ABOUT YOUR SAILING COLLECTIVE JOURNEY
Get ready for magnificent sailing, unparalleled dining, and intriguing sightseeing in picturesque towns with roots dating back to ancient Greece and Rome. A Bay of Naples sailing vacation on Italy’s Tyrrhenian Sea is a cruise through a Mediterranean paradise. The passages between islands are mostly short, providing plenty of time to enjoy all the pleasures of sailing as well as for sojourns ashore to explore, sample the local cuisine, and to sit idly with a cocktail at a café to soak in the wonders of Italy’s southwestern coast. Gentle and warm summer winds from the northwest average between 8 and 12 knots.
Your journey will be crewed by a captain and chef who are trained professionals and explorers at heart. With diverse backgrounds as sailors, travelers, artists, gastronomes and academics, Sailing Collective crew members offer a wealth of information and life experience to every journey. Your crew will work with you to build a customized day to day itinerary tailored to your group needs, interests, and desired activities.

Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat.Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes such as flip flops that you can get wet if we are landing on a beach.
During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style.

The Lagoon 450 has everything you could want in a cruising boat: Incredible performance under sail, wide open deck space for lounging, and an incomparable comfort in the saloon and the cabins. The wide hulls of Lagoon 450 offer comfortable cabins with larger floor space than other catamarans of the size. An airy saloon contains an open concept modern galley (kitchen) and comfortable seating all with stunning panoramic visibility of the natural beauty that you came for. The aft deck is covered by a hard top bimini so that there is always plenty of breezy shaded space for lounging when you are taking a break from the sun drenched foredeck. Up front the netted "trampoline" between the hulls is the ultimate place to enjoy this boat under sail with the sun beaming down and the water rushing below you.
One of Sailing Collective's favorite monohulls, the 53 built by Jeanneau, is perfect for larger groups and families, looking for a combination of sailing performance and comfort. Above and below deck, her layout allows for plenty of room for socializing, but also offers practicality and performance where required. Headroom: Entry to Cabins: 6' 1" Galley and Cabins: 6' 5" Headroom at helm: 6' 6" The Jeanneau 53 is a pleasure to sail and is responsive to touch, her electric winches and bow thrusters make her surprisingly easy to handle.
