July 14th - July 19th, 2020
Working our way up the coast.
We celebrate that we are passing the most southern part of mainland Italy.
Beautiful sunset at our anchorage on south coast of Italy, Bova Marina
Our next anchorage up on the east coast of Italy, Capo Colonna
Vi hiked up to this sad Amphitheater. It was left behind and overgrown. Hopefully it is only because of Covid-19 closings, so they will get it back in shape after all this. Who knows?
Great anchorage inside the pier of the little fishing harbor of Ciro Marina
Left Ciro Marina in the first light. 66nm to go over the bay of Taranto to Santa Marie di Leuca. We were very lucky with the wind. Steady beam reach the whole way, did around 8 knots average
Our anchorage in Santa Marie di Leuca. Very protected, and right outside the marina but inside the big breakwater
It was crowded during the day. But only us and one other boat staying the night.
Sad boat stranded on the shore next to us in Santa Marie Di Leuca :-(
It must have happened recently. The boat was actually in pretty good shape. Wonder what happened??
Bye Bye Italy for this time... Greece, here we come...
