#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.

Good morning from Didyme (Salina’s ancient Greek name), the tallest and most massive among the Aeolian Islands, UNESCO world heritage site.
Thanks to Porto delle Eolie and to Marco Miuccio from the Coast Guard for their welcome and hospitality.
