Porto Conte

Grey skies and rain greeted us this morning but by lunchtime blue skies had returned. We left Cala d’Olivia to make our way towards Alghero through the Fornelli Passage. This passage cuts 20 miles off the journey but it is a tricky channel with back transits and charted depths of 3m, although we didn’t find depths less than 5m. The winds were very light all day so unfortunately we had to motor most of the way. We did get the cruising chute out but there wasn’t even enough wind for that as we wanted to arrive before dark!

On the way down, we passed close by Neptune’s Grotto, which are caves in the rock. We have anchored in a small bay near to Alghero and Isolda went for a swim off the back of boat and reckoned it was quite warm. Liz and Jo weren’t convinced!
