A Bay of Naples sailing vacation typically centers on the Phlegraean and Pontine islands, and the Amalfi coast on the Sorrento Peninsula, though longer cruises can take sailors south to the wonderful Aeolian Islands. Regardless of the length of the cruise, a Bay of Naples yacht charter offers a blend of magnificent sailing, upscale dining, boutique shopping, 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.

Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat.
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. Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes that you can get wet is recommended.
