About George and Suzie:
- A well traveled and international couple having sailed in many destinations. Both enjoy ballroom dancing and both can teach you many dances. George is determined to practice sailing and handling the yacht, therefore he is looking for one or two participants eager to do some tacks, gybes and maybe even practice mooring if the conditions allow. After sailing both want to explore ancient sites, eat in the local restaurant and relax at a chilled pace.

Join George and Suzie sailing in the Amalfi Coast.
- We are going to sail on the same route as offer on the Amalfitian Blossoms Route
- Additionally, we are going to sail into the Gulf of Naples, to visit:
- Approach the Vesuvius volcano (1281m) from the sea, which itself is a magnificent view! We are going to anchor or moor in the port just at the feet of this incredible and scary mountain.
- Herculaneum, extract from the Wikipedia: `As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is famous as one of the few ancient cities that can now be seen in much of its original splendour, as well as for having been lost, along with Pompeii, Stabiae, Oplontis and Boscoreale, in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 that buried it. Unlike Pompeii, the deep pyroclastic material which covered it preserved wooden and other organic-based objects such as roofs, beds, doors, food and even some 300 skeletons which were surprisingly discovered in recent years along the seashore as it was thought until then that the town had been evacuated by the inhabitants.`
- PompeiI, extract from the Wikipedia `The eruption destroyed the city, killing its inhabitants and burying it under tons of ash. Evidence for the destruction originally came from a surviving letter by Pliny the Younger, who saw the eruption from a distance and described the death of his uncle Pliny the Elder, an admiral of the Roman fleet, who tried to rescue citizens. The site was lost for about 1,500 years until its initial rediscovery in 1599 and broader rediscovery almost 150 years later by Spanish engineer Rocque Joaquin de Alcubierre in 1748. The objects that lay beneath the city have been preserved for centuries because of the lack of air and moisture. These artefacts provide an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. During the excavation, plaster was used to fill in the voids in the ash layers that once held human bodies. This allowed archaeologists to see the exact position the person was in when he or she died.`
