back in Sardinia
26st September 2016
Arrived in Sardinia without mishap. The megarich ( Beckham, Jagger et al ) go to the NE corner but we are in the NW corner in a place called Fertilia which is much scruffier and close to Alghero which has an airport. We flew back with Ryanair which was surprisingly good.
The people at the marina are wonderful, they turn up on time, do the job, and don’t charge a lot – couldn’t be better.
So far we have got the Fischer Panda working, a chap climbed
up the mast to replace some rigging, the water maker is nearly working, the
autopilot is working and the horn is finally working.
Since then we’ve done almost nothing. The water maker is
sort of working, the kitchen tap has been reamed out and otherwise all is well.
Italian food remains vast quantities but doubtful quality until yesterday when we went inland to a farm which produced the best I’ve had here. No menu, no price, turn up at 1.00 pm and get what you’re given (6 courses ending with suckling pig) – wonderful.
