Saturday, 04.08.2018 We do not have many miles to sail today, plenty of time for having one more shower, an really nice breakfast and a refill of the water tank. At 12.00 h we leave this nice place, set sails and head west once more. A thunderstorm threatens us on the northern shore of the large gulf I am crossing, but it sends a nice breeze, too, so feelings are mixed. But we are lucky, and we stay dry.

One of the very few ports my skipper does not yet know on this coast is La Bocca Di Gallipari. The Pilot Book (new last year!) says “safe port with 2.9 m of depth in the entrance”, but coming closer things look completely different. What should be two breakwaters are now two dunes with the leftovers of former breakwaters in the middle of them. But masts can be seen inside, so we give it a try- and with touching the (sandy…) bottom only once, I make it into the small harbour. Three fishing boats, some sailing yachts and a lot of small motorboats are based here. Great beach just on the other side of the dune – and not much more to see… no village in walking distance, no port office. A strange place, lost in space and meaning…
