2019 Summer sailing around Sicily

Europa is currently in Malta, which is only 60NM away from Sicily.  Since we both started in a new job early this year, we will only have some 3 weeks in summer for sailing...that is much less that the two Months we had last year but it seems enough to sail around Sicily (+/-550NM) and discover the beauties and creeks of this largest island in the Mediterranean sea, with its famous Etna - the tallest active volcano in Europe. It would also allow us to visit the Aeolien islands North of Sicily, listed as UNESCO World Heritage site. If you guys have any tips for "must see/visit" places, please let us know. And if ever you'll be around in July/August 2019, get in touch! 

2018 Our big "European Odyssey"

Last year we have managed to get two full months (July and August) off,  so we decided to go for a small "European Odyssey".  During the winter we said to ourselves why not to sail Europa back to its mythological origins - to the island of Crete. So on 1 July we left Croatia and sailed from Adriatic sea to Vieste in Italy, then to the Ionian sea to Greece and via Corinth canal further to to Athens, Cyclades Islands and down to Crete  (the Island where the mythological "Europa" has been abducted to by Zeus).  After that we continued further to Peloponnese and ended our journey in Malta where we keep Europa during winter to do some basic maintenance.  During this trip we visited 4 countries, 17 islands, 33 ports, and traveled some 1600 nautical miles (3000km)...  

In 2017 we stayed in the Adriatic sea and did some island-hopping in Croatia, between Split and Dubrovnik - a beautiful Mediterranean city with international airport, and many beautiful islands to sail around. You can always check some pics on our Instagram and/or FB... 

2016 was the year we bought Europa in France (Brittany) and made her deliver to Koper in Slovenia. From there we sailed her down 600NM to Slano, close to Dubrovnik enjoying the beauty of the Adriatic sea and its many islands. To mention just few of them, Kornati islands, Murter, Vis, Lastovo, Korcula or Mljet remain our favorite ones... If you envisage to sail around South Croatian cost, we can truly recommend the new ACI marina in Slano, where we spend 2 years  and enjoyed their super friendly stuff and professional services!
