Anchoring in Paradise

After a quick passage plan we set sail for some anchorages, primarily Spiaggia di Cala Coticcio, or locally know as Tahiti Bay.A wonderrous anchorage full of turquoise and blue colours with fine golden sand beeches. Ed and I took the tender out and landed on the golden sands and I went swimming in the clear, fresh waters of this beautiful bay. Even in mid May the waters were warm if not a little refreshing. 

Passage planning

After a few hours we set sail for and sheltered Bay , Velico Caprera. The wind picked up to 22kts on our sail and arrival, but even in these conditions the bay is sheltered and comfortable with practically no movement, We anchored in 8mtrs of water as per local knowledge given to us in Portisco by a friendly chap by the name of Giusepppe, and contrary to expensive pilot books.

Here are some photos of our overnight anchorage.
