Ep. 41 Sailing Gibraltar to Sicily - What we did in summer 2020 - SV Cordelia

We sailed from Gibraltar to Sicily during a pandemic and had no idea how and if this was going to affect our sailing season with the virus being rife all over the world. However, we set off in June from Gibraltar and ended up in Sicily in October and despite not being able to do a lot of sight-seeing on land, we had a wonderful summer in the Mediterranean.
We sailed the southern coast of Spain, the Balearic Islands, Sardinia, Aeolian Islands and Sicily. We entertained family and had some wonderful experiences. Each area of the Med has its own individual charm and character and so many times we found it hard to lift anchor to set sail again.
In this episode we take you on a 15minute sail from Gibraltar to Sicily showing you a couple of our highlights of summer 2020.

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. We are now a young middle-age couple who want sail the world as far as we can for as long as we can.

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, 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 are interested in watching and joining us.
