Ribs and coach boats – April 30 deadline These can be moored in Marina di San Rocco but I need confirmation from everyone who is taking their own Rib (coachboat) or chartering one when you get there. Please e-mail me in any event – even if you have already indicated you are bringing one when you entered. The normal marina fee for the mooring is 39 Euros per day. But if you book the marina berth through me, Golly, the negotiated discount makes the fee: -10 Euros/day for the ribs booked (through Golly) before the 30th April -but 20 Euros/day [...]
