Ep. 51 50KNOT winds & TUNA for days | SV Cordelia


Location: Aeolian Islands
Latitude: 0.00000000
Longitude: 0.00000000
Published: 18 Jun 2021

Now that we have had our 1st Covid vaccine we are free for a few weeks and decide to re-visit the Aeolian Islands. With a weather forecast of 20-25knots to take us through the Messina Strait, which we know Cordelia can handle, we set sail. It was an amazing sail but as we approached the narrowest part of the straits we realised the wind was gusting fairly strong. Having safely sailed through we had to make the decision, did we make for Vulcana in the islands or head for refuge in Milazzo. The winds were gusting #50knots and we were very unprepared. However, at these speeds we were able to catch our 2nd ever fish being a #Tuna and we ended up with #tunafordays.

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 work part-time.

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 of you who are interested in watching and joining us.
