Tuesday, 07.08.2018 The day starts great with a friendly local delivering fresh croissants right to the breakfast table. And the day stays great, as the southerly breeze is still blowing! For the narrowest part of the Strait of Messina, I need the current with me. And the northbound current starts around 11.00 h, that’s perfect timing. If just the four ferries, that decided to leave port exactly the minute I am in front of the harbour entrance of the ferry port, would not have had the same timing… the smarter boat gives way…

The first harbour after the strait is Scilla. It is 14 miles away from Reggio. I need only nine to go there. The other five miles are courtesy of the current, thank you very much! And thank you for the water music, executed by eddies, ripples and standing waves – and unexplainable, if you have not seen and heard this little miracle.

For the dinner after the smoothest passage through the Strait of Messina my Skipper chose the restaurant with the freshest specialities like Swordfish Carpaccio, Tuna Sashimi, Oysters and marinated raw shrimps. It’s well worth ending a perfect day with a perfect dinner
