Re: Hi everybody from Italy

Small world

It seems that we have been there probably at the same time in 2008 and 2009. I leaved there the boat in the end of August/September 2008 and was there again in July 2009, to prepare the boat for cruising. In fact I sold that boat in 2009 in Italy and delivered it in Toscania, on the new marina south of Piombino where I believe it is now.

If you like to cruise you have to try Greece: Italy is nice but a pain in the ass with all those limitations to anchor near the beach, 4 different maritime police, very expensive marinas, buoys that go from 35 to 70 euros and natural reserves everywhere (where anchorage is limited). Not many places to anchor either if compared with Greece. Restaurants and diesel are also much less expensive...and the Greeks are very nice.
