Spectacular 4-hour sailing excursion in the Gulf of Cagliari, famous for its ideal sailing conditions thanks to the constant presence of the wind. After an initial briefing in which some basic rules and the best behavior to keep on board will be explained, we will set sails according to the direction and intensity of the wind. Merak will sail the waves towards the Sella del Diavolo, a promontory with high white cliffs, home to seagulls and other sea birds, whose name derives from an ancient popular legend (which will be told during the excursion). Depending on the intensity and direction of the wind, we will then sail to Poetto Beach, where you can swim and snorkel in the crystal clear water that characterizes the area. During the sail, all passengers will be instructed on the basic principles of sailing, on the function and use of the different maneuvers. Everyone will be invited to actively participate in the handling of the boat (sail trimming, tacks, jibes), while breathtaking landscapes will follow one another and, if lucky enough, dolphins will appear along our route.


The state of the wind and the sea could force us to change the path of our sailing experience.
