Giglio to Marina di Portisco

We left Giglio at 1430 on the 10th of May, our destination Portisco on the Island of Sardinia.

We had a fantastic time on Giglio with a combination of site seeing, walking, cooking on board and the occasional restaurant. But one of the best experiences was meeting new friends, including a great Swiss chap called Reto and a delightful German family wit two children. Lilli, Oli, Jakob and Emily. We already miss them, but will hopefully maintain contact. One of the most pleasurable things about sailing is meeting people of the same mindset. Here are some photos of our newly found friends.

Our last few hours on this beautiful island were spent walking the quayside followed by a light lunch.

We arrived in Portisco, a 102 miles in a 16 hours sail and it was a sail all the way, averaging 6.4kts with a maximum speed of 8.8kts. Here are some photos and video along the way.
