Sailing in Sardegna Affair


Sailing is both. A very serious sport and fun recreation one can indulge over summer months. I’m a dear friend of an option number 2. A relaxing time to get away from everyday life.

There is something special about sailing. So many senses and sensations of being free and peaceful come into play. My knowledge about sailing could be written on the back of the postage stamp.

Words like tacking, gybing, hoisting sails or docking do not ring a bell. But I like watching land fading away while boat is gliding across water and swish of the wind in my hair. There is no better bonding experience than sailing together.

We were eighteen all together and two boats. Description of those four days is way beyond word ‘fun’. Apparently we spent more money on wine than fuel what is always a sign of good times. When You start a day from opening a bottle of champagne it is a stated outcome LOL 

Some of my friends are really crazy about this sport. Especially Mr Skipper who organized the whole thing with a little help of his PAs. And I truly admire them. It requires a lot of patience, precision and mental and psychical strength. While watching him and his ‘Sport Barca’ from our ‘Disco Barca’ I got to think that sailing boat is the most beautiful blend of man, machine and nature.

Sailing in Sardinia was an amazing way to discover the island’s hidden beaches, secluded inlets, sculpted cliffs, white houses set upon rocky headlands, bays with shimmering azure waters and charming fishing villages. One of them was Carloforte where we finished our trip.

A picturesque town located on Saint Peter’s Island famous for tuna fisheries which are a symbol of the village. While speciality of most restaurants is delicious tuna in all possible ways seared, cooked, grilled. You name it.

Carloforte is awfully alluring and romantic with lovely cobble stoned Old Town, old Lighthouse, striking churches and lazy squares where kids play football. From nineteenth – century buildings which were housed by former communally – owned Carloforte Tuna Company. Throughout rustic fishing boats in the marina to the seaside promenade, Carloforte is all about authenticity.

Can’t wait to the next trip!

    I think that you are right, sailing allow to discover hidden or at least less famous places. I know Carloforte and is really amazing, the south of Sardegna is full of places with a wonderful sea.

    • So true, this region was really beautiful even though everyone told me to go to the North of the island!
