2012 High Point YachtFest (HPYF) – Sicily, Aeolian Islands

21st – 29th September 2012:
On the 20th September our brother in arms Daniele, met us at the Palermo Airport. This is where the most fantastic week started. 30 of us spent a great day exploring fascinating city of Palermo, before we were transferred to Portorosa for our week sailing around the Aeolian islands. The temperature was high at that time of the year, so still perfect for swimming and enjoying late evenings outside. Every day we had thermal winds that allowed us to get some fantastic sailing from island to island … Volcano, Lipari, Stromboli, Salina… The scenery was beautiful.We sailed out in the evening to wait below the Stromboli main crater. The prize was fantastic – we saw two big eruptions! An amazing story to tell… With 13 boats and 85 participants, we did our best to have fun together. Our gourmet night, name The Roux night, in the memory of our friend Paul Roux, was again the highlight of the week. Full of good dishes, great wine, fantastic music and wonderful socializing. We have made new friends again and we hope to see them all next year in Croatia! Congratulations to Colin Ford and his team for a great victory!

 

 

 

5th August 2012:

We have reached 13 boats, the biggest HPYF fleet so far! Still just over a month to go… The excitement is growing by day, particularly after John managed to produce another Prospectus masterpiece – HighPoint Prospectus 2012


3rd November 2011:

We announced, a week ago, that next HPYF destination will be Sicily, sailing the Aeolian islands! Within a day, we had 10 boats booked. No wonder, we’ve had fantastic sailing week with HPYF and everyone is coming back again next year. We originally announced that we would cap the numbers to 12, but we might change it to 14 as the interest is high. If any of you would like to join us in Sicily next year, please take a look at the boat selection on the HPYF website:
