Current Location: Toe of ItalyCurrent Position: 37 57.85 N 016 12.54 E Click to view map. Distance sailed since last post: 60 nautical miles. View the map of our voyage track hereLeaving Catania we were stomping along at 8kts in 20-25 kts of wind. Then, 5 hours later, just six miles from the toe of Italy, the wind totally vanished. Just like that we were back to motoring. However, after an hour the wind picked up again, and now we are stomping along again at 6 kts. All very odd. So how are we publishing posts while at sea? Simple, we decided to scoot along the edge of Italy so we could snag some internet along the way! Seems to be working. But it is dark now, so time to sign off. See you in a couple of days 🙂  
We had a great day yesterday exploring Mt. Etna, but we will write about that shortly. However, we are departing this morning for a  three day sail to Greece. And when we get there, we have to figure out how to connect. So we won’t be online for a few days. We are headed for Corfu and Lefka where we will spend a few weeks. Will be in touch when we can!

Having had them on order, we finally picked up our new anchors in Syracuse. As you can see, the new Rocna 33 – which weighs, uh, 33kg – is quite a bit bigger than our hydrobubble. And, as you can also see, it has a concave shape rather than a convex shape to it. There (Click to Read More...)
