They have an article regarding sailing on the south coast of Sicily. It confirms what I had said, lots of places to stay (in ports or marinas) but few places sheltered for anchoring...and the places are expensive. They talk about having paid 70 euros for a buoy (prices for boats over 10m).

Maybe you can command the magazine...or send me your email on a PM and I will scan the article for you (I arrived yesterday from Rome and bought the magazine to read on the airplane).

For me Sardinia/Corsica easily beats Sicily. It is not by accident that the French call Corsica "the beautiful Island". In Sardinia and Corsica some marinas are also expensive but you gave a lot more nice places to stay safely on anchor (I have cruising all around both Islands).

Paulo,

You (and others) are convincing Evelyn and I to do the Sardinian cruise.

On the "70 Euros for a mooring", while that is not cheap it is nevertheless, not a problem.

My email is: (all one word- without spaces) Doug Sabbag @ aol

Thank you very much!

Doug
