Hello from a sea dog from Italy

I was reading often in this insteresting forum and now...i wanted to be a member.
I am 55 yo owner of a Barberis Show34 placed in north Adriatic, usually i sail in SLovenian and Croatian coastes , but too i have on my shoulder an Atlantic passage from FL to Gibraltar during past May, and a Mediterranean crossing from Corfu to Malaga passing from Malta during past Autumn.
I am an IT specialist and i usually arrange my self all the "jobs" for my boat.
I have a license for teaching sail in the Italian Sail League ..well.thats all
So.... good wind...but not too much to all.

Maurizio

Re: Hello from a sea dog from Italy

Hi Mauricio, I have an Italian flagged boat and have it in Fumicino. Been sailing on the last years on the med, a bit everywhere.

What is a IT specialist? IT means Iate?

Re: Hello from a sea dog from Italy

Montenegro is very nice but on most places it is too deep to anchor. Not crowded, great food and wine at great prices. Kotor is just incredible and by itself deserves a visit. Good anchorage even if windy.

I like Croatia but it become too crowded and expensive. I hate to have to go looking for an anchorage right after lunch...and finding one, being on a nice place, hate to have later a charter putting his anchor over mine.

I prefer Greece even over Turkey, specially the Cyclades and Dodecanese Islands: Great wind (even if sometimes too much) that drives charters away and the crowd.

Next year I will be cruising on the Corinth gulf (I have passed there several times, it has great places but I was just returning home and not cruising with time), the Sporades and the North of Greece. I now that the Sporades are beautiful and I hope not much crowded.

You say your boat is on North Adriatic, where? My boat register is from Monfalcone.

I guessed that there was a good chance you have a boat with a Monfalcone register. No, I have the boat in Fumicino and on the last years I have sailed it to Greece, Turkey and back.

I bought it in Lignano/S. Georgio (MO) and on the first year sailed it on Croatia/Greece and found a not expensive place to leave the boat in Fumicino, near the Airport. I liked the service and prices and stayed there till now. Much cheaper then on Sabbiadoro or S. Giorgio.

Good to know! i was too in SanGiorgio di Nogaro past year!

so which is now your home port in Fiumicino does it a marina or what else?
In MOnfalcone we are around 3300 EUROs per year, "landing and take off" included

Re: Hello from a sea dog from Italy

No, Fiumicino (town) has a Marina but most boats are on the river Fumicino. Have a look at the google earth to see the huge quantity. Several shipyards on the Fumicino (for the ones that don't understand Italian, fiumicino means little river). The stream there is just called Fiumicino, new name for the old Roman Rubicon.

Has I said it is less expensive on the hard there.
