Thursday morning was bright and sunny - we'd had a good nights sleep and set of across the bay towards Palermo motoring as little wind but on the way David wanted to visit this place. A trip down memory lane - he had spent several days In a youth hostel here at the age of 14 with a school trip from Leeds Grammar school visiting sites around Sicily ( they had come by train and boat!) We dropped the anchor in the bay for lunch - he recognised where the youth hostel was ( apparently several of them had swum across the bay in the dark bumping into pumice) . He felt the place had changed little over the many years. Again we would have spent the night there but there was still quite a swell nota lot of water under the keel so we motored on to Mondello which had been recommended to us as good anchorage by another British boat that had come into Trapani. They'd been sailing round Sicily all summer and were finishing for the season.
