To set sail on Meteor2 there is no need to know how to tie a reef knot or a bowline. Even if seasickness is an unpleasant memory that prevents you from putting your feet back on a boat, you need not worry. The skipper of Météore2 listens to his crew and the priority is always placed on comfort and safety. Trips departing from Naples allow us to spend a good amount of time ashore and the navigation does not exceed 5hrs per day. It is also the energy and the enthusiasm of the crew members that establishes the rhythm of life onboard Meteor2.
