From the anchorage, the western Vulcano can be easily observed and the active volcano when the wind blows from the south, then you came to the volcano also smell good, then the smell of sulfur spreading in the bay. Even with the eye of yellowish sulfur can be made out on the crater rim. Besides Vulcano Stromboli is the second active volcano at the Literary islands. At noon we drive under power to Lipari, but before the site is a high wave and we decide to turn back and anchor back into the western bay on Vulcano. In the afternoon it is fully in the bay. We still get our opinion a good anchorage at 6.5 m depth. Then we arrive the day before clouds and wind on, it could also rain again. But before the rain, the wind always comes first, and then you should be on board. When the wind sets in, then the ships are easy to recognize, m simply have to drop their anchor and good. These ships then usually go on tour. Initially, in Italy we were wondering about the yachts that always had the fenders at the railing on the anchorage, and now we can tell by the ships going to drift. Something Port of us is a Bavaria 46 on the way aft, and then hits a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45 We sit in the cockpit and watch what's to come and also see the back and forth of the two crews behind us. Then the wind decreases slowly, drop a few drops of rain and the situation normalized, this time we have been lucky.
