Welcome to the home of Sailing in Naples, Capri and the Amalfi Coast

As well as being dynamic, exciting cities in their own rights, Naples and Salerno are also the starting ports for fantastic cruising of both mainland Italy and nearby islands. You can sail either north to the nearby Pontine Islands, or stay in the Bay of Naples and visit the Partenopean Islands. Typically the sailing around Naples, Procida and the Amalfi Coast involves shorter legs, and incorporates beautiful beaches, rugged landscapes, and plenty of glamorous nightlife.

Highlights of this region include the archaeological site of Pompeii, the Blue Lagoon on Capri, the beautiful volcanic island of Ischia and the popular resorts of the Amalfi coast including Positano, Amalfi and Ravello.

Ischia, Capri, Procida and Vivara are the Partenopean islands in the bay of Naples. To the north of the Gulf are situated Ischia, Procida and Vivara, looking toward the “Flegrea” coast, while in the south of the Gulf, opposite to the Sorrento peninsula, lays Capri. The Amalfi Coast is full of charm, with its mixture of history and nature, all to discover.

Please do bear in mind that the costs around the Amalfi Coast are some of the most expensive in the Med! Capri for example will charge double price during the weekends, which will send the price up to €200 per night for a 50' plus yacht...! Generally mooring fees are €80 per night around the coast but half that for ports south of Agropoli.

Weather and Winds

During the summer months sailing the winds are generally light in the morning coming from a SW – SE direction, with the stronger winds blowing in the afternoon.  The sea and land breeze produce the most predictable wind, with the early morning wind averaging no more than a force 2 and in the afternoon it averages between a force 2 – 5, dying off again at sunset.  In the early morning and at night there may be a light E – NE which will rarely get above a force 2.

In May and October you’ll enjoy temperatures in the early 20’s with the July and August being the hottest months with the over ten hours of daylight and on average the least rain.
