Hello, I'm Max, actually an arborist from Frankfurt am Main, but also a passionate sailor for about 6 years. This time I want to sail along the Italian west coast as well as to Sardinia. The route given here is a suggestion, depending on the wishes of the crew it can also go to Sicily or southern Italy. The sailing trip starts in Palermo and ends there as well. From Palermo we sail together to the waypoints decided with the crew. It is planned to sail around Sicily once during the two weeks, in addition a stopover on Malta is planned. Of course we will sleep on the yacht. Dive/snorkel bays or marinas will be visited as desired. Of course, shore excursions are also part of the program, whether it is a walk through one of the countless harbor towns or a hike through the beautiful landscape of Sicily. There is shopping and cooking together or restaurants are approached, also here all options are open. No previous experience or previous knowledge is required, but about a helping hand, as part of the crew, I am happy. What is included in the price? In the price per person are the charter costs, skipper, dinghy with outboard and if necessary a spinnaker. Additionally 400€ board cash is to be planned, these are for harbor fees, diesel and food. Any surplus, if any, will be refunded. The board cash is administered by the crew itself. I look forward to your messages!

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-2
On the day of arrival, all TripMates should arrive at the marina by 2 pm. After that we will decide together the exact route for the trip and go grocery shopping for the week. After a briefing on the functions and safety equipment on board and the distribution of roles for the maneuvers of the following two weeks, we go to dinner together to get to know each other. We will make stops at many more places than described here, but where will be decided during the cruise planning with the crew on the day of arrival.


Day 2-3
On day 2, all crew members are taught the basics of sailing, so that everyone can lend a hand during the trip. Even TripMates without any sailing experience can take over individual tasks and later even the helm. You can decide for yourself whether you want to relax in the sun and leave the steering to others or take over the helm yourself. In the afternoon/evening, we anchor in one of the beautiful bays of the island or moor in a marina.


Day 3-5
The next day we continue in the direction of Catania. When planning the cruise, we will decide whether to make a stopover in Milazzo or to sail completely through. Here we also like to take plenty of time for one or the other bath and extensive shore excursions. Rugged cliffs, beautiful bays and white sandy beaches are waiting for us!


Day 5-8
From Catania we start our crossing to Malta. This will also go overnight, so depending on wind conditions we will arrive in Malta during the next day. Here we will visit the surrounding small islands and coastline in the next few days and explore the cultural and scenic highlights.


Day 8-11
On the way to Marsala, we will make a few more stops along the Sicilian coast. If weather and time permit, a stop in Tunisia would also be conceivable. In and around Sicily, we will again have the opportunity to spend time snorkeling, swimming or diving in the water, with hikes and city strolls on land. In the evenings we either cook together or let ourselves be spoiled in one of the rustic coastal restaurants.


Day 11-15
From Marsala we then make our way home. Here we stop several times for swimming, snorkeling and for shore excursions. For this we head for a few beautiful anchor bays and islands. Friday we will dock in Palermo, together we will spend the evening in the marina or in the vicinity. In the course of the next day we leave the boat after an extensive breakfast. We will make stops at many more places than described here, but where will be decided only when planning the trip with the crew on the day of arrival.
