#20 San Pietro – Departure

After some waiting, I’m leaving Carloforte too. The weather forecast, although not perfect, seems finally acceptable.

200 nautical miles, on a straight line, separate me from Marettimo and from Sicily. In between, the most absolute nothing if not the mythical Skerki Bank with its 50-cm deep Keith Point (but this is another story).

A handful of years ago my Spanish friend and reference Quico Taronjí shipwrecked in this stretch of sea with his kayak trimaran during his journey from Cádiz to Istanbul. I have his project, Aislado, and his book that I highly recommend in mind. I think of you so much, Quico…

A big thank you to Porto Turistico Calasetta and Marinatour – Carloforte for their welcoming and understanding. And most of all, thank you to my friend Salvatore Melis, King of Carloforte and “Tuttofare”, for the unforgettable genuin mediterranean and island-style hospitality.
