2018 July Italian Flotilla

NauticEd Hosted an Italian Flotilla in July 2018

Also, see an awesome Amalfi  trip  video from one of our students, Galen, at the bottom of the page.


July 14-21, 2018

NauticEd is a premier sailing education and certification company. Grant Headifen is the Global Director of Education and will be leading the flotilla.

NauticEd students and guests are invited. Primarily, students will captain their own boats with their friends and family. However, we will gather a list of those who would like to join but are not yet qualified to captain their own boat or don’t have enough crew. We will match you up with those looking to fill their cabins.

A flotilla is a group of yachts guided by an experienced fleet captain through a new destination.

Italy. Start in Solerno. Tyhrennian Sea; Bay of Naples. We will be visiting and exploring the Phlegraean Islands and Amalfi Coast, specifically Procida, Ischia, Capri, Amalfi, Positano, and Sorrento.

Here is our itinerary map below.

Why not? Experience a new charter destination with an experienced NauticEd team.

The NauticEd team are expert charterers having lead groups all over the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Pacific. We will provide pre-charter advice, as well as the course and itinerary, including recommendations of things to do, see, and eat.   NauticEd will also host fun events and social activities.   We will be there for any questions you might have. Of course, you’re welcome to explore as you see fit and deviate from any itinerary.   There are no ducks in a row mentality; this flotilla offers you independence with peace of mind as well as fun and comradery with other flotilla sailors. The focus will be foremost on fun, local foods and wine, and enjoyment of this gorgeous coastal area of Italy. Most sailing days will be 2-3 hours long. There are no long-distance sailing days.

How much does it cost?
The cost is the split cost of the boat (listed below) typically it is around $2000 per cabin. Expect an additional $150 or so in split fuel and mooring field costs each. Then after that, it is your eating out cost and any food and drinks on your boat. Likely you will need at least two hotel nights.

This flotilla is now full.
