of a professional skipper. If you are looking for sunny adventures – you may have just found them!

Arrive in Genoa on 10th August for departure on the 11th, ‘Impulse’ will head South for Corsica & Sardinia before arriving in Palermo after a trip of approximately 500 nautical miles. The precise itinerary for this trip will of course be weather dependent, and there will be some overnight passages required in order to cover the distance. You will get the chance to experience being part of a watch system and sailing through the night under the stars.

Likely stops include the historic island of Elba where Napoleon Bonaparte spent 10 months and Bonifacio, a stunning town at the southern tip of Corsica.  Set atop dramatic limestone cliffs, Bonifacio has both picturesque anchorages and a great natural port that offers plenty of restaurants and shops.

After Corsica and enroute to the cosmopolitan island of Sardinia, with its rugged landscape and fabulous seafood, we may stop in the Maddalena Islands. This scatter of seven large islands and 55 tiny isolotti has some of the most spectacular beaches in Italy, and some of the cleanest and clearest water. The Maddalena’s are a quiet place of turquoise lagoons, deserted islands and the most heavenly beaches with barely a footprint to spoil them.

The boat will arrive in Palermo, Sicily by Saturday 17th August and we suggest booking flights home no earlier than Sunday 18th August.

Please budget to contribute to food, marina fees and fuel on a shared basis.
