Olbia via Bonifacio to Alghero
With my experienced sailing companion Kurt we left Olbia tacking against a fresh northerly breeze and spent a windy night at anchor in Cala Granu.
Early next morning we continued tacking in fine weather and northerly winds around Maddalena archipelago to Santa Teresa di Gallura, where we had a good dinner at Pape Satan.
Finally in the evening our second crew Aaron Kaplan came on board - exhausted from a long odyssey in search for his Alitalia lost luggage.
After a refreshing morning swim at Cala Spinosa northeast of Capo Testa we sailed north to Bonifacio, where we visited the old city and her beautiful surroundings and had a good dinner at Cantina Doria.
Next morning after cleaning the ashes from last night's fireworks and refueling we continued to Cala Fazziolu for a swim and then Cala Paragnanu for the night.
On September 10th we sailed southwest to Stintino, where we had a nice fish menu at Da Antonio.
Next morning we sailed to Asinara and spent the night at a bouy in Cala Ponte Bianco. We rounded Pta dello Scorno early next day and sailed 55sm south to Capo Caccia and anchored in Cala del Bollo.
On September 13th we finally moored at Aquatica Marina in Alghero harbor.
We sailed 215sm in 50 hours. You may download our track to view with Google Earth here or view it directly on Google Maps.
