Moving north up the west coast of Italy

A fabulous day sailing close hauled in a force 5 gusting 6 all the way to Livorno. We saw 8.6 knots of speed on the instruments and felt like we were flying! Not much scope to make a cup of tea in the 6 hour journey but hey ho … no worries for the rough, tough sailors that we are!


We stayed in Livorno overnight – a large commercial port. Italian curfew at 6pm means that dinner out is over so we celebrated Shirl’s last night with us over a home made curry and large G&T. Shirley headed off for a flight from Pisa and we continue the journey north – our aim is to get to south west France within a week. We will miss our crew mate!
