Absolute Weekend, Baia 2018
It is just after lunch time when Giancarlo arrives in Baia, in the gulf of Pozzuoli, under the burning summer sun.
He is just in from Varazze, on board an Absolute 52 Fly. Tired, but happy like a little boy who just got off the world’s biggest roller coaster ride. He just bought a new yacht with his brother Salvatore. It is the second day of their trip.
«Yesterday we stopped in Argentario and now here we are». A short break in Naples for the Absolute Weekend, which is a regular appointment among motoryacht fans from central and southern Italy, soaked with that typical Neapolitan hospitality.
Giancarlo comes from Sicily.
«Tomorrow we go back to the South». He is used to navigating in the Mediterranean: the Aeolian, Ortigia, Marzamemi, but also the Aegadian Islands and Ustica. In short,
one of the most beautiful seas in the world.
«When you buy a yacht, you kind of go back to your childhood», he says, smiling. «I am mainly looking for fun». But also comfort. On the pier in Baia, one of the most suggestive places in Naples, smiles and kindness prevail.
