Just ten days to go before the next episode of our adventure begins. We fly out on Sat 13th Sept to move Nimrod from Naples to Malta via Sicily. Our first stop will hopefully be Stromboli, some 160nm from our marina (about 30-33 hours sail), in the Aeolian Islands. Stromboli is an active volcano and can be seen ‘erupting’ several times a year.
Then, after we have explored the islands, we will go onto Sicily and investigate good stops for the coming year before moving onto our final destination – Malta. We have a 7 month berth in Valetta as we want to have some steel work and repairs done over the winter. We also figured that it should be a warm and fun place to visit during the winter as it is relatively close to the African coast. We shall see.
