In a suburb of Palermo there is a small anchor field where you can lie at anchor. Otherwise, the Bay of Palermo is quite open to the north and east. On the pier, which is newly built, a gas station was established. We moored up on the 10 m depth and sandy ground. The following day we make our dinghy clear and wanted time to land and see what there was. With the dinghy we drive to the small marina to a floating dock and from there the place. The first thing that strikes us is the garbage, and speak of it and it smells unique. Not far from the Marina is a bus stop. After a short tour in the suburb of Palermo, we still meet with a pair of sailors from Canada, which also lie at anchor and sit in the bar of the Marina. The two have as Canadians an EU issues, because they are now allowed to stay here only 3 months, then their visa runs out. It used to be separate for each country and each 3 months, which is now very difficult to sail here in the 3 months. If only Turkey or Africa start.

So we still continue with reefed sails between 6-7 kt. and in 2 hours we have the great Bay, Golfo di Castellammare crosses, and arrive at Cape Punta Raisi. Here is the airport of Palermo and we can start to see some planes and also land. Again, in addition to Alitalia also Ryanair to see. After 2 1/2 hours we turn south into the Gulf of Palermo.

South of Cagliari, we are a beach in the western corner of a large Bucht.Der beach is well frequented and it is a hive of drift ashore. In the corner is a small marina with a gas station. We ask if we can get water, then we put on at the gas station and then stash away about 450 liters of water. For the 450 liters of the Marina will have 15 EURO! This is absolutely top for water, the marina itself should cost 60 EURO / night, but it is not so here, even a steep price. As in Spain, the prices of marinas are completely lifted, here. The result shows that all the bars are empty and only if used by local residents, which certainly have to pay a lower price. We leave the bay around noon and go with a good wind to the south-east corner of Sardinia to make the jump from there to Sicily.

Afternoon around 1400 clock we are back on board and have everything concerned with what was on our list. We are currently on board, as we see a catamaran, followed by a boat, towards us. We wonder what the two boats going. It clears up a short time later, the catamaran has seen us and wants moored next to us, the boat is a "boat catcher" and had just had no success. "Yacht catcher" is something like a bounty hunter, only the yachts must tear for Marina, then pay the 50, 100, 200 euros per night. In any case eir see that he telephoned after the failure, and we see later with whom! After 1 1/2 hours, the Guardia Costiera (Coast Guard) comes and tells us quite rude, it is not allowed to anchor here. Later, the Italian Guardia Costiera, we will again see how this makes a commercial aufzuprobieren about their image, which appears after what we have seen nothing to be film or not. We go to anchor and go one further bay. ( http://www.guardiacostiera.it )
