Amalfi Coast, Tramontana, Ports & Moorings

All:

Thank you for your help in advance.

A few questions. I'll be sailing a 42' monohull form Salerno to Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi, and back to Salerno in late May 2015.

I've read horror stories about the Tramontana kicking up force 5, 6 and higher squalls out of nowhere. How worried should I be about these? I'm with a relatively inexperienced crew for the duration.

Also, is there anywhere to overnight between Amalfi and Capri? The coast looks barren and harbour-free.

Finally, that time of year, how hard will it be to find berths in Amalfi, Capri, Sorrento?

Many thanks!

Praiano, Positano and Marina del Cantone all have mooring fields. Saw a lot of folk coming and going through the two weeks we were in Positano one August.

No idea for May though.

Re: Amalfi Coast, Tramontana, Ports & Moorings

We'll be doing almost the same trip in September on a 42" from Salerno. We might try to do Capri, Ponza, Ventotene, Ischa, and back to Salerno in a week. Is this too much?

Do we need to make reservations for docking/mooring?

That sounds like a lot of sailing. Its 25 nm capri to salerno and 25 from capri to ischia. The best speed we did was about 4.5 knots. The westerlies mean quite a bit of tacking as you head that way. You'll be spending most of your time on the water and not see a lot of land, especially as the boat isnt ready till 5 pm the first day and has to be back at 4 pm the day before the final checkout day. That gives you only 5 nights out.

In the end we did salerno (pickup), 2 nights amalfi, 2 nights sorrento, 1 night capri, final night back at salerno harbour. Those 20+ nm days took a good 7 hours on the water.

Depending on the time of year (ie if high season) I'd definitely make a reservation for a berth. The mooring fields are completely unprotected and most are owned by a restaurant. The fees for a berth ranged from 70 EUR (amalfi) to 180 (capri).

Hi,
below some contacts

Amalfi - sig. Aniello +39 338 219 3421 (the pontoons on the right after entering the harbour, after the fuel station). Must book in advance and call him before arrival
Capri - Marina + 39 081 8377602 Porto Turistico di Capri - Isola di Capri - Way too expensive!!
Procida - 3 berthing possibilities: Monte di procida, Chiaiolella or Marina di Procida
Ischia - Marina di S.Angelo +39 081 99 99 32 Marina di Sant'Angelo Ischia, Porto di Sant'Angelo Ischia and other places too

Definitely Aniello is your man in Amalfi. He'll even give you lemons and a bottle of wine when you leave. When you approach, boats will come out to lure you into their berths. Just shout, "AHN-YELLO!" and they'll bugger off.

Capri is Giuseppe de Simone (prenotazioni@portoturisticodicapri.com) and it is 180 / night for even a mid-sized boat.

Sorrento if Francesco (+39 347 9186864 / coport@libero.it ) we just booked online and they were great. 80/night just at the foot of the hotel excelsior. Pretty classy!

ENJOY!
