pirate CIAO A TUTTI!!!

And that means "HELLO TO EVERYONE" !!!
From Italy....don't worry, I won't start writing in italian, thanks Neptune I can speak and write english. Well, I can write it in italian or in english, the meaning is the same : Happy to be here, sharing my passion and my dreams with you, people, citizens of the Sea.
Despite Italy is surrounded by the Sea, with something about 8,000 (eight thousand) kilometers of coastline, there is an "unreasonable" reason () that the majority of italians do not know what the Sea is...
Anyway, don't want to commmence a discussion about it....just presenting myself :

Captain Mauro (Blood) Mistretta, at your service, dear friends!
Should you need any info about my weird country (sailing wise), feel free!

Aloha Captain,
Welcome aboard!! Good to have you here. My island location is surrounded by the sea too and we have incredibly few sailors.
Regards,
JohnL

Welcome aboard Cap'n Mauro!

I have always wanted to sail in the Sardinia & Corsica area. Hopefully, one day I will make that dream a reality... it is a long sail from Tasmania though, so it might be a while.

Well, dear Weyalan, I will be preparing the drinks for the time you will be in the med! There's plenty of time, I see, but try and get here the quickest as possible, for the temperatures are rising and there's the risk you will find another tropical sea, instead of the typical med....can you imagine the cradle of western culture contaminated by Cuba Libre and Pina Colada? Could you imagine the ol' Socrates drinking a cup of ananas juice instead of the killing venom that killed him?
eheheh, just kidding....anyway, thanks for the welcome and let me know when you are planning to make this passage to the med...meanwhile, you are welcome to try it on my boat.
