this experience would would receive five stars (Gorgeous panoramas of the coastline peaceful sailing up the shore
beautiful sailboat private bonding time with my family)
for three great days on the water and on shore
However Joe our host / skipper put the experience over the top
The next day he brought us to Positano
thorough command of both English and Italian and skill at handling the craft were invaluable
His knowledge of the area connections with family up and down the coast
If it were simply a matter of visiting the coast by sailboat
and then to the Capris Islands to swim in the pure blue water
The first night he took us to a restaurant at the base of a cliff near Amalfi town accessible only by boat (which we thoroughly enjoyed)
Thanks Joe (and Fabio)
