ABOUT

Rapture Surfcamps EST/2003

Franco Scolozzi is the founder of Sail Utopia and a recognised and respected RYA Yachtmaster Instructor. He has sailed extensively in the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean.

He has trained hundreds of skippers and crew members to the highest international standards and delivered yachts to owners all around the globe, which he has extensively travelled himself.

Collaborating with the top European RYA Sailing Schools in Italy, Malta, Croatia and Spain, Franco designed an innovative teaching method that enables everyone to master the art of sailing, easily and quickly. Today, his students can be found circumnavigating the world’s oceans as confident, independent skippers – both recreationally and professionally.

For Franco, however, sailing isn’t just about navigation. He never stopped heeding the ocean’s call for adventure throughout his life, allowing him to get a full understanding of the marine environment, the dangerous nature of the elements, and the cultures of the people he’s met along his journeys.

As many of his students will attest, Franco is more than a simple instructor. His passion for safe and sustainable sailing, respect for the sea-life environment, and commitment to create a stimulating experience will help you learn fast, joyfully, and give you all the confidence you need to attain your sailing goals.

Developing a sense of trust and confidence is primordial on the ever changing seas, which is why Franco’s clients keep coming back for his services – to improve on their sailing knowledge or ensure their yacht safely meets them at the desired destination. He truly hopes he can share his experience and expertise with you, whether you are a first-time yacht buyer or embarking on the sailing holiday of your dreams
