The freedom offered by sailing allows for various cruise routes. All you need to do is define your goal. Will it be comfortable relaxation, sailing sport or a sightseeing tour? In autumn, most skilled yachtsmen prefer the Mediterranean due to zero risks, great navigation maps, a lot of harbors, and easily available repair and fueling services. There is no danger of piracy, force-9 storms, or big waves. Beautiful weather, low to moderate winds and warm water add up to the perfect formula of peaceful and safe leisure.

Sailing competitions are sport races in various formats. The yachting community calls them regattas (Italian ‘regata, derived from ‘riga’ meaning row, line; starting line). Normally they are initiated by national or international federations of individual classes, yacht clubs or private organizers. As many competitions are held each year, they are arranged in calendars for each class of regattas separately, as well as consolidated ones for the entire season.
