The day starts with a short breifing over coffee before (usually) sailing west direction Marseille. There are nine Calanques to discover, some narrow and steep like En Vau near Cassis and the wider calanques Morgiou and Sormiou which make exellent anchorages to picnic, swim, snorkel and paddle board. The coast is riddled with under water caves which remain acessible from the boat after a short swim and once inside you will witness a caleidescope of reflected blue azur.....truly awesome experience. Sailing is not 'rocket science'. I like very much for my crew to help me in all aspects of the days navigation from setting sails to 'throwing' in the anchor and now and then a little bit of electronic 'wizzardry' Who knows after a day on Keltia you might catch the 'bug' like me.
I grew up sailing with my grand father in the english channel and during eight years in the Royal marines crossed the Atlantic and after decided to make sailing a permanant part of my life .Some years on now I bought an Ohlson 38 classic bermudan sloop which serves as a sailing school during the summer months based in Cassis.
Snorkelling paddle board.
My boat and me is a one man band offering a unique instructive way of experiencing this beautiful coastline.
Its a good idea for you to get the marine weather updates for the area Provence 48 hours before the trip. Be advised;winds more than 6 Beaufort will make for rough sailing.
