TOP 5 REASONS WHY I LOVE LIVING ON A SAILBOAT

By |2017-11-30T07:04:02+00:00September 16th, 2017|Categories: Worldcruising|Tags: , , |

Living on a sailboat sure sounds romantic, with sunsets, wine, and platters full of grapes and cheese on the gently rolling stern. In reality, it’s often windy and cold, with spray from waves settling in a light mist over clothes and hair. Sailboats also take a lot of work, and it sure is good to have someone handy on board. I thank my lucky stars that Torsten knows how to fix everything and anything, and I’m in charge of the meals. I call myself the “support staff” for this boat, and that’s just fine with me. There are some amazing reasons to live on a sailboat, and here are a few. 1) WE CAN CHANGE OUR BACKYARD…VERY EASILY. Even on a Wednesday night, we can take our sailboat and go somewhere beautiful. I love sailing our way up Sicily to China Camp, as the sun sets in bright oranges and yellows over the horizon. When we get to our anchorage, it’s so peaceful. Even though we live in a big city, it’s a place to find a little quiet, and we feel like we could be a world away. 2) I LOVE LIVING IN A SMALL SPACE It may seem strange, but I really like the intimacy of a small space. Anywhere on the boat, we can chat with each other, and it’s always nice to have the other person close by. I also love working in the kitchen and smelling the fresh breeze through the companionway. I always feel so connected to nature! 3) SAILING IS EXCITING I love living on the boat because it means I can go sailing, a lot. Sailing is something I love so much. The boat moves slow, at tops ten miles per hour, but it feels like a speeding racehorse as it heels over under [...]

Where to sail in Italy

By |2017-11-13T05:23:42+00:00September 6th, 2017|Categories: Worldcruising|

  Italy offers some of the best sailing grounds in the Mediterranean. The lack of natural harbours and the limited numbers of places in the man-made marinas can make it challenging to find a berth during the summer months. The food is absolutely superb! However, with careful preparation, a few key words in Italian and a little patience and understanding, the rewards will be well worth it. The strength of the wind varies greatly depending on the location and time of year. The islands of Sardinia and Sicily tend to enjoy more wind than the Bay of Naples and the Riviera!   ***Where to Sail in Italy:   Sicily  Sicily is an attractive cruising ground, particularly along the northern and eastern coasts. It has a number of well-established marinas although they can be very expensive in the summer months. There are anchorages at Cefalu  and either side of Palermo. At the western end, San Vito lo Capo also has a comfortable marina and anchorage, which can be very useful in a Maestrale. Off the western end of Sicily lie the Egadi Islands, which provide some spectacularly clear water and secure anchorages. The cities of Trapani and Marsala are attractive destinations, but further round to the south the facilities diminish somewhat. The eastern side of Sicily has some beautiful cities and interesting sailing destinations, in particular: Siracusa, Catania and Taormina are well worth a visit. The marina at Riposto provides ring-side seats for any firework shows that Mount Etna chooses to put on! A trip through the Straits of Messina is made more interesting by the presence of whirlpools at certain states of the tide!     The Tuscan Islands & Argentario.  The islands of Capraia, Elba, Giglio  and Giannutri are all accessible to yachts and provide a number of [...]

We wish summer would never end

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 15th, 2017|Categories: Sicily|

Hello again! Facebook just reminded me of the moment we decided to buy a sailboat in and to sail for an uncertain amount of time. The decision was made 4 years  ago ........   "You’ll realise the Atlantic is just like doing a few smaller passages in a row. It is a seminal moment, as the world seems to shrink. I think that it is a bit like falling in love, in that when it’s time to head off for good, you will just know.” Riley Whitelum Capo d'Orlando was my first solid introduction to "Sicilia" this summer, and it was fabulous. A week of exploring beaches, getting lost on the crumbling old side streets in the hot sun, trying local dishes and hanging out in the markets, it couldn’t have been more local and more special.  The town itself enjoys a spectacular position, looking over the Tyrrhenian sea and facing the Aeolian Islands, with to the rear the imposing green backdrop of Nebrodi.     Dadurch, dass wir jede Seemeile zwischen der Ostsee und Sizilien eigenständig zurückgelegt haben, wird uns gerade klar, was für einen Facettenreichtum verpassen, wenn wir einfach mit dem Flieger darüber hinweg sausen...im Flugzeug bekommt man eben einfach kein Gefühl für die unendliche Vielfalt und Schönheit unserer Erde.    

Sicily- you stole my heart!

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 10th, 2017|Categories: Sicily|

Without Sicily, Italy creates no image in the soul: here is the key to everything.      Make no mistake. Sicily gets under your skin. The largest island in the Mediterranean is a part of Italy but it has a unique character of its own.Sicily is where natural beauty meets humanity in an incredible melting pot of cultures, landscapes and cuisine.Sicily is Italy condensed into a heady mix of sun, natural beauty and ancient history but with its own flavour and rhythm. This soul and passion belong to its citizens. The Sicilian people we met were warm, generous, spirited and helpful. The Sicilian style is a stunning mix of fashion and high quality fabric made in Sicily. Many women wore Sicilian lace dresses for their wedding in several areas of the world. The Sicilian fabric also was the first important decoration  used in the wedding dresses by Sicilian women in the early decades of the past century. Hand made bags  are one of the many proofs of the creative Sicilian style. Throughout Sicily, you notice the colourful Maiolica or Majolica Italian tin-glazed pottery everywhere. On church floors, as shop signs and as colourful heads. There is quite a gory story or legend about the heads with the moral being to never slight a Sicilian girl.  Our time in Sicily left us wanting to explore so much more. On the list: Catania, climb Etna and Trapani. And of course, a trip to Ortigia.Check out more: http://youtu.be/GF1adBNqjTw

Sizilien entdecken mit MPNmarinas!

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 10th, 2017|Categories: Capodorlando, Sicily|

An der Nordküste Siziliens hat jetzt der neue Yachthafen Capo d'Orlando Marina eröffnet. Die wunderschöne Marina ist der ideale Absprunghafen für Törns auf die Liparischen Inseln, um zum Beispiel Stromboli, Lipari, Vulcano & Panarea zu besuchen !Die Anlage hat 562 Liegeplätze und ist eine Full-Service-Marina mit diversen Bootsservices, sanitären Anlagen, Bars, Sushi-Restaurant, Spezialitäten-Restaurant, Bikes, Shops, Waschcenter und ganz bald auch einem Yachtclub. Die Wassertiefe beträgt fünf Meter. Für die Eröffnung gibt es Angebote des Hafenverbundes MPN-Marinas. Gerne geben wir Euch Informationen dazu! Ganz toll: Zum Netz gehört auch ein Concierge-Service, der Gästen hilft, Ausflüge zu spannenden Zielen an Land zu organisieren.Acht Monate im Jahr, von April bis November, dauert die Saison in dem Fischerdörfchen Capo d`Orlando, das wegen seiner günstigen klimatischen Bedingungen auch über den gesamten Zeit zum Baden geeignet ist.Die Strände um den Hafen sind wunderschön und im Hafen-Office spricht man perfekt deutsch. Klasse, hier bleiben wir! 

Cefalù: Langer Strand an alter Stadt

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 9th, 2017|Categories: Cefalù|

Obwohl sie gerade einmal 14.000 Einwohner hat, ist Cefalu eine der bekanntesten Städte Siziliens. Die Gründe dafür sind ein langer Strand, ein großer Felsen und – genau dazwischen – eine spannende Altstadt.Sizilien vereint Berge und Meer. Kaum irgendwo sonst wird das so deutlich wie in Cefalù. Die Altstadt ist regelrecht zwischen beiden "eingeklemmt". Der Berg heisst hier einfach Rocca – also Fels – und ist knapp 300m hoch. Auf diesem Fels liessen es sich seit tausenden von Jahren Menschen in der sizilianischen Sonne gut gehen: Man fand ihre Hinterlassenschaften in Höhlen auf der Ostseite des Rocca. Es ist 14.30 Uhr und wir haben hier 40 Grad im Schatten! I'm glad it's finally hot enough to complain about how hot it is!!!Join me on Instagram:http://instagram.com/biggikrumm.worldvibes

Wer gelassen bleibt, wird sich in Palermo verlieben

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 8th, 2017|Categories: Palermo|

Palermo ist keine Liebe auf den ersten Blick. Laut, hektisch, unübersichtlich – so wirkt Siziliens Hauptstadt bei der Ankunft. Der Verkehr ist nervtötend. Einige Viertel haben so viel Patina angesetzt, dass sie glatt als Slum durchgehen könnten, Stadtpläne erweisen sich als vage.Eine Annäherung an Palermo braucht Gelassenheit. Dann fallen einem zum Beispiel überall violett blühende Jacaranda-Bäume auf. Granita und Cannoli entfalten ein unglaubliches Suchtpotenzial. Beim Anblick der Mosaiken in den Kirchen glaubt man, nie schönere Sakralkunst gesehen zu haben. Vito fährt mich mit seiner Ape durch die Altstadt.Marlene Dietrich, Paul Newman und Alain Delon waren da. Ich natürlich auch. Seit 1834 kommt in der "Antica Focacceria S. Francesco“ (Via A. Paternostro 58) herrlich solide sizilianische Küche auf den Tisch!Natürlich lohnt sich auch ein Markt-Spaziergang. Der schönste ist auch Palermos ältester, La Vucciria, zwischen der Piazza San Domenico und dem Hafen. Wie orientalische Souks sind ganze Straßen mit Ständen durchzogen.Just steps away from the comforts of the new Capo d'Orlando Marina and I am suddenly in old Palermo. As a city, Palermo is a bold mixture of color, heat, noise, and a certain swagger. Several locals emphasize, “We are Sicilian, not Italian.”A Palermo ci sono talmente tante cose e così complesse ..... 

Sicilia: To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to haveseen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.

The Aeolian Islands. Lipari is the largest island in the chain. Here the Archaeological Museum is one of the must-see places – it is tucked inside Lipari Castle, which stands out on the island’s eastern bay in between its best docks, Marina Lunga and Marina Corta. There is also a marvelous Greek acropolis and a Norman cathedral.  Named after the God of Wind, Aeolus, the Aeolian Islands have a reputation for enjoying a little too much of it! However, most of the time they are delightful and they provide some of the most secure anchorages available in the Tyrrhenian.   There are eight islands in all, the last being little more than a rock, jutting out of the sea. Visitors can anchor off the island of Stromboli, who’s active volcano occasionally provides a spectacular light show. The neighbouring island of Vulcano also has an active volcano, and here visitors can enjoy hot springs in the bay and volcanic mud baths ashore. The islands of Lipari and Salina are larger and have attractive towns with well established marinas. On the mainland, the new and attractive harbour of Capo d'Orlando makes a very good stopping off point when on passage to or from the Aeolian Islands.    Dadurch, dass wir jede Seemeile zwischen der Ostsee und Sizilien eigenständig zurückgelegt haben, wird uns gerade klar, was für einen Facettenreichtum verpassen, wenn wir einfach mit dem Flieger darüber hinweg sausen...im Flugzeug bekommt man eben einfach kein Gefühl für die unendliche Vielfalt und Schönheit unserer Erde.   It's time for Cannoli and Granita  (The best you get at Subba Pasticceria, Lipari)        

Salina….Isola slow!

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 5th, 2017|Categories: Liparische Inseln, Salina|

   Wer auf Reisen die totale Entschleunigung sucht, ist auf Salina goldrichtig. Hier herrscht so vollkommene Ruhe, dass sich das grüne Eiland sogar mit dem Titel „Isola Slow“ schmücken darf.Vor allem aber prägen Kapernsträuche die Natur. Die zartroten Stiele mit den runden Blättern brechen wie Unkraut aus Mauerritzen hervor; sie wachsen am Wegesrand und ranken sich über Felsvorsprünge. Ihre Knospen, die Kapern, gelten als besonders exquisit, weil sie kleiner, kompakter und gleichförmiger sind als ihre hauptsächlich nordafrikanische Konkurrenz. 12 Euro pro Kilo haben wir bezahlt, essfertig in Meersalz eingelegt!Salina is the second-largest island, and has the highest reliefs on the archipelago. It is also the home of a beautiful wooded area of ferns (la Fossa delle Felci), located on jagged cliffs above the island’s gorgeous beaches (Pollara being one of the most notable). Don’t miss a visit to the house where the beloved “Il Postino” (starring Massimo Troisi) was filmed, and be sure to taste the renowned granita, a local crushed-ice treat. Straddling a sunny waterfront terrace in Lingua, Alfredo's place is renowned Sicily-wide for its granite: ices made with coffee, fruit or locally grown pistachios, hazelnuts and almonds. For an affordable lunch, try their pane cunzato, open-faced sandwiches loaded with smoked tuna carpaccio, citrus, wild fennel, almond-caper pesto, ricotta, tomatoes, capers, olives and more; split one with a friend – they're huge!Awesome anchorage on tour of Salina..... and it's so hot!!!

Panarea summer vibes

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 3rd, 2017|Categories: Liparische Inseln, Panarea|

        Exclusive and expensive, Panarea is the smallest and most fashionable of the Aeolians, attracting international jet-setters and Milanese fashionistas for a taste of dolce far niente (sweet nothing). In summer, luxury yachts fill the tiny harbour and flocks of day-trippers traipse around the car-free whitewashed streets of San Pietro, the port and principal settlement. Panarea is a strictly summer-only destination.Panarea is the smallest and lowest of the Aeolians (421 m/1,381 ft at its highest, at Timpone del Corvo), but it is also the oldest and attracts boatloads of tourists for its clean water, underwater volcanic vents and its nightlife.Together with the tiny islands of Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca Nera (of which little still remains) and the boulders of Panarelli and Formiche, Panarea forms its own minuscule archipelago with characteristic homes, bottegas and shops. 1kg fresh giant prawns =20 EUR Grazie, ragazzi 🦐🦐🦐More inspiration needed?https://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/10/19/t-magazine/travel/aeolian-islands-mediterranean-guide.html?referer=https://www.google.de/

Impressive Stromboli

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00August 2nd, 2017|Categories: Liparische Inseln, Stromboli|

The Archipelago of the Aeolian Islands consist of seven exquisite islands off the coast of Sicily - Lipari, Panarea, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Alicudi and Filicudi - in addition to smaller islets and giant boulders. They all emerge from an uncontaminated sea, created by still-active volcanoes (Stromboli and Vulcano), and blessed by a savage beauty. TheStromboli is actually the most active volcano in Europe, and boasts frequent, spectacular eruptions that can be best seen from the north.San Vincenzo, the medieval borgo surrounded by very particular white house-boats; the isolated fishing village of Ginostra that clings to Stromboli’s rocky side, accessible only via animal trails; and the Strombolicchio, a giant boulder – of course, born from an eruption! Cena al Ristorante da Zurro:Zurro is an artist said somebody I spoke to. When he’s good, he’s very good. But, said another, yes, he’s like all artists… Zurro – his real name is Fillipo Utano – looks like an old hippy. His face is engulfed by hair, like the mane of a lion, only grey and wiry. We had pasta nera and a mixture of tuna, swordfish, anchovies, and sardines each prepared and preserved in a different way. This is simple food, the cooking of fishermen, says Zurro !!! 

The Bay of Naples: All in all, I can’t recommend southern Italy enough!!!

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00Juli 31st, 2017|Categories: Bay of Naples|

    The Bay of Naples. It is not hard to see the appeal of the Bay of Naples for sailors. On the northern end, the islands of Ischia and Procida are both very accommodating to yachtsmen with several well-equipped marinas and a number of beautiful anchorages suitable in settled weather. In the centre, the famous outline of mount Vesuvius dominates the skyline with a number of marinas lining the coastline around Naples, some more attractive than others! On the southern end, the Island of Capri lies serenely off the Sorrento peninsular. Its harbour is famously expensive, but there is an anchorage to the side of it and a number of spectacular bays suitable for anchoring in settled weather. To the north of the bay, yachts can visit the beautiful Pontine Islands and to the south, the Amalfi coast beckons.

The Amalfi coast and Positano is one of our favourite places & we honestly can’t get enough!

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00Juli 30th, 2017|Categories: Amalfi Coast, Positano|

Perhaps one of the most iconic honeymoon spots in the world! Pair stunning architecture, seaside views, exquisite cuisine and even better wine and you have the perfect recipe for romance. Positano is postcard worthy..... it looks like something out of a dream. The vibe in this tiny village is entirely different than the seaside towns that dot the Mediterranean, but it is just as romantic. The Church is located between the village with it's postcard small streets and the beach ...Let's talk breakfast now. In Italy the typical breakfast is a cappuccino and croissant. If that's your thing, go for it. I personally enjoy a nice healthy breakfast with eggs and veggies. The best place to get your breakfast fix is Casa e Bottega. Everywhere we go now, we wish there were a Casa e Bottega. This is also not just a breakfast place as it's our go to lunch place as well. For breakfast you can get a nice omelette and for lunch enjoy a great salad. It's easy to eat healthy in this cafe. Their desserts are also very tempting, so it's a good place to cheat a little bit, haha. They even have gluten free desserts. Other great restaurants that I recommend in Positano are:  (reservations are a must)Next2 - this is a more modern restaurant that is ran by the same owner of Casa e Bottega. The food is fresh and made out of quality ingredients. Casa Mele - this is also a more modern restaurant. It's fairly new restaurant that is run by a very passionate young chef. Truly great food with a modern twist.Le Sirenuse Hotel Restaurant - best breakfast with the best view of Positano. It's quite pricy, however we think it is worth it. They have a great buffet of local fruits and veggies, salads, pastries, etc.....and please [...]

Capri – Slice of heaven

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00Juli 29th, 2017|Categories: Capri|

Yeah, this just happened. Anchored Victoria right in front of the Faraglioni in Capri. Capri is poetry all over the places: it's magic, it's inspiring.It's always been high on my bucket list to drop our anchor right here...We spent a bumpy night at anchor...What to see:Capri is an island with a lot of caves, coves and steep cliffs that can be admired in all their beauty, especially in the sunlight. If you have just a few hours, in fact, you cannot miss the chance of taking the classic photo in front of the Faraglioni. Then move towards the Giardini di Augusto: a very well-kept true botanic garden dating back to the early 1900’s from where to enjoy an incomparable panoramic view of Capri. Another un missable place is Villa San Michele, a house that belonged to a Swedish doctor who made a place filled with Roman, Etruscan and Egyptian ruins and remains livable . Till this day, the villa preserves this remains which are enriched by a garden of Mediterrean flora. Tradition has it that if you place your left hand in the Sphinx that you’ll find inside the garden and make a wish looking at the sea, your wish will come true. Finally, you wouldn’t want to miss what is considered to be the island’s biggest attraction, the Grotta Azzurra! You can reach it with a small rowboat and just going through the entrance is an experience: to get in you will have to completely lay down  because the opening is just 1m high. Once in, a sea of an almost unnatural color.Beach life. Besides the into the blue of the Grotta Azzurra, we suggest some of the most beautiful and well equipped beaches in the island.  A little street that starts at the Hotel Punta Tragara leads to La Fontelina [...]

Napoli. Anema e cuore!

By |2017-11-12T20:39:06+00:00Juli 28th, 2017|Categories: Bay of Naples, Napoli|

Napoli – schon der Name klingt nach Sonne, Schönheit und purer Lebensfreude. Und irgendwie gilt Neapel seit jeher als magischer Ort – das fängt schon bei Goethe’s schwärmerischem „Vedi Napoli e poi muori“ an. In Deutschland und Frankreich vermutete man in der Stadt im Schatten des Vesuvs sogar die Heimat der Zauberei. Für die Italiener selbst ist die drittgrößte Metropole nach Rom und Mailand ein auf die Erde gefallenes Stück Himmel. Vielleicht sogar der siebte Himmel? Ganz im Geist der Neopolitaner stürzen wir und heute lang ins wilde, südländische Leben! Vecchione, ein großer Ship Chandler hat uns gerade 4 tonnenschwere neue Batterien direkt an unseren Steg in Napoli geliefert, nachdem ich ihn vom Meer aus angerufen habe. Geht nicht, gibt es hier nicht....   Der Motor läuft, die neuen Raymarine-Teile sind eingebaut und die Lufthansa hat die Kids aus München gebracht. Es geht los....Capri wir kommen!

Ischia and Procida…..

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00Juli 27th, 2017|Categories: Bay of Naples, Ischia, Procida|

I wondered why nobody heard of this gorgeous island. Procida is the smallest island in the Bay of Naples and despite its location just a 40 minute hydrofoil ride from Naples it receives nowhere near as many foreign visitors as the neighbouring islands of Capri and Ischia. Procida seems to want to keep its secret to itself, although it’s popular with napoletani looking for a summer escape from the steaming, chaotic city.Procida’s highlight is Marina Corricella, the colourful fishing village that’s built into the rock leading to the sea. The 17th century settlement is traffic-free and can only be reached by stairs in passageways through the houses. Along the waterfront there are piles of fishing nets and patio restaurants where you can enjoy a meal with a view of the Terra Murata and bobbing fishing boats.Don't miss the best Restaurant:Il nuovo Maestrale Castello Aragonese in Ischia is the most iconic of sights on the island. The citadel has stood for nearly three centuries....

Un angolo di Ponza meraviglioso. Cala Inferno è una delle calette più belle dell’Isola.

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00Juli 25th, 2017|Categories: Ponza|

As the sun sets over the rolling hills and pastel houses that encircle Ponza's harbour like an ancient Roman amphitheatre, dozens of tiny fishing boats moored on the quayside are unloading their catch. Moments like this are just one of many reasons why people come out of their way to discover Ponza.Cala Inferno:  It is a lovely rocky bay perfect to relax in the sun and enjoy the crystal clear water.

Ponza und die Pontinischen Inseln – Molto speciale

By |2017-11-12T11:41:10+00:00Juli 24th, 2017|Categories: Ponza|

Buongiorno aus Ponza. Wir haben auf der Höhe von Roma den Gennaker gesetzt und hatten 60 Seemeilen Champagner-Segeln. Juhu, haben es sogar geschafft, mit der Drohne über uns drüber zu fliegen.Es ist wie eine Zeitreise ins Bilderbuch-Italien von früher. Wir ankern in zauberhaften kleinen Buchten aus herausragenden Felsen. Die Farben des wilden Südens blühen auch auf der handgemachten Keramik. Der wilde, pure, heiße Süden: Der frische Mozzarella di  buffala, tiefroten Datteltomaten, riesige Basilikum-Blätter, die vongoletta: alles schmeckt hier irgendwie viel besser. Hier gehört Italia noch den italiani... ihrem Lebensstil und ihrem Tempo! Am Nachmittag ist wieder Land in Sicht. Ventotene. Eine ehemalige Gefangeneninsel, die schon den römischen Kaisern als Verbannungsort diente. 700 Einwohner und eine Piazza mit Bars unter Palmen. Wir leben ein paar Tage ohne Uhr in einer vergangenen Zeit...Unser Liegeplatz für heute Nachmittag ist eigentlich unbeschreiblich....und die Nachbarn sind auch schnuckelig...Résumé: Anema e core. I only live for you!You spell it anima, you pronounce it anema. Your “anema” contains the reason that makes emotions resound, tickle a smile and evoke memories.

   Buongiorno, bellissima Roma!Villa Borghese is so quiet, full of nature and it is just a nice park to go chill in and relax.We are too young to get stuck in a daily routine rut; we need change and new adventures to discover what we like and what we want to do with our lives! Villa Borghese is a great place to explore alone, where you can think and find peace within yourself. And we definitely need time to get lost around this beautiful city.....Don't miss the the Borghese Gallery! In the middle of the beautiful Villa Borghese park is one of Rome’s best art galleries. The Highlights of the gallery include some of Bernini’s greatest masterpieces (such as Apollo and Daphne), the famous Sleeping Hermaphrodite statue!For a very special lunch enjoy the awesome Ristorante Il Gusto: http://www.gusto.it/gusto-al-28/Tonarelli cacio e pepe ! Una meraviglia...Italy can be intense, and for some people Rome is about as intense as they want their vacations to get. I just got a taste for southern Italy this summer, and it wasn’t enough.If you like Italy as far south as Rome, go further south. It gets better. Italy intensifies as you plunge deeper.Roma 🔜Ponza-Napoli-Capri-Sicily

Bella Roma, wir kommen…..noch 120 Seemeilen!

By |2017-11-12T11:41:22+00:00Juli 8th, 2017|Categories: Sardegna|

The early bird catches! Hinter dem Heck liegt Sardinien. Türkis verschwimmt zu royalblau und schimmert dann wieder hellgrün...Die letzten Tage waren ein Traum. Tage zum festhalten. Angenehmer Wind und super Stimmung. Es geht uns so gut und wir fühlen uns frei. Alles ist so weit entfernt, dass es irreal scheint...Wir ahnen zum ersten Mal, dass es  exakt dieses Gefühl von Freiheit ist, welches Langfahrt-Seglern die Rückkehr in den Alltag so schwer macht. Bella Roma,  wir kommen.....120 Seemeilen, also ca. 17 Stunden segeln ...Juhu, nach exakt 17 Stunden legen wir tatsächlich in Santa Marinella in der Nähe von Rom an ...... Die Delphine haben uns begleitet und Mark hat unterwegs ein super Risotto gekocht. Ach ja, wir hatten dann doch 4 Fläschchen Weißwein und Prosecco dazu...ups....Dolce Vita!

The beaches of Costa Smeralda: a Mediterranean dream

By |2017-11-21T13:13:04+00:00Juli 7th, 2017|Categories: Sardegna|

  Choosing Costa Smeralda is about taking a break from the chaotic life and to-do-lists, breathing clean air all year round.  Porto Cervo  A sophisticated resort filled with designer boutiques, quaint little cafes and traditional restaurants, Porto Cervo is a lovely day out if you’re looking to relax in upmarket Italian style. The marina which is lined with many a posh yacht makes for a wonderful evening stroll, or perhaps you’d prefer to wander the pastel coloured maze of grotto-like shopping arcades, absorbing the atmosphere. Our favorite beaches: 1. The Bay of Romazzino, one of the most exclusive and renowned Bay in Costa Smeralda 2. Piccolo and Grande Pevero, a sort of paradise on Earth boasting - among the villas in Costa Smeralda – the most ancient architecture style. 3. La Celvia, one of the most fashionable location, sheltered from the wind, with shallow waters, ideal also for families. 4. The Bay of Cala Granu nestled among pink granite rocks and sheltered by the Mistral wind. 5. Capriccioli, a postcard Caribbean panorama made only of white sand, surrounded by the Mediterranean maquis and pink granite rocks.   6. Cala Moresca in Golfo Aranci, a wonder of nature few kilometers north Olbia.    

3 Sardinien Tipps für Segler!

By |2017-11-12T11:41:23+00:00Juli 6th, 2017|Categories: Sardegna|

    LA MADDALENAWir sind gerade auf La Maddalena,  eine kleine Inselgruppe vor der Nordostküste von Sardinien, auf der Ihr wunderbare und wahrhaft karibische Strände finden könnt. Das Wasser hier ist sehr klar und leuchtend türkis, ein absoluter Traum…Aus dem unendlichen Blau des Meeres ragen bizarr verwitterte Granitfelsen und poröse Klippen aus Glimmerschiefer hervor; auf den grünen Inseln wachsen ungestört duftende Wildkräuter, Lorbeer, Myrthe und Ginster; in den seichten Gewässern um die Inseln leben Seesterne, Anemonen und Korallen, dazwischen tummeln sich Meerbarben, Skorpionfische, Zackenbarsche in den schier endlosen Prärien aus Seegras. Und durch die Meerenge zwischen Sardinien und Korsika , der Straße von Bonifacio, ziehen Schwärme von Thunfischen und Delfinen an La Maddalena vorbei. Die Maddalena-Inseln gehören zu den schönsten Inseln, die das Mittelmeer zu bieten hat: Dank der geringen Wassertiefe zwischen den Inseln und dem hellen Meeresboden aus Granitsand leuchtet das Meer um die Inseln fast zu jedem Wetter in sanftem türkis, kräftigem marineblau oder sattem smaragdgrün.CAPO TESTAHier hat die Natur als Bildhauer gewirkt. Wind und Wellen verwandelten den Granit an der Nordspitze Sardiniens in kolossale Skulpturen. Eine Felsnadel ragt wie eine Galionsfigur gen Himmel, harmonische Rundungen brechen jäh ab in schroffe Kanten. Unweit des weißen Leuchtturms liegt die schmale Cala Spinosa zwischen den Klippen. Manchmal kreuzen Schildkröten den Pfad zum Strand.COSTA PARADISODas Paradies liegt zwischen Felsen und Lagune. Nur ein schmaler Pfad mit knorrigen Ästen als Geländer führt zum Sandstrand Li Cossi. Die kleine Bucht liegt wie gemalt am türkisfarbenen Meer, Steineichen setzen grüne Tupfer auf die ockerfarbenen Felsen.

The straight of Bonifacio!

The inlet of Bonifacio in Corsica is one of the most spectacular natural harbours in the Mediterranean. Situated at the head of a deep fjord, the berths are protected from winds coming from any quarter. The town is divided into the Haut Ville, the old town built on a defensive promotory overlooking the sea, the citadel of which dates back to the 9th century, and La Marine, the area directly adjacent to the inlet, which houses the port facilities. The town takes its name from Boniface II, ruler of Tuscany, who built the first citadel here to protect the southern limit of his domain from Saracen pirates. Bonifacio is the closest harbour to the Italian island of Sardinia and is an enjoyable place to wait for the winds to die down before crossing the Strait of Bonifacio.
