Chasing the Gallinara Island
On my first atemp I ha to give up at about 5 nm from the target, due to darkness… and the fact that I had to face a “storm” during the day.
Decided to give it another try…This time I had reserved three full days to do the journey. Was really lucky with the weather and the wind. I averaged a blasting 5.7 kn on my way there (34 nm), and 4.5 kn on my way back. With the wind always at a favorable angle.

During the last trip I have teared a part the jib in different area. The sail is not that new anymore material is starting to deteriorate. This winter I have bought an industrial zig-zag sewing machine to repair sails and other textile materials. First repairs were hand made…takes quiet some time depending on the size of the repair 😉
27 June – 5 July 2019
Beautiful journey to La Maddalena, with an amazing crew. What a see…hope to go back as soon as possible. Started out in Portisco and sailed 100 NM up and around the Maddalena archipelago.
22-23 June 2019
Storm time, Genova-Pietra Ligure
Weather can change fast…really fast. I was on my way to the Gallinara Island, when suddenly a strong perturbation came in from Savona. Wind pick up intensity, and in no time I had N@40kn. Waves build up quiet fast, and soon I was head to toe wet 😉 Headed slightly down-wind and reefed the main with some good effort. The Jib collapsed at the leech just around the repaired area. Than headed to a cross wind pace and sailed my way out of the bad weather.
Spent the night in front of Pietra-Ligure, wind was dying out so I was able to sleep well. Day 2 was totally different, light wind from the SW…35NM of Gennaker.
