— Our Story —

Hi, we are Agata and Leonardo. We love sailing and traveling around the world. This is 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, which as walked thousands of kilometers on foot around the world. It was so that we decided to transform our love for the sea and the journey into a project. The first need was to find a bigger, comfortable and safer boat, where to host everyone who would like to share our proposals. We looked for a long time and finally here it is: Safìra! A beautiful Elan Yacht 434 Impression. For us, the word "Safìra" is full of meanings. The name comes from the Greek and means "like a sapphire". The word "sapphire" comes from the jewish "sappir" and mean "the most beautiful thing". But for Sicilian people, Safìra means "that is able to". What a better name! We have therefore founded the Safìra Sailing Amateur Sports Association with the aim of sharing our experiences of sailing and traveling. i.
