Welcome! I have been to Greece, (Napflion) and it was a beautiful little area on a bay. Can only imagine how nice it is over there in Sicily.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I've only seen Sicily from the deck of a US Navy Cruiser many years ago. Unfortunately we didn't get ashore.
Good to have you here.
kind regards,

Welcome aboard Candido!

Sicily is a great island, I've been lucky enough to go through there a few times a few years back!

Hi and Welcome..
I went along the south coast this summer and stopped in San Leone for 3 nights due to SW'ly gales... enjoyed some Scicilian hospitality... nice folks..
Sadly... it was a delivery so we had to charge of as soon as things improved.

Welcome...
We have been sailing many times from Corsica to Sicily or via Sicily to Greece or Malta or Tunisia... And we do appreciate a lot this island and the people ... Maybe because we live part of the year in another island (Corsica)...

Thank you all for your welcome.
Dear Taduka, my port is Marzamemi, near Syracuse.
I am familiar with Malta because I participated several times in the Regata Siracusa - Malta.
I posted a few photos of Malta Cruisers & Sailing Photo Gallery> Member Galleries Candido.

Ciao a tutti

Hello Candido
I was in Marzamemi a couple of weeks ago for a weekend with my boat. Are you from Sicilia?

Ciao

Hi Taduka
i live in Rome but I was born in Caltagirone, city of ceramics.
I'll be in Sicily for the Christmas period I will go in my boat.
If you will be in Marzamemi, I'll see you at the Yacht Club
