Cruising W/central Med

Hi to you all

I found this forum surfing for info for Corsica and could not believe it when I found uptodate details on the jimbaerselman site. We have cruised from Guernsey to Almeria 3/12 sailing in the shoulder months and 3/12 working to pay in summer and winter. We are due back in april and I am keen to find a safe place for a july / august haul out expecting the Balearics to be expensive but wondering if Corsica or Sardinia might be better. Then we would head south in early autumn to try to avoid the seasonal winds in that area. I would be glad for any advice and tips based on this provisional plan.

I am Raffa from Rome, Italy.

I wouldn't suggest Sardinia, since it is very expensive. July and August are high season in Italy so Sardinia will be very crowed.
Now I don't have suggestions for you, but I will think about it, and if I will have some ideas I will wright you back.

Albufera, Portugal - has a new, fully equipped and serviced marina but costs for a 34ft Cat were loosely quoted as 5k euro per year. We fly into Faro from Southampton and see many boats anchored in the river estuary network there.
Ex Prout 31 Sailor, Now it's a 22ft Jaguar called 'Arfur' here in sunny Southampton, UK.
A few places left in Quayside Marina and Kemps Marina.
