A record (Log) of jj.boat's travel

Mid Summer 2010








June 16

Arrived Porto Nuove, Presidiana. Cefalu.

June 17 Pam, Norm Ann and Keith leave to make there way to Greece. It will be a few years before we meet up again. We will stay a few days here, till the winds come from the West.

Sicily, Italy.
June 18 to 22 Stayed in Cefalu, strong wind forecast. Saw the town, walked around the coast on a special path, saw a blow hole, where the sea goes into a cave and comes out under pressure as a spout. Went to the Saturday market, the wind cam on the Sunday, lots of other boats re-anchored We just moved about at anchor. We were close to the shore and the wind was like a whirl pool, so we faced all directions. As the wind moved around to the North West we re-anchored by the Sea wall.
June 23

Got up early as the wind was forecast to be better before lunch, but it is not. Waited till 09:30. Wind is now 10 knots.
Left Porto Nuove, Presidiana. Cefalu.
Sailing along at 5 to 6 knot's, all sails up. Sat catching up with e mails. Sunny and warm with a blue blue sea. We are heading for Santa Agata, if it's calm we will stay the night and go on to then island of volcano, Porto di Levante. Not really a pot, just an anchorage.


Porto di Levante.

What a walk/climb

But is was worth it

The view from the top

The view in smoke

I just had to go in and see what it was like, I came out safely

Now lets go down deep into the Earth?
