Amazing Amalfi

The Amalfi Coast must be one of the most colourful in the whole of the Mediterranean. With the added touch of glamour from the likes of Sorrento and the island of Capri this makes for a fantastic sailing destination. The entire coastline is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and so it’s not hard to see why celebrities and holiday makers alike are lured in by its beauty and charm.

Enjoy a touch of Italian glamour alongside a feast of Italian food and wine. Sail to Sorrento and and the nearby Islands of Capri, Ishcia and Procida.

Sail from either Salerno or the island of Procida. This sailing ground is renowned as a destination for the rich and famous so be sure to check out who is moored on the superyacht next door!

What’s the weather like?

In the summer months the wind is generally from the South, swinging round to a South West or South Easterly with the strength picking up in the afternoon. In the mornings it’s a wonderfully light force 2, picking up to a force 4 in the afternoon.

As with most Mediterranean destinations the warmest time of year to visit is during July and August with temperatures at their highest, then in the shoulder months of May and October it hovers around the low 20’s.

The costs of mooring fees for a 39ft yacht range from €30 to upwards of €100 per night, with prices sometimes rising to double the cost when staying over a weekend. When sailing in Italy there are anchorages available, some of the better anchorages have mooring buoys which you do have to pay for, but are less expensive than a marina.
