Arriverderci Salerno

It is with sadness that we leave the beautiful city of Salerno, our home for six days.

Preperation began with a walk to a local garage to fill up the spares tank for our tender, as we plan to do a lot of anchoring in the next few days. Two reason. One, the weather is calm with next to no winds and two, were not paying €200 per night for marina berths. So we prepared Arctura for our next leg, which was along the Amalfi Coast and onto the island of Capri. We anchored up at Positimo for a light lunch and then motored up to Capri where we anchored up on the western edge of the  bay of Marina Piccola. Beautiful cliffs towered above us with caves half way up. Hundreds of birds flying in the sky above us and winding their way through the cliffs.

We settled for the night after a wonderful Chilli prepared by Elaine. The night was quite as was the sea state, but later on into the night Arctura pitched and rolled in the swell. The night was uncomfortable but bearable and waking up in this most idyllic location is what sailing is all about. A trip to to land and exploring Capri beckons.

Our anchorage and temporary home.
