Filled with the unexpected wonderful pictures Tropea has offered to us, we were preparing to sail for another mythic sea, the "sea of sirens". We filled our tank with fuels in Tropea’s marina and our bow was targeting at the end of the southern peninsula of the Bay of Naples.
The lights of marina Piccola had not turned off yet, and we’ve already been travelling at low speed beneath the steep cliffs of the south side of Capri.
We soon arrived near the lighthouse of Punta Carena, where we stood for a while in order to plan our new course. Covering with a towel the electronic equipment of cockpit so as not to ‘blind’ us and sucking the last sips of coffee, we were watching very carefully the sea around us.
Our bow turned to 270 degrees and was heading Lavezzi islands, which are located at the Strait of Corsica, at 173 nautical miles.
