Ep. 38 Sailing Syracuse to Ragusa, Sicily


Location: Free municipal consortium of Syracuse
Latitude: 37.08000000
Longitude: 15.29000000
Published: 18 Dec 2020

We are almost at the end of our summer sailing season 2020. Our last sail is from Siracusa to Ragusa but before we leave Siracusa we must visit the beautiful old town Ortigia.
We fell in love with Ortigia's narrow lanes, high buildings, baroque style architecture, quaint boutique shops and pure stunning beauty. We will return for a day-out when we are wintered in Ragusa. If you've not been, it is a must see place.
Our sail to Marina di Ragusa was an overnight sail. We hardly had any wind and the sail went without any problems.
We berthed stern-to in the marina, only our 2nd time without any issues and finished our last trip arriving on a lovely warm day.

We are Steve and Annette. We have been together since we were 15years old and believe me that was many years ago. We have 3 children and 8 grandchildren.

Steve used to be a Marina Hoist Operator in charge of yacht lifting operations. He dealt with super yachts, the likes of the J Class yacht's and Oyster Super Yachts and a multitude of other large sailing vessels up to 200tonne as well as the smaller yachts like Cordelia.

Annette was an Operations Manager & Bookkeeper at a marketing company LCM https://www.lcm.co.uk and continues to part-time bookkeep whilst sailing.

We had been planning our cruising life for over 10years and finally at the age of 55 decided that the time was right for us to let the lines go and start living our dream. We love to see new places and enjoy the different cultures of each country. Our long-term plan is to just enjoy it whilst we can, see as many places as we can and share this dream with those you who are interested in watching and joining us.
