Sail Italy & the Amalfi Coast

LEG 1: September 10 to September 20, 2022 (10 nights)
LEG 2: September 21 to October 1, 2022 (10 nights)

Modern Sailing Global Destinations heads to enchanting, picturesque Italy for two 10-night legs cruising its spectacular central coast and the Gulf of Naples. Join us as we explore the colorful playground enjoyed for centuries by emperors, royalty and celebrities.  

From Procida, we’ll set sail for Capri, Cetara and the Amalfi Coast. On layover day, explore the local culture and flavors of Sorrento with day tours of the Pompeii Museum, wineries and markets. Sailing over the blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, we'll visit Ischia Island to experience therapeutic thermal baths. A western heading will bring us to Ventotene Island, one of the Pontine Islands, long favored by Italians and frequented through the ages by Etruscans, Greeks and Romans.

Septembers on the Italian coast are ideal to avoid the crowds and enjoy the tail end of the summer sun. A destination unlike any other, this region offers a rich mix of exquisite foods, culture and history with a wide variety of quintessential tourist activities. Escape the ordinary with the Gulf of Naples and the Amalfi Coast's perfect blend of sun, sea, and sand. 


Sunsail 51

The Jeanneau-designed Sunsail 51 embodies harmonious luxury with a dignified silhouette and spacious interior. The naturally beautiful and versatile yacht offers exceptional sailing and liveability. In the 4 cabins, space, comfort and functionality are key features. Elegant, spacious and responsive, this 4-cabin model was inspired by the successes of slightly smaller models. Jeanneau designed a modern and performance-oriented hull with a hard chine along with elegant and timelessly beautiful deck styling. Inside, the impressive volume and light provides an open and airy feeling. Attention to detail can be found throughout - especially in the safety, function and look of each detail.



Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490

Designed by Philippe Briand and Jean-Marc Piaton, the Sun Odyssey 490 successfully combines contemporary style and graceful handling. The design's hull volume delivers great sailing performance, more interior space for guests' comfort, and more lounge areas topside. The massive cockpit lounge is framed by the iconic walk-around decks, which make movement around a boat easier than ever before. However, the game changer is the convertible coamings. The unfolding seat backs can be reclined to transform the entire aft eight feet of the boat into a sunbathing deck! The open concept interior is bathed in light, as the main salon features many rows of windows and hatches. The central U-shaped galley is optimally placed for meal preparation while under way and ease of service to the salon. Life on board has never been so simple and comfortable!

*These yacht models have been reserved through Sunsail by Modern Sailing but may be subject to change. The three models described are closely similar to any yacht that may substituted in terms of size, layout, and sailing performance.

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

    I started sailing at Modern at the end of 2021 and threw myself into it, spending as much time out on the water as I could. I came to Modern with some flat water dinghy sailing experience and it was quite a transition learning to sail bigger boats in much tougher conditions. There was a lot to learn, but the Modern instructors, Club Skippers and fellow Modern sailors made learning fun and rewarding. My Modern instructors were clearly very experienced sailors and sailing with them was inspiring! I want to thank the maintenance crew and office staff for their dedication and hard work - you are the folks who make things work! There is a lot more to learn and I look forward to sailing with Modern for years to come.

    Captain Jeff Cathers is really cool. I had such a great time on the Farallones Day Trip. It was actually my very best day of 2020. Thank you so much for coordinating the trip.
