Sailing Club Capoliveri Elba
Sailing in Capoliveri with Il Sailing Club Capoliveri was born in 2002 and is located within the already existing sailing, windsurfing and catamaran school “Centro Velico Naregno located on the homonymous beach of Naregno in the municipality of Capoliveri.
Since 2003, Sailing Club Capoliveri has been a sailing school authorized by the Italian Sailing Federation (FIV ) and mainly deals with sailing courses for children aged 7/8 up to 15/16. Thanks to the large space of the school that hosts us – 3000 square meters of private land facing the sea – children experience lessons on land in maximum safety.
The bay of Naregno, on the east coast of the island, is sheltered by two small promontories – Capo Focardo with its lighthouse on the right and Punta della Princess on the left – which protect it from the predominant winds of Mistral and Scirocco, this allows you to live in the maximum safety even during lessons in the water.
In addition to the favorable logistical position, the Sailing Club of Capoliveri also has qualified instructors and age-appropriate equipment, with the carrying out of games and small regattas, contributing to the achievement of the main objective which is not only the learning of sailing but also to learn to know and respect the sea.
