Crewed Catamaran ‘Ombre Blu’
Melissa & Francesco Candiani will be your hosts, captains and chefs during the charter. Melissa was born in Tasmania, Australia and Franceso is a native of Venice. They are a husband and wife and not just a team of experienced ocean sailors and the co-founders of OMBRE BLU, but Melissa is a qualified masseuse and Francesco is a diving instructor. They met for the first time in 2003, when they were competing in a Regatta in Fiji on opposing yachts… The rest is a lovely story that brought them to us after they decided to launch their own yacht and explore Italy with guests. Their wish is to give you a truly local experience in unique and special places, a voyage of discovery. They are passionate about good food and wine and this is one of the focal points of the OMBRE BLU ‘experience’. Together Melissa and Francesco bring a unique combination of experience, skills and expertise (not to mention languages!) to your cruise.
