Sardinian Sailing

I was just getting used to the vagaries of the wind here, anchored near Cagliari, when Gaia came in. What a beauty! 100' of sailing superyacht spent 3 days anchored alongside: They obviously knew I was here!

Finally arrived in Porto Giunco last week after much motor sailing from Sicily and really uncomfortable cross seas. We've had a windy few days here at anchor and little sailing, but hopefully today will see us in Calaforte, on San Pietro (SW corner). The local Ichnuso beer is good, and was very welcome after a tough day yesterday getting the mainsail off to repair the stakpak. Fuel? €1.98 a litre - that is painful!
