Sailors and Walkers...
HI! We are Agata and Leonardo.
We love sailing and traveling around the world on foot. This is the synthesis of what can happen when a sailor who loves the sea and regattas, who has sailed far and wide throughout the Mediterranean, falls in love with an "inveterate" walker (it should be said!) Who has to his credit tens of thousands of kilometers on foot around the world. Then the journeys in Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, Turkey, etc. began, but at the same time, the need to have our own boat grew and so we bought our first sailing boat. It was called "Magic" and it was an old Norwegian 35 foot sloop that gave us so many emotions and adventures.
Over time our passion, instead of being satisfied, has grown and so we asked ourselves how to amplify and share all the experiences made in wandering by sea and on land. So it was that we decided to turn our love for the sea and for travel into a project.
The first need was to find a larger, more comfortable and safer boat in which it was possible to accommodate all those who wanted to share our proposals. We toured half of Europe and in the end here it comes out in our life: Safìra ! A splendid Elan 434 Impression .
The term “Safìra” is full of meanings for us. The name derives from the Greek and means “like a sapphire” . The word "sapphire" in turn derives from the Greek word "sappheiros" or "blue" or it could derive from the Hebrew "sappir" with the meaning of "the most beautiful thing". But for us Sicilians, in our mother language, Safìra means "who is capable of it" or rather "he or she who reaches a goal or an objective". What a better name!
Abbiamo quindi fondato l‘Associazione Sportiva Dilettantistica Safìra Sailing con l’obiettivo di condividere le nostre esperienze di navigatori a vela e di camminatori.
Safìra Sailing è una associazione sportiva dilettantistica che si occupa di promuovere la navigazione a vela e l’esplorazione del territorio a piedi.
L’associazione è affiliata all’A.I.C.S ed è riconosciuta dal C.O.N.I.
