Hello from Corsica

We, Pat and Erica, have been sailing for many years on our Amphora Ketch, in the Mediterranean.
If you want to have a look at our trip to Croatia 3 years ago, sailing to Sardinia and Tunisia , please go ahead!

Absolutely! Croatia is one place that I definitely want to see. Is the water really as clear as they say it is?

Great video, although I do not speak French, the video said plenty.

Hello to Corsica. I spent many happy weeks their in the 80's. It was one of my favourite spots then. I hope it hasn't changed too much. Back in those days I was more interested in climbing and back-packing (the GR-20 remains one of my all time favourite multi-day walks). I would love to go back and visit as part of a world cruise... maybe one day

Anyway, welcome aboard!

Water in Croatia

Hi David,
Yes, the water there is clear! Not only that: it is always windy; since the sailing takes place most of the time between islands, the sea is "flat" (no big waves); it is therefore possible to turn around an island in a few minutes...to anchor in a protected area. No sand beaches, but intersting rocky places for snorkeling...
Erica and Patrice

Windy, flat and clear. Sounds like my kind of sailing.
