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 planned route. This area is clearly a big summer tourist area, we remarked that it could be the Jersey Shore or Outer Banks of Italy, but this time of year it was eerily deserted. We stopped at a few towns for a stretch and a quick viewing of the town's Saracen tower or castle. While the road was much flatter than Day 5, the headwind got pretty brutal.

We then had to try more classic desserts (spumoni, semifreddo and a coconut cake -- all delicious), since there was no gelato shop nearby. Now off to bed and another ...
... the time came to switch to the dryer someone had poached our dryer. This older gentleman turned out to either know or be related to the guy who took our dryer, so he yelled at him, pulled all the guy's wet clothes out of the dryer and told us to put ours in. Then he got the owner to give us the 10 E in change we were owed out of the machine that wasn't working correctly. He also taught us to count in Italian while we ...
