We departed the Aeolian Islands today hoping to find some wind for sailing either today or tomorrow as we make our way to Termini Imerese on the north shore of Sicily. No luck with the wind, but we were fortunate to have settled weather for anchoring in Cefalù’s Porto Vechio. We floated peacefully near a rocky promontory, the old city and a long, sandy beach in relatively shallow water (15′). David took the lead in the galley and made a delicious bucatini pasta (hollow spaghetti noodles) with a botarga sauce for dinner. We really love anchoring out.
