Naturally, we had many squalls 'en route', never comfortable, especially in the middle of the night! Winds rapidly increase, then revert back to absolutely nothing...never ending changing conditions. Bref, 'c'est la vie' en Mediterranean!!
As much as we had planned to sail directly to Marina di Ragusa, the winds, however, decided to send us directly to SIRACUSA, so we accepted, & happily spent a few pleasant days anchored in sticky mud, off this amazing picturesque historical town, our first visit.
So much to discover, we thoroughly enjoyed playing tourists, plus being able to keep an eye on 'Pacific Pearl' anchored not too far off in the bay.
