Explore the glamorous Amalfi coast or the less discovered Gulf of Salerno.

The Amalfi coast is one of the most celebrated stretches of coastline with dramatic cliffs and pastel coloured villages cascading down the mountainside. Trailing bouganvillea and the smell of lemon groves add to the charm. Within the Gulf of Naples visit the islands of Ischia, Procida and Vivara and you can't miss the the achingly stylish Capri. There are no shortage of stunningly beautiful anchorages along the Amalfi coastline, such as Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi. For a more 'back to basics' feel explore the coastline south of Salerno, where there are many unspoilt fishing harbours.

With daily flights to Naples you could have a few days shorebased before or after your yacht charter to visit the outstanding Roman ruins at Pompeii and Herculaneum, easily reached by train from Naples. Take some time to explore the bustling city of Naples with all of its raw charm and of course to feast in the birth place of pizza!

    Suggested 1 week sailing itinerary from Naples

    DAY 1 : Marina Sud Cantiere

    Embark at Marina Sud Cantiere, an easy 25 minute transfer from Naples Airport. A small supermarket is only 100m away and a superstore a short taxi ride away.

    DAY 2 : Procida (8nm)

    Take a leisurely sail over to Procida, the smallest island in the bay. In the peak of summer, 'in the know' Italians flock to its shores but outside of this time you find a refreshingly real and authentic Italian town. Simple island living at its best. Wander the small, colourful streets before sailing round to Vivara. Vivara is connected to Procida by a bridge and is a nature reserve which is home to rare plants, rabbits and birds. Check online for opening hours prior to your visit.

    DAY 3 : Ischia (6nm)

    From the smallest to the largest island in the bay, Ischia is a popular coastal destination. Take the time to explore the island's 34km of volcanic coastline and hidden coves. Head ashore for thermal spas, mountains and beautiful views of Capri.

    DAY 4 : Capri (19nm)

    A lovely sail across the bay today brings you to the infamous chic island of Capri. Visit the Blue Grotto or take the Monte Solaro chair lift for spectacular views right across the bay. Wander the small streets, filled to the brim with boutique and designer shops or head to Marina Piccola for great views of the Faraglioni, Capri's legendary trio of sea giants.

    DAY 5 : Positano (16nm)

    The jewel of the Amalfi Coast, Positano will entice you with her terracotta buildings tumbling their way down the hillside, steep and steep, narrow streets backed by the verdant green Monti Lattari. Walking around Positano, the town's rich history is palpable. The ruins of grand Roman villas, the prominent Church of Santa Maria Assunta which dates back to the 11th century, fortified walls and looming watch towers all give a little insight into that which came before. Enjoy weaving your way through the quaint little streets stopping for a Delizia al Limone at Zagara.

    DAY 6 : Sorrento (19nm)

    The gateway to the Amalfi Coast and with all the authentic Italian charm of this beautiful region. This is the land of lemons, olives, cobbled streets and tumbling wisteria. You can also find some fantastic walking routes in this area - the ancient donkey trails which used to be the only connection between the villages are still intact and great for exploring on foot.

    DAY 7 : Marina Sud Cantiere (25nm)

    A final day's sail brings you back to Naples and Marina Sud Cantiere. Enjoy your final evening soaking up the atmosphere and feasting on some real and authentic pizza after a week of sailing one of the most beautiful and iconic coastlines.

"We spent a week in the company of Robert the skipper and Veronica the hostess on board Icarus sailing the north Ionian islands. Their hospitality was second to none, Roberts knowledge of the islands is amazing and Veronica laid on wonderful food and took care of our every need. The yacht is immaculate and very comfortable. The week went far too quick. We visited some amazing places and ate at some great restaurants. It was our perfect holiday experiencing something different every day. We hope to return again and would highly recommend."

Sailing Qualifications

To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.

The port authorities in Greece are now insisting on one of the following practical certificates: RYA ICC (International Certificate of Competence), RYA Coastal, RYA Yachtmaster, ASA IPC (International Proficiency Certificate) or the IYT (International Yacht Training) Passport. If you hold an RYA Day Skipper or ASA104 it will no longer be accepted and you need to obtain either an ICC or IPC from the corresponding issuing body (RYA or ASA). If your RYA Coastal/Yachtmaster or ASA105/106 certificate is more than 12 years old and does not have a photo ID, then we would also strongly advise applying for an ICC or IPC. If you are a member of the RYA or ASA, you may qualify for a discount or free certificate, otherwise, you will have to pay. The approximate cost is £50. Please use this link - RYA application for the ICC or ASA application for the IPC.

For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.

RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.

For Seychelles, the local authorities require an ICC for the skipper of a bareboat or flotilla yacht charter.

For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.

If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
