    Sardegna to Barcelona

    October 14 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Off we go and 3 days with crazy swell later we arrived in Arenys de Mar. At 3 am we were successfully birthed. Home away from home.

    Feet on the ground for this year until 2022.

    My heart is truly sad. It was a hard good year.Read more

    Spiaggia Bianca to Porto Ferro

    October 12 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    25 hours later we arrived on the west coast of Sardegna, again hiding out from wind but also preparing for our trip across the dreaded gulf of Lyon. A beautiful bay with a wonderful hike. It feels like the holiday is coming to an end. Should we just stay here and never return to Spain?Read more

    Spiaggia La Cinta to Marina Puntaldia

    October 7 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    The weather eventually got too much for us. We threw in the towel and headed to a Marina. Ok we needed water and Kevin had a birthday surprise for me. Ebbe flew in from Germany a day before my birthday and it was the best birthday ever ❤️. What a wonderful few days we had together to celebrate 🎉 🙌 being in the Marina was amazing and we had a wonderful dinner out. Such a treat.Read more

    Capo Comino to Spiaggia La Cinta

    October 5 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    And here we are. Pleasant enough beach, again chosen for protection from the prevailing winds. A quick sup to get some land time before the wind picks up. The plan us to spend two days here and then head to a marina for replenishment. We were last in a marina getting water on the 25th so not bad. Unlike Croatia and Greece you are prohibited from anchoring closer than 200m from shore.Read more

    Cala Gonone to Cala Sisine

    October 3 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    On the move again to explore the coast but to shelter from the southerly winds. Unfortunately while we escaped the worst of it, we had the horrific swell which prevented sleep. A lovely spot and the opportunity to watch a mountain rescue of 5 climbers from the cliff by brace helicopter pilot in the gusting winds.Read more

    Lipari to Sardegna Cala Ganone

    September 29 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Well we are back on Sardegna and after leaving Greece last Saturday and traveling almost 7 days it’s a relief to be here. I am missing Greece. More than Kevin I think, he looks forward and I dwell on the past, I was very happy in the Ionians. We engined for most of the two trips to get here with the 10 hour break on Lipari Island and this 68 hour was without strong enough wind to switch the engines off. A calm and uneventful trip broken by a visit from a bird and believe it or not a dragonfly.Read more

    Greece Lefkada to Italy Lipari Lido

    September 25 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Farewell Greece, hello Italy. 75 long hours with disgusting winds and a headwind we arrived shortly before midnight to drop anchor on one of the volcanic islands off Sicily. At least the Messina Strait was calm because of the moon and currents were only 2knots.

    A good - dead sleep and a decision to continue the journey to Sardegna and another 3 days at sea.

    The Italians of course in a huge bay decided to drop anchor as we were leaving on our anchor and then disgruntled the picked up but would not move out of the way to retrieve ours. I must confess I went as close as I could to scare them but they didn’t care. Italians!
