Reason for the Question is I am heading for the med. early next year and am looking for a new boat ,I used to own a 48ft Bowman maybe time for a change.
I was worried about finding marinas
in the Med when we sailed there on our Privilege
. I talked to my Kiwi friends and Ozzie friends who had done a circumnavigation
that included the Med, and they told me that they anchored out everywhere in the Med. I found that hard to believe, but since they had been there and done that, I at least knew that it was possible.
We spent about six months in the Med, and we stayed in marinas
only in Israel
, and Turkey
. From the time we left Turkey
, we didn't stay in a marina until we arrived in Trinidad.
in each country vary, you can make a Med cruise
without having to stay in marinas. We checked the price
in one marina in Mallorca, and they wanted $120 for a single
night. We decide to stay anchored out.
Most of the Ozzies and Kiwis that we sailed with did the same. They created itineraries in which anchoring
out was possible. It can be done.
