SHORT SAILING TRIPS AROUND GOZO
THE SAILING LABORATORY with the Sailing boat “ABSIRTO”
‘ABSIRTO’ is a 33ft (10.3m) Sunbeam sloop constructed in 2002 at the Austrian shipyard Schochl Yachbau of Salzburg. ABSIRTO has two separate double bunk cabins. Moreover, it has a spacious and comfortable living area where you can have two more berths. This area has a small but comfortable galley, which is equipped with oven and a spacious manhole fridge. Next to it, there is a separate room with a spacious bath/toilet.
This sailing boat is certified to carry seven persons but sleeps six. It is classified in Category ‘A’ of the European Certification and can sail offshore without distance limits. ABSIRTO is not very big; it can host four guests besides the husband-wife crew.
Paolo and Stefania own and run the boat as if it were their child. They have embarked on their sailing experience not many years ago but since the beginning it has been a constant love affair with their boat and the sea. Skipper Paolo is in charge of route planning and tactics while Stefania is the expert in rules, reading the weather and interpreting the wind force and direction. Once outside the harbour the engine is switched off and the sound of silence and of the wind will become part of you. Paolo and Stefania are keen to pass on their love of the sea in a hands-on sailing experience around Gozo and the rest of the Maltese archipelago.
