Description

Sailing opportunities from Saturday 4th May – Wednesday 22 May. There will be a charge for this, depending on the length of your stay - contact us for details.

Our 2019 racing season gets off to a spectacular start with the Rolex Capri Sailing Week.

We will be sailing from Kira’s base in Mahon, Menorca on Saturday 4th May to reach the race starting point in Naples by Thursday 9th May. This is a great mile builder opportunity.

Then the racing gets under way! The first section is an offshore race, the “Regate de Trei Golfi” (the Three Gulf Race), starting in Naples, Italy at midnight on Friday May 10th and covering the 150 nautical miles across the Gulfs of Naples, Gaeta and Salerno to the island of Capri. There are few races in the world with so much history and even fewer with the special atmosphere of a midnight start, but certainly none can boast a race course like the one that the Gulfs of Naples, Gaeta and Salerno can offer.

Depending on the wind and weather, Kira should arrive in Capri around Sunday 12th May.

This race is for experienced sailors only.

The second section runs from Wednesday 14th May to Saturday 18th May, with a series of day races in and out of the breathtaking coastline of Capri. These races are suitable for all standards of sailor.
