The final leg

6th of June 2019

We awoke in our beautiful anchorage where we spent a quite and peaceful night. Yachts were still arriving as we pondered our day. We were going to go into Villasimius marina and explore the town and sights and viewpoints, but decided against it due to Ed’s back, best not risk it. So we prepared Arctura for the final 20 nm leg back to Cagliari.

We weighed anchor at 1150 and as usual set sails immediately. The wind was brisk and steady, between 15 and 17kts, with no gust. We sailed southward so we could put a tach in and make course for Cagliari. The sail was fantastic, pulling between 7 and 7.5kts consistently. Within no time we were at St Elmo marina entrance and mooring up.

And so the end of a months sailing, with wonderful experiences and I for one have learnt a great deal and added it to my knowledge base.

We traveled 880nm. 671 under sail and 209 under engine. We have visited wonderful sights such as Piza, endured high wind and 3mtr waves, river mooring, anchorages, islands and meeting new friends and experiencing new towns and cities and greater foods. It’s a hard life, but someone has to do it. UNTIL THE NEXT ADVENTURE.
