Sailing successes

It’s been exactly two months since I set sail.

Speaking of sailing, yesterday for the first time (at least as far as I remember) I reached the goal of more than 100 miles in a day! Plus, surfing a wave, I reached 8.5 knots!
These numbers are nothing special, but for me, for the little Maribelle, and for the way this adventure took form they’re important milestones.

It’s unbelievable how much did I learn since I started, with hardly any help, just listening and feeling the sea…

The project is conceived and realized by me, Lucio Bellomo, born in 1983 in Palermo, Sicily. Which is also Italy ;-) I am (not proud of being) an engineer in electronics. After the PhD I worked as a physical oceanographer in France, doing research on the physical phenomena that rule the oceans. I took part in several long international oceanographic cruises onboard research vessels. Eager for an even tighter contact with the sea, I left the University and today I work as a diving instructor, both SCUBA and freediving, in small Mediterranean islands and tropical seas. In my spare time I fancy sailing: I began in the Mediterranean Sea and am continuing in the Atlantic Ocean.
