Pisa, Tuscany, ITALY
In Tuscany, Second Star Sailing has its base in Marina di Pisa, in collaboration with the not for profit sporting association Second Star Sailing ASD.
Our base at Porto di Pisa allows us in a one-day sail to reach the isla nd of Elba to the south, followed by the rest of the Tuscan Archipelago, to the south west Capraia island, or even continuing to go grab a fresh truly French croissant in Corsica. To the north we sail to Portovenere, Cinqueterre and the Gulf of Poets. An ideal position to find great destinations for our students depending on the weather.
In Tuscany, we offer all the RYA Cruising scheme courses – which we have subdivides into three levels: Start Sailing, Become a Skipper, Become a Yachtmaster.
We also participate in regattas, from Women’s Cup Italia to the 151 Miglia and the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
We have events and courses created especially for women- and specialty workshops that can range from splicing to diesel engines to Weather Routing.
As always, all or our courses and sailing experiences are focused on enhancing your awareness and self-reliance through the fostering of our Sustainability at Sea programs.
