14 August 2018 | Sicily
We spent 4 days along the north coast of Sicily since transiting the Straits of Messina. There wasnât much sailing time because the winds were almost non-existent. We had an enjoyable time covering the 140 Nm from east to west. Stops were at Capo dâOrlando, Porticello, San Vito Lo Capo.
We went to the tourist town in San Vito for dinner and had another introduction to Italian culture. San Vito is a major tourist beach town so the streets were filled with people with a party atmosphere. At one point we stopped to watch people in the street dancing to the tunes of traditional dance music being delivered by a DJ. It seemed like everyone knew the steps for all the group dances and there were also many couples shuffling around the pavement.
The 2 marinas we visited were total contrast to each other. Capo dâOrlando opened last year and is very organized and clean with plenty of help to tie up. Fortunately, we arrived early at San Vito Lo Capo before the chaos began. We stayed at one of the 3 marinas in the small harbor that had floating docks. They succeeded in packing in 18 boats in the space of 1-1/2 hour.
Neverland is currently anchored in a large bay surrounded by mountains including the 913 meter high Mount Speziale. We plan to leave this morning heading for the Balearic Islands of Spain. Winds are forecast to be light and mostly on the nose so we will be making some long tacks as we go.
