Co-Boating Project / Days 6 & 7 - From Costiera to Stromboli

Tuesday 29 September

We are in Costiera Amalfitana, one of the most spectacular places in the World. This is the meaning of the Co-Boating experience: being able to work in fantastic places, often reserved just to those coming from the sea. Just like the Grotta dello Smeraldo, for example. A magical place where the pale light coming from the exterior gives to the water a unique color. A picture is not enough to explain this but I will try to show you, anyway:

Lunch has been special as well. We have been to Adolfo, one of the most famous typical restaurants of the whole Costiera Amalfitana. Here we tasted the best fish of the area in a cheerful atmosphere.

After that we moved to Amalfi, the tiny pearl which gives his name to these enchanted shores. After dinner we got back to the boat to start the last and longest sailing: we are 18 hours far from Eolie Archipelago!

During the long night sailing I try to recall all the emotions and curiosities you can live on a sailing boat:

  • When you get used to the flattering movement on the boat, it does not give you any seasickness. But when you get off the boat, you keep feeling as you are flattering around. Weird. 
  • The water we used for the shower is taken directly from the sea and then filtered. 
  • When no one is on the boat we keep lights and music on just to be sure nobody will steal it :) 
  • When getting closed to harbours, all boats with sails have the priority over all other ships. 

The night and the following morning have passed by without any hiccup. Around midday Stromboli gave us a warm welcome:
