Just Passing the Toe of Italy

Current Location: Toe of Italy
Current 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 here

Leaving 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 🙂
