I really loved the stuff on Sicily. Most of my family is in Millazzo.

Thanks for looking Sal and I am still in the process of updating Sicily as we have been here all winter.
It is not really somewhere we thought of going to but what an amazing Island which has so much of everything. The history in every corner is mind blowing and Ibla (Ragussa) is just breath taking.
There are so many wonderful places here I can never do it justice but the best thing about the island is..
The People..... they are just so friendly and so willing to accept you. We are coming back for winter next year.

Thank you so much for looking at the website and for taking the time to comment as it does mean a lot to us... you are luckily to have relatives here to visit.

Re: Best sailing blogs of 2014

Not sure if this one has been mentioned, but I find this blog very awesome:
http://lindapasquariello.com/
Great mix of adventure and photography, with some racing and maintenance added in.
Makes me want to get in my car right now and leave it all.
Best to start on page 11 and work backwards.

On the last Summer I have been anchored for two times (in July and September) near Milazzo, on the other side of the bay in Marinello (lovely place). Tried to see if it was possible to anchor on the beaches near Milazzo but they had transformed it on a huge Industrial city and the Guarda Costiera don't allow to anchor near the beach.

Marinello is just great with lovely restaurants on the beach. Great place to eat and to go chopping (on Oliveri).

You forget about the wine Lots of varieties and one of the best from Italy. I just love Nero d'Avola.

Re: Best sailing blogs of 2014

PCP,
We anchored just behind the main harbour wall off the beach next to the fuel pump in Millazzo and had no problem with the authorities. The local fishermen there (all sat under trees playing cards) even offered to watch our dinghy and boat but we felt perfectly safe there.
I agree about the wine but having found a local wine merchants near here who sell some cracking stuff at 1.60 a litre it is hard to remember anything.

Re: Best sailing blogs of 2014

Wow, great thread. If next weekend is rainy as well, I'll know where to virtual sail.

There's a video blog I enjoy

https://www.youtube.com/user/WhiteSpotPirates

A young German woman decides do "untie the lines" and set off on an epic adventure beginning in Panama where she buys a boat... it seems, nearly sight unseen.

As you might guess, she discovers it has a few issues. It's awesome for anyone considering buying a used boat or anyone who doesn't mind a toned blonde woman hard at work in the Panama heat, in a sports bra. Aesthetics aside, she seems to be a real trooper, though the issue is still in doubt.

Beej

We learn by doing.

I wish I knew about her last November when we were at Shelter Bay.
