#19 Sant’Antioco – Arrival

Even though it started well, with more than 100 nautical miles on the first day, that is, more than half the overall distance, it took us two and a half more days to cover the rest. We had really rough seas, a 1-hour break for I was too tired, and more than 24 hours going upwind against a dreary Mistral getting stronger every minute.

Yet here we are in Sant’Antioco, the voyage isn’t over. Amunì!

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.
