sailing around sicily
 
I am planning to sail around Sicily- is there anything in particular I should be aware of?

La Cosa Nostra

Also, since you are sailing around, you will need to turn the wheel in the same direction..basically if you don't turn the wheel, you can't sail around..

Kind of like NASCAR. Turn the wheel in one direction and go round and round.

Ahh yes..they don't speak Swaily there either...

Yes, and saying "va fanculo" is the traditional way to great another sailor.

Giulietta 09-27-2008 02:32 PM

ahh yes...you're right..and over there they only sail when it's blowing above 50 knots and waves above 15...

And these are some of the traditional sailing hats they like to wear. I recommend getting them.

I heard they sail all the time with one edge of the island with its rails down....
