Italy

Some news about Italy:

First, their Weather report, continuously on channel 68 is a joke. Till now they did not get one right and i am sailing here for more than 15 days. Today they forecast Nw 4. It was Se 3. That has been like that all the time.

Another news, at least for me, Italians don't cruise, just stay in the marinas. Yesterday in Siracusa, lovely town and great anchorage, there were 14 boats and I was the only "Italian", at least in what regards the flag.

and the marinas are not cheap. In Marina del'Etna they wanted me to pay 115 euros for a night(I needed water and fuel) only when I said I was going to sail away they let me stay for free on the fuel ponnton that was where i was in the first place, because the marina was full
