Fast sail all the way over to Otranto and even had the fun of Dolphins playing at the helm. Busy shipping lanes overnight kept us all on our toes and Eric plenty of time to practise his lights. Winds were so favourable we headed on South to M.Saint Di Leuca still arriving by 3pm in time for a cocktail on shore before getting Ellis already for next early departure ...

The ride up the coast was gorgeous with rolling hills and sheer cliffs to the ocean; it was some of the best biking terrain we have seen. Otranto brings back very fond memories of time spent here with friends. We stayed in the same five ...
