A big decision had to be made... where do we go next? North around the top of the island or South towards the bottom. Our decision to head south was made for us after reading various forums that for the months of July and August the NE side in particular gets crowded and should be avoided unless you like crowds - the image below confirms!
various vessels transmitting their AIS (automated identification system) position - OMG. It doesn't show those vessels without AIS!!!
Onto our new destination, the town of Bosa, located roughly 25 miles south of Porto Conte. Unusually the prevailing NW wind didn't transpire so we motored the whole way following the rocky limestone cliffs. RIB's appear to be very popular here. They travel at great speed along the coast stopping to fish, swim, snorkel or dive. Apart from RIB's there were very few yachts around.
eroding cliffs... looks like cement has been trowelled onto the cliff face ;-)
Anchoring is allowed in the bay or behind the detached breakwater, clear of the fairway. We decided that behind the breakwater would do nicely being just a short dinghy ride up river to town.
Total distance this season: 1113.98 miles
