Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The sign on the island is Agip, so Italy? So is that chimney thing an oil/gas vent of some kind?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

so I think the Agip sign is on the fuel dock, not on the island. Still clueless about the chimney unless the tank for the fuel dock is under the island.

Faster: Where do you see an Italian flag?

Edit: I see it

And you are right about that even if now it belongs to the French and changed name for "L'Etoile du Roy".

A shame, a British frigate "captured" by the French



regarding the place some more photos and a big hint. These photos were taken in Easter time. In the Summer it is a bit different, not to say a lot

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The black ship is I think the Black Swan (ex Brynhild, Charles Stevenson) . She is Italian flagged and charters out of a few Italian ports. I'm guessing somewhere up near Naples ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Maybe Corsica or Sardinia ....

Hey .... have you ever noticed how yacht charter companies almost always use scantily clad women in their adverts ?

Just thought I'd bring that to your attention.
