Exploring and more bad weather

by Adrian on June 3, 2007

After a brief rest day where we caught up on a few maintenance jobs and victualling we spent the morning exploring the local islands by bike and then headed out in the afternoon to explore some of the renowned azure anchorages and coves.  

Around La Madellena, Sardinia.


Unfortunately it started pouring with rain, became quite chilly and reminded us more of UK summer sailing than the Med.

With driving rain and force 5-6 winds we cut short our intended leisurely circumnavigation of the Maddelena islands and instead bolted to a sheltered cove and anchorage called Porto Palma on the south of the Isola Caprera. In full wet weather gear we anchored up and spent the rest of the afternoon and evening inside sheltering from the driving rain.
