#28 Gallipoli – Arrival

This big leg almost took me four days! Every day the same story, as if following a script: southerlies in the afternoon, northerlies in the night. In between, long and wearing calms. The one around noon, namely, awful for the extreme hot making it impossible to walk or sit on the deck, and me packed in the tiny space at the bow looking for the ephemeral shade of the sails.

Four days are already a good amount of time, especially on the small Maribelle: the land starts to become ethereal, bewitching, unreal.
Luckily, when I enter the harbor in the amazing scenery of Gallipoli, there’s a place all for me. Truly thank you, Circolo Della Vela Gallipoli.

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.
