Was ist Mitsegeln "plus"?
Seit geraumer Zeit organisiert Azul Sailing Reisen auf Charter-Yachten. Mitsegeln Plus besteht, wie schon der Name nahe legt, in der Möglichkeit, ein Boot zu “teilen” und lediglich nach Plätzen zu reservieren; 1, 2 oder 3 Personen können mit einer Gruppe anderer Leute segeln. Wie funktioniert das? Sie kommen z.B. nach Barcelona, von wo aus viele unserer Routen beginnen. Sie gehen Samstags an Bord, nachdem Sie vorher Ihre Mitreisenden u.U. verschiedener Nationalität kennegelernt haben. Anhand einer einfachen Liste können Sie sich über die an Bord zu nehmenden Lebensmittel verständigen. Noch am selben Tag stechen Sie in See in Richtung z.B. der Balearen. Der Kapitän verteilt nach vorheriger Abstimmung die verschiedenen Aufgaben an Bord und teilt die obligatorischen Wachen ein. Während der kommenden Woche werden Sie eine der Inseln besuchen. Am Ende der Woche kehren Sie zum Ausgangshafen zurück.
The sailing week
Right after casting off you'll immediately feel the freedom of sailing. While enjoying the sunshine the mainland will fade slowly, until finally the only thing you see around you is water. You will gather for supper, after which you'll slip into your berths, unless you have the first watch where the tranquillity will be magnified. The next morning awaken to the fresh sea air, where you will notice in amazement that still, as far as the eye reaches, the only thing you see is water. If lucky, you'll encounter a school of dolphins, enthusiastically playing with the boat. Around midday a dash of shadow will slowly announce the arrival of one of the islands. The remainder of the week consists of swimming and snorkelling in beautiful crystal clear water in enchanting bays and excursions to age-old harbour cities. Sometimes you'll sleep in the harbour and go out to dinner together, at other times you'll sleep in a bay and cook your own food. At the end of the week you will begin your homeward journey and will eventually arrive in the harbour you left a week beforehand.
Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 52.2 "Empress", date of construction: 2000. This magnificent yacht measures more than 15 meters. It has a blue hull and a teak deck. The ship has four luxurious cabins, all having their own bathroom. You'll share your cabin with one other person. The maximum number of people on board, without counting the skipper, is therefore 8. The yacht is equipped with a large kitchen, warm water, a shower on deck, TV, video, and many other extra's. The skipper has a cabin of his own.
Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 54 DS "Abaco", date of construction: 2003. This yacht measures more than 16 meters and has, just like the other one, a teak deck and a blue hull. This yacht is the latest design of Jeanneau and is provided with all the conveniences you can imagine, identical to it's sister ship "Empress". This ship is fitted out with three luxurious cabins plus one extra for the skipper and is thus available for 6 persons and the skipper. On top of this, the "Abaco" has a small speedboat, which is suitable for water-skiing.
Do you need sailing experience?
No, you definitely do not need any sailing experience. Technically the skipper can handle the boat by him or herself, but he or she will very much welcome participation of crew members. Through experience we know that you can make this trip most worthwhile for yourself when you read the basics about sailing and navigating in advance. You'll be able to understand and apply the art of sailing a whole lot faster this way. This sailing week is also extremely suitable as a sailing course. The skipper can teach you all you wish to know and is enthusiastic about giving the helm to someone else.
What do you have to take with you?
Firstly, it is advisable not to take ´hard´ suitcases with you, these are difficult to stash away, take a foldaway, soft bag with you instead. We recommend you not to take too much with you in any case, after all space on board of a ship is limited. We do advise you to take along the following:
- A (sheet) sleeping bag
- (Beach) towels
- Nautical footgear (no black soles or heals)
- Warm sweater
- Swimming clothes
- Sun glasses and suntan oil
- Cap or hat
- Diving glasses and/or flippers
- Your favourite CD's and cassettes
