Culture Cruise to Ravenna and Venice

After buying some provisions we left our harbor Marina Stella on Saturday 17th, August 2019 at noon with high tide and entered Porto Buso at 2:00 pm, where we anchored at Isola Anfora near the canal. We enjoyed a sumptuous lagoon lunch at Ai Ciodi and left Porto Buso again motoring south with no wind for Ravenna at 6pm.

My crew Elisabeth, Andreas, Linus and Flora experienced a quiet night cruise and changed watch every 3 hours until we moored in Marina Ravenna 9:00 am next morning. We stayed in Ravenna for 2 nights and visited intensely all the famous sights. A remarkable dinner we had at Mateo.

Tuesday 20th early in the morning we left Ravenna and sailed to Venice with slight southerly winds. We entered Laguna di Venezia through Porto Malamocco and anchored west of Isola Poveglia, where we cooked a wonderful Bistecca Fiorentina and spent a quiet night.

Next morning we motored north through Canale di Santo Spirito, Canale Fasiol and Canale della Giudecca to Isola San Giorgio Maggiore, where we moored in the small marina Compagnia della Vela assisted by a nice marinero. For two days we visited many cultural sites in Venice.

Before dawn on Friday 23th we left Venice through Porto Lido and motored against gusty north easterly winds to Lignano. We reached Marina Stella after high tide at 4pm and celebrated our short culture cruise with a good dinner at Restaurant 900 All’Isola.

We sailed 220sm in 44h during 7 days.
