Great Reach Across to Pantelleria

Current Location: Porto Vecchio, Pantelleria, Italy
Current Position: 36 49.97 N 011 56.57 E Click to view map.
Distance sailed since last post: 81 nautical miles. View the map of our voyage track here

We left Porto Empedocle at 19:30 and had a great sail across in winds varying from 10kts to 25kts, mostly a broad reach, before finally having to motor the last two hours.

We arrived in Porto Vecchio on the North Coast of Pantelleria at 11am only to find Paul and Gabby from Marina di Ragusa waiting on the dock to take our lines!

Tomorrow they leave for Tunisia, and we take over their 25 euro a day car to do a quick tour of the island- including the hot springs and natural sauna. It will be good to explore here, though the town itself will never win any architectural awards!

We will update with photos as soon as we can!

    It seems a lot more real following your adventures when we have just been on the boat. Great sunny weather here.
