The Moorings, a yacht charter company, is adding Portorosa, Sicily as its newest Mediterranean sailing destination. This is the third Sailitalia partner base for The Moorings in the boot shaped country, along with Procida and Sardinia.

The ground covered includes the nearby Aeolian Islands. The Tyrrhenian Sea has a variety of modern and traditional anchorages along with UNESCO-protected waters, which The Moorings say are ideal for snorkeling. A Sicily sailing vacation features views of Stromboli’s volcanic activity to bathing in natural thermal springs and sampling Italian cuisine.

The Mooring passengers can join a “SailEATalia” Sail, Wine and Taste of Italy flotilla, a seven-day sailing vacation at certain dates during the season. The charter experience in collaboration with Sailitalia includes a day with a professional chef who makes authentic dishes to eat and teaches guests how to replicate them at home.
