We're in Mahon and plan to stay here for a couple more days before heading to Mallorca to meet our friends who arrive on Thursday. It's been great to be in a marina for a few days to get things fixed on the boat. Our sails are repaired but we are planning to replace them … Continue reading Mahon
It's been raining on and off the last few days, a good opportunity to test our cockpit enclosure which we are pleased to say does a great job in keeping us dry! Today we are anchored in Cala Teulera, a little bay round the back of a fort at the entrance of port Mahon. The … Continue reading Rain
Yesterday was hot and sticky and today it's raining which is quite a relief. We are heading out today to anchor in a nearby Calla and then will return to Mahon on Monday afternoon or Tuesday to pick up our repaired main sail. We stayed at a floating pontoon in the middle of the marina … Continue reading Still in Mahon

After five days in a marina in a big city, being at anchor again is serendipity. We found a lovely bay just 15 NM south of Cagliari with clear water for … Continue reading Arrivederci

We enjoyed visiting the historic centre and its beautiful cathedral set within very old city walls. Apart from some sight-seeing we spent the rest of our time doing maintenance and fixes to the boat, catching up … Continue reading Cagliari

It was around 5pm yesterday (just in time for dinner!) that we noticed the fishing rod was bent and started pulling it in to discover a tuna at … Continue reading Sardinia
We're off to Sardinia! Bye bye Favignana! We enjoyed being here for a few days and yesterday explored the island which has some beautiful bays and a rugged coastline. It should take us between 24 and 36 hours to get to Sardinia depending on wind speed and direction...
