#17 Capraia – Arrival

Well done, Maribelle!

Here I am in Capraia after 22 hours partly frustrating, partly scary, partly exciting.
First, a gentle night breeze spit me out of the Gulf of La Spezia. Then it all becalmed thoroughly for long morning hours – I’m getting used to this scheme. And finally, suddenly, strong south-westerlies – hence at a close reach – with waves up to 2 m. Having learnt Circe’s lesson, rather wet, we held on, averaging 5 knots for hours, and here we are already!
