The adventures of Yacht Flirtie

"Hi, we are sailing yacht Flirtie's crew, Bruce and Caroline. Welcome to our blog.

Sicily, Marina di Ragusa to Portopalo

What can we say apart from better late than never - the Flirties have left Marina di Ragusa. Our planned agenda is eastwards to spend the next few months cruising new territory, that of mainland Italy, Croatia even Greece, all subject to the winds before returning back in October to spend another winter in Marina di Ragusa.

We departed today with no expectations of actually sailing given the forecast so it's been an unexpected and pleasant surprise that we were able to launch our asymmetric and enjoy our first sail, albeit slow to Portopalo the southernmost corner of Sicily. Happy days :-)

Total distance this season: 31.05 nautical miles
