DAY 1: PALERMO - ISOLA DELLE FEMMINE
On this first day we will dedicate the morning to walking around the capital of Sicily and then also to shopping. Many of us will have slept the night before here as there are direct flights on Friday nights.
Once the groceries have been purchased, we will stow them on the sailboat and check in on board. This afternoon we will go sailing and do about 12 miles to the Isolla delle Femmini, where we will spend the night.
DAY 2: ISOLA DELLE FEMMINE - TRAPANI
Today we are about 40 miles ahead, so the skipper will get up early in the morning and we will head west to cross the Gulf of Castellammare until we reach Cape San Vito. Once here we can anchor to bathe and eat. Then we will go down along the coast to the city of Trapani, also known as the city of 100 churches, where we will sleep in the port and in the afternoon we can go to visit its beautiful historic center.
DAY 3: TRAPANI - ISOLA DI MARETTIMO
Today we have a quieter navigation as we will head to Isola di Favignana (one of the three islands of the Aegadians). Once here we will coast its South coast and stop at
bathing and eating in one of its coves. Then we will go to Isola Marettimo, where we will spend tonight.
DAY 4: ISOLA DI MARETTIMO - ISOLA DI FAVIGNANA
Today will be a day to discover corners and coves of Marettimo. We will also see a 12th century Spanish castle from the sea and then we will go to its neighboring island Favignana, where we will spend the night.
DAY 5: ISOLA DI FAVIGNANA - ISOLA DI LEVANZO
Today will be a quiet day to enjoy one of the best coves in all of Italy found on this island of Favignana. In the afternoon we will cross to the third and last island that we will visit here: Levanzo, the smallest of the three but with a very special charm.
DAY 6: ISOLA DI LEVANZO - CASTELLAMMARE DEL GOLFO
Today we will leave the Egadi Islands to go North. We will go along the coast to San Vito lo Capo but if there is a good wind we will extend the route to the picturesque town of Castellmmare del Golfo, a beautiful town that stands out for its Arab-Norman castle.
DAY 7: CASTELLAMMARE DEL GOLFO - PALERMO
It seems a lie but the end is near, today it's time to head to Palermo. We will cross the Gulf of Castellammare. Then we will stop in a cove to eat and then we will coast until we reach Palermo around 5:00 p.m.
DAY 8: FAREWELL
We will leave the sailboat before 09:00 a.m. Those of you who wish to take the opportunity to take a tour of Sicily before returning home.
* The tour may vary depending on the weather or availability of moorings or buoys.
