Departing from Bormes-les-Mimosas, you will first familiarize yourself with the sailboat and its basic settings and then set sail for the island of Embiez, an internationally renowned site for boaters and divers! After a night at anchor, you sail to Bandol, then La Ciotat, and anchor near the Calanques de Cassis: Port Miou, Port Pin, and the most beautiful Calanque d’En Vau. Located furthest to the west, it is a long corridor with translucent water bordered by high cliffs where a few pines cling. In the background, a pebble beach and curious stone chimneys sculpted by erosion form a grandiose backdrop.

The night spent at anchor, you will then set sail for Marseille, more precisely on the Frioul archipelago made up of four islands (Pomègues and Ratonneau, If and Tiboulen), the scene of exceptional flora and fauna, an ideal destination for passionate about nature, history, unusual walks and snorkeling.

Instead, we will anchor in Morgiret Cove, which opens to the west of Ratonneau, between Soldier Point and Eyglaudes Island. Surrounded by steep and high rocks, this very wild harbor offers excellent protection from easterly winds. There is a slipway for disembarking in the dinghy at the bottom of the cove and easy access to the Lazaret marina.

Ile Riou is the largest and highest of the islands that extend off the coast of the Calanques. The stone needles at its summit reach nearly 200 meters. The Calanque de Monasterio is one of the few places to stop over.

The navigation will then set off again towards the East with a possible stop in the Figuerolles cove which looks like a smugglers’ den and located at the foot of the vertiginous Bec de l’Aigle, then heading towards the magnificent islands of Hyères (Porquerolles, Port-Cros and Le Levant, also known as the Golden Islands).

By continuing to navigate further east, you will reach the pretty port of Saint-Tropez, Cannes and the Lérins Islands.

Facing the bay of Cannes and the Estérel massif, the Lérins Sainte-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat Islands, archipelago of legends.

Between each stopover, you operate the Pogo 12.50 under the advice of your state-certified instructor who will guide you in your actions in order to acquire autonomy on each position: helm, mainsail, headsail trimmer, piano, mast foot and foredeck.

If the weather permits, you will set off for a crossing to Corsica totaling around 20 hours. Night shifts will have to be organized to keep an eye on the road while being supported by the AIS aboard our Pogo. For your watch, with a little luck you will come across playful dolphins and, who knows, a whale, more precisely one of the fin whales present in the northern third of Corsica.

You will improve your skills in navigation techniques on a nautical chart with a bearing compass, Cras ruler and dry point compasses, but also by using the on-board navigation software.

While sailing at night you will be able to admire the starry sky which seems to revolve around the North Star and may have the chance to see phosphorescent plankton illuminating your wake or dolphins. Even without it, you will feel like you have had an adventure.
