DAY 2 – SUNDAY – San Teodoro – Porto Rotondo – Porto Cervo
After breakfast and a swim, a short 9-mile navigation will take you to San Teodoro to reach "La Cinta", a long and thin stretch of golden sand between the sea and the lagoon renamed "Tahiti", thanks to its waters similar to tropical paradises.

A beautiful sail of 14 miles is waiting for you along the Costa Smeralda towards the Gulf of Arzachena, where you can choose from the many anchorages and small buoys to spend the day. Sail between Baia Sardinia, Cala Bitta and Canniggione, or enjoy the Gulf of Saline. Dominated by the typical colours of Capo d'Orso, this coast is also known for Roccia dell'Orso, this rock which, with erosion by the Mistral, looks like a crouching bear. Dinner and night onboard.
DAY 4 – TUESDAY – Palau – La Maddalena
After spending the evening in the port, you can discover the beaches and bays between the small islands of "Porco", Santo Stefano and Palau, crossing one of the most picturesque natural canals of the Mediterranean where the wind and the sea have shaped each rock. In the afternoon you will arrive at the small port of Mangiavolpe, in the centre of the inhabited area of "La Maddalena". Dinner and night onboard.
DAY 5 – WEDNESDAY – South Corsica – Bonifacio
You will leave the port to head for the south of Corsica through the wonderful islands of Spargi and Spargiotto and the "Bouches de Bonifacio" to the spectacular fjord of the town of the same name. With a magnificent port built at the end of the 19th century, it was then colonized by the Genoese who, to protect themselves, made structural changes, including the construction of the citadel of Bonifacio as we know it today. Enjoy a pleasant walk through the heart of the medieval fortifications and discover the 187-step staircase that King Alphonse of Aragon had carved out of the rock. Dinner and night onboard.
DAY 6 – THURSDAY – Capo Pertusato – Budelli - Razzoli – Santa Maria – Gulf of Pevero
Leave Corsica and take a swim at Capo Pertusato where you will find an impressive rock which, both for its shape and for its position, has been renamed “Le Gouvernail de la Corse” (The Rudder of Corsica). Then, you will set off for 12 miles to the islands of Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria in the far north of the Maddalena archipelago, protected by the regulations of the National Park.
The "Rosa" beach on the island of Budelli, is often named as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It owes its name to the colour of the sand, rich in tiny fragments of coral, granite, and shells. From there you will sail around Maddalena Island and Caprera. Caprera is the second largest island of the archipelago, and a fully protected area. Connected by a 600-meter bridge built in 1958, in addition to its beauty and unspoiled nature, the island is famous for having been the last residence of Giuseppe Garibaldi. He lived there for 26 years and left many relics preserved in the Garibaldi Compendium, one of the most visited museums in Italy.
Sail to the Gulf of Pevero 14 miles away where you will spend the night. Near Porto Cervo, you can reach the marina in a few minutes with the dinghy, for those who wish to spend a lively evening. The pedestrian area offers many shops and bars. Night onboard.
DAY 7 – FRIDAY – Pevero – Romazzino – Principe – Cala di Volpe - Olbia
After our early morning yoga, we set sail to south again. You’ll be able to take in the stunning views of the rocky cliffs and unique rock formations that line the coast. The Sardinian coastline is known for its rugged beauty and diversity, making it the perfect destination for a sailing adventure.
The morning of the last day will allow you to enjoy a magnificent sunrise in front of the spectacular beach of Grande Pevero. It is one of the most popular beaches for tourists who come to discover the Costa Smeralda. It is shaped like a half moon and at night it reflects its own light.
You will continue to the beaches of Romazzino and Principe (named after the Arab prince Aga Khan, founder of the Costa Smeralda) and Li Ittricceddi 6 miles away. After 3 miles of navigation opposite the promontory of "smeraldino", you will discover four charming beaches: Cala di Volpe, Liscia Ruja, Petra Bianca and Petra Niedda, with their very fine and clear sand, protected by yellow- pink granite.
