Zavia Anchorage to Syracuse, day 1

Picked up our stern lines in the dark this morning and got underway at dawn, 7am. We have 200nm to go by tomorrow evening when we aim to overnight in the vicinity of Bovalina Marina. On Wednesday we will sail the remaining 80nm to Syracusa in Sicily where we will stay a few days while the unsettled weather sorts itself out.

At the moment it is windstill with a messy NNW swell, so we are motoring with three reefs in the main. ETA Bovalina Marina is around 1600 tomorrow at current progress.

Depression headed for British Isles on the weekend
