We started at Kalami and sailed for three days! On the way we had some pretty wild weather: rain, wind, waves and even water spouts! Now we are in Syracuse, Sicily - a giant two scoop gelato made everything alright.
Yes we were chased by thunderstorms for three days. It honestly felt like they were after us. Apart from that, the crossing was great. It was just under 300nm, our longest sail to date! It took 56hrs, an average of 4.9kts. This is pretty good given the amount of zig-zagging we did at night to avoid thunderstorms. Apart from the thunderstorms (which were isolated to the night), the weather was great. Most of the time the wind was either on our beam or from behind. A special thanks to John for his help and patience finding a comfortable weather window for us.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
