Sailing with friends

We are not a charter company, but friends who like to sail

As a member of the Lega Navale Italiana we practice the free teaching of sailing with our own boat according to what is expressed in the statute of the LNI and in our navigation we follow the principles of the statute:

The preference in the choice of crews is aimed at young people who demonstrate enthusiasm in learning seafaring activities.

Sometimes the crews are made up of LNI members and their friends but to make long and demanding navigations, as in the Aegean, the website www.findacrew.net is used. In this site there are the profiles of those who want to embark and based on these it is possible to select the people with the right characteristics.

Photographic Project

Sailing with La Bum

With my photographic project I intend to show the activities that take place aboard my sailing boat “La Bum” during a cruise and the resulting benefits, with the aim of transmitting my experience of sea life to those who get on board to learn the basics of sailing or to enjoy life on the sea.
