Sailing Levanto – Pisa 2021

It was 2 p.m., when we were moored and ready to go to the marina office for registering.

Afterwards we swabbed the deck, since Luna Azzurra was incredibly dirty and dried saltwater made the whole surface sticky and yucky!

The Marina di Pisa is quite new, finished in 2013 (I think) and very modern! The restaurant and bar sit in the middle, with yachts – mostly visitors – parked around. Our spot was just beside the bar and restaurant, very handy 🥂

Summer Sailing 2021 (Episode 2)

The sea gate – known as Le Bocche – is another well-known and good protected anchor spot (not too well known, we hoped….). Just opposite the village of Porto Venere lies the largest of the three islands in the Gulf of La Spezia and all of Liguria: Isola Palmaria, with its smaller companions Tino and Tinetto. It forms the archipelago called Arcipelago Spezzino.

Since 1997 Palmaria, together with Tino and Tinetto, as well as Porto Venere and the Cinque Terre, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. (Source: Wikipedia)

Summer Sailing 2021 (Episode 1)

We prepared our SUP’s and sat them into the new holders. They fitted perfectly and Luna Azzurra looked very stylish.

Unfortunately, we discovered that our dinghy was leaking air somewhere. Patrik tried desperately to find the damage……….
It would be very annoying having to leave without it, since we planned to anchor most of the time and do our shore leaves with the tender. OH MAN!!

Summer Sailing 2021

Since we haven’t written a suitable text yet, we present at least a few pictures from our vacations.

Quasi as an appetizer 😉 Enjoy!

Farewell, beloved Odin

On Thursday evening we came home form our vacation and on Friday morning – very excitedly – we picked Odin up from the “cat hotel”. According to the lady who runs the place, everything went fine. We even received a message from her every now and then, with pictures.

Odin was happy to see us and almost jumped into my arms. The drive home went normal and he was very alert, looking around curiously.

At home he got his goodies and he went around the house, as if to check everything was in order (which was, of course). He then went outside in the garden and apparently was also happy what he saw there.

One Week to Go!

Since we’ll skip Corse (again), Patrik figured out a new sailing route and we both are very excited to visit – among other things – the Leaning Tower of Pisa and see the famous coast of Cinque Terre.

Then, we’ll continue our journey further south to Elba, leisurely sail around it, with hopefully some beautiful anchor spots to spend the nights and swim during the days.
