We left Gozo at 8 this morning Andrew and Louise having got off to get a ferry back to the mainland and their flights home.
6.5 hour sail across - windy and still some swell left over from last weeks strong northerlies. A quick sail but went well and we needed to get across before the next northerly Mistral came in. Just made it to The marina at Ragusa. Sat here now warm inside but it’s blowing a hooley out there -25 knots
Two things happened coming across I lost a pAir of sunglasses blown off my head and sadly a hatch had been left slightly open on the lee side which has created a lot of washing owing to the ingress of water!!
So on the homeward stretch. Tomorrow as John still here we will go Ragusa a UNESCO town and explore. He leaves on Tuesday and hopefully we can head further west then but are watching the weather .
Gozo will be finished tomorrow. Having written it 3 times and lost need a break! Also realise I haven’t blogged our time in Malta yet!
