La Graciosa

One of our favorite islands is La Graciosa; a volcanic island in the Spanish Canary Islands. Here we reached shore for the first time after sailing out of the Gulf of Gibraltar. Maybe that is why this island captivated us like it did. The view is also stunning, and the whole island suggests very good…

We have completed the first stage of our journey

We have reached the end of the first leg of our journey. The Canary Islands were the goal and here we are. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we had to start much later and had to shorten our journey, but we still managed to achieve our goal! It reminds me we didn’t even celebrate! It…

Las Palmas, port

24 September 2020 We arrived at midnight on Monday. Beforehand in the afternoon, Domi called the port and we were told to dock the boat behind the reception building, which is in turn behind a large lifeboat, just to the left of the entrance. We docked, then pulled the boat backwards, just in case someone…

Palermo

09.07.2020 04:40 We have left for Palermo, the sun is rising, no wind at all and the sea is completely still. 07:34 Dolphins at the tip of the boat! Sometimes they look like a group of synchronised swimmers. You can clearly see them below the calm water too. What an experience to watch them! They…

Aeolian Islands

07/04/2020 In the morning we continued our sail journey to the Aeolian Islands. We arrived in the city of Lipari in the afternoon. We looked around the bay in front of the city, the anchorage didn’t seem safe in the manic boat traffic which constantly made large waves. Every 20 minutes, a hydrofoil, an hourly…

Otranto – Straits of Messina

1st July – 4th July 2020 We left Otranto in the morning and arrived to Santa Maria de Leuca in the afternoon. We stopped to fill the fuel tanks and visited our Sukosan neighbour, Martin’s boat in the harbour. It was really hot and because we were all quite tired, decided to stop for a…

We have started!
