First Point Of Call - Check In Online!

We advise our guests to complete their online profile information as soon as they have booked, to prevent delays.  If forgotten then it will cause delays to your check in day and more important delays in you boarding your yacht! 

If you haven’t already, please check in and fill out your full profile details on your Yacht Week Profile page.

To check in, you need to fill out the following information:

  • Passport information

Once all is complete, the last thing to do is press that ‘Check in’ button!

*Don’t forget you will need to have at least 6 months validity on your passport to travel, so don’t forget to check its expiry date! 

Check in: 👍

The day has finally arrived! You can smell the exclusive parties and a week of sun! 

Your skipper will be in touch with you and the crew regarding when your yacht will be ready. Check in will take place on board your yacht by your skipper. 

Unlike other Yacht Week trips, you will be leaving the marina that evening by 6 pm, so you will need to be at the marina for around 1 pm. 

Yacht and Cabin Bookings without a Host:
You and your crew will need to make sure your provisioning has been done in the morning, there is a Conad Supermarket 10 minutes from the marina or you can pre order online

Yacht and Cabin Bookings with a Host:
Cabin Bookings: Your host will have your provisions already on board your yacht, however you will need to get your drinks and alcohol for the week! 

Yacht Booking: Arrive at the marina early so you and your host are able to go to the supermarket to get your provisions for the week. 

*Remember to stock up as the supermarkets on the islands can be expensive and limited.

Check out: 👎

You will have a long relaxing final sail back to the base marina, your skipper will make sure to do one last swim stop for you all!

You will get back to the marina you started from around 2-3 pm on Friday afternoon (the exact time varies depending on weather conditions). You will have to finally depart the yacht at 4pm.

Getting there: ✈️

Flights: ✈️
Sardinia is well connected to the rest of Europe by air. Ferries also serve the island from Corsica, Toulon and Marselle. Sicily, Genoa (France),  Livorno and Naples (Italy)and Barcelona (Spain).

International Airport Olbia Costa-Smeralda (OBL) is the closest airport to the starting marina, however you can also fly into Cagliari Airport (CAG). We recommend using a search engine to find the best flights, Expedia and SkyScanner.

Airport to Marinas: 

The International Airport Olbia Costa-Smeralda is less than a kilometer away from the base marina of Olbia. The Airport offers rental car options as well as taxi services to the base. 

Marina Cala dei Sardi

  • This marina is a 25 minute taxi journey from the airport

Marina Olbia

  • This marina is a 10 minute taxi journey from the airport

Taxi:
We recommend pre-booking a taxi with Airport Taxis

Luggage: 🧳

We advise you to bring a soft collapsible duffel bag, as opposed to a hard shell suitcase. This is due to the valuable living space they will take up, meaning less for you and your mates to relax. Take a look here for more guidance on luggage options.

Visas & Passports: 🤞

All travelers will need a passport valid for at least 6 months following your departure date from Sardinia. Make sure your passport has blank Visa pages. Check www.visahq.com for Visa requirements for all nationalities.
