Alphabet Sea Quest is a sailing expedition around the most beautiful and famous islands off the Italian coast.

 

Our program introduces 13 – 17 year olds to core nautical skills while sailing along one of the Mediterranean’s most idyllic coastlines.

 

Students live aboard yachts working together as a close-knit crew to learn and practice sailing skills under the careful guidance of certified instructors.

Full Immersion English

The whole experience is run entirely in English, from daily instruction on sailing basics to team projects and marine life workshops. All learning is rooted in experiential education with students enjoying a sense of achievement as they put their newly acquired skills to practice. Life aboard a yacht presents the perfect full immersion environment to develop communication and leadership skills which in turn strengthen relationships and build self-reliance.

Program and activities

Students set sail as part of a pair of yachts, each with an experienced sailing instructor and Alphabet crew member. Every day they acquire knowledge that is put into action as they navigate from island to island, setting the course, tacking, jibing, dropping the anchor for a swim or mooring at a marina for the night.

Throughout the journey, students take part in interactive lessons on marine life and cultural history to enrich their time in the water and trekking on land.

Certification

At the end of the journey students are awarded a sailing certificate of achievement together with memories to last a lifetime.
