.:Eco sail

As always, we are fully engaged in good environmental practices both on board our boats and in our daily activities on land. Solar panels and wind generators are our primary energy sources for service on board. On the boat only eco detergents, biodegradable and compostable products and everything is completely recycled.

The motor is used only when the wind (lack of) doesn’t allow us to proceed with navigation. We regularly perform checks and revisions to guarantee optimal conditions for fuel consumption and to avoid the possibility of an oil leak. We pay strict attention to respect of integrity of the places we visit and the seas we navigate in and to all the forms of life that we encounter. We travel slowly, placing particular value on the quality of the trip itself, which does not depend of the time taken or the quantity of things seen, but instead on the ability to observe and the wealth of the relationships created in the group dynamic that is naturally created in every crew. We promote daily in all of our activities an awareness of healthy food consumation.

Our kitchen is almost entirely furnished with local products – ‘at 0km’ and our lunches/snacks onboard represent our area and our sea.
