    We are a small family of 3,5. Alberto, Anna little Emma of 9yrs old + Mustafina & Cino, 2 young "rescue cats" found in Port El Kantaoui (Tunisia), all passionate of freedom and therefore of sailing.
    Our project is to explore the world using our "floating house", our sail boat.

    As her parents, our task is to allow Emma to guarantee her schooling with the same method that she has used during the last 5 years, the method of Maria Montessori, in our opinion the greatest figure of teaching of the last centuries.

    To do that we will have on board some of the Montessori material and We do look for AMI Montessori educators, teaching her on board. Being Emma bilingual italian-french, We look basically for english and french mother tongue WA.
    After have been sailing from France to Italy, Tunisia, Sardinia, Baleari isl. and Spain now we reached the south coast of Algarve in Portugal. We have not yet planned our next summer cruising destination: to the North Europe or going eastward towards Malta, Greece and Turkey.

    We are ready to accommodate a workawayer, providing a private cabin, food for the length of their period (usually an average of 2 weeks) .
    We are trying also with Emma not to be too much dependent from smartphone, tablet or computers. We will use them just for navigation, links with her school video call etc. We ask to WA that will stay with us not to use them while with Emma but just when they are alone.

    Workawayers will have the chance to visit a part of the world by the sea, while learning how to manage a sailing boat.
    We would like to state clearly the following important issues.

    1.Due to this year sanitary crise, We ask WA of showing us a Covid -19 negative test done at least 72hrs before their arrival and one when they arrive. If not, we are sorry but we cannot go through embarking you on our sail boat.
    If yes then We wish to have e video call in order to know each other for the first time.
    2.Our budget can provide for each Workawayer food, a comfortable cabin aboard, boat expenses but unfortunately not your travel, transfer expenses to reach us and return end eventual local excursion/visits .
    3. Smoking is not allowed aboard
    4. Mobile phones or tablets use should be limited during your free time and not to be used with Emma that We are trying to grow up away from a juvenile internet addiction (we use them just for navigation, weather forecast, sailing or school contacts and technical forum)
    5. Valid Visa and passport during the cruise if not EEC citizens
    6. Please if you have any allergies, inform us before embarking

    Please do not hesitate to contact us only if you have red what we are looking for.
    Happy sailing !

    Alberto, Anna and little Emma
