Day three dawns a bit grey and breezy, the night of the living squalls is mostly behind us, though some still lurk in the area. As the squall hits, we get a down pour during the sail change from the heavy #1 to the #2 as our morning wakeup. Once the squall passed, we put the heavy #1 back up and were off to some fine sailing for the rest of the morning.
Today’s course took us between the picturesque islands of Pavignana and Marettimo. More stunning scenery. We were cruising along and enjoying the afternoon of sunshine and fair winds. Something of a reward for our efforts the night before. This is sailing the way the brochure said it would be.
