SailEATalia - Sicily Culinary & Wine Flotilla

Enjoy a fabulous week sailing around the unspoiled Aeolian islands from Portorosa, Sicily to taste superb homemade wines and sample traditional Italian cuisine. Our lead yacht with professional crew on board will take you to the best places and offer their local expertise of the cruising area. You will also have the chance to cook alongside a professional chef on board your yacht, who will demonstrate how to prepare some of your favorite Italian dishes.

Saturday – Portorosa
Begin your “foodie” flotilla vacation by enjoying some welcome drinks with light appetizers and a wine tasting of local Italian wines.

Sunday – Vulcano
Your island-hopping adventure officially gets underway today with a relaxing northbound sail towards Vulcano. The yachts will anchor in a beautiful bay south of the island before heading to Vulcano Bay of Levente or Ponente (depending on the weather). In the evening, the group will enjoy a delicious fresh fish dinner at a restaurant near the port.

Monday – Stromboli
After departing Vulcano, the flotilla will stop off in Panarea for lunch before sailing towards Stromboli for a picturesque overnight stay. Enjoy some free time exploring the island on your own.

Tuesday – Salina
Upon bidding farewell to Stromboli, the group will cruise to Salina, anchoring up in Basiluzzo along the way. You will dock your yacht in the Salina marina overnight, where there are a number of charming local restaurants to dine at with diverse wine offerings for you to taste.

Wednesday – Filicudi
This day begins with a westerly passage to the lovely island of Filicudi. The group will drop anchor in Pollara around lunch time and then dock in the marina of Filicudi overnight. During your stay, the flotilla will visit a sheep farm on the island and enjoy a locally prepared buffet dinner at the marina.

The next charter stop will bring you and your new flotilla friends to Lipari. Before dropping anchor for the night at the Lunga marina, spend some time soaking up the sun at the famous “spiaggia bianca di pomici” white pumice beach.
