1000 NM UPWIND – DAY 12/17 (38 PHOTOS)


Otranto – Monopoli 80 NM

I was lucky to be a part of this fabulous adventure 1 and half-year ago. We had to transfer a 36 foot long sailing boat from Finike (Turkey) to Funtana (Croatia). We made it in 17 days and we left 1142 NM behind us. The route was Porec (Croatia) – Wien (Austria) – Antalya (Turkey) – Finike (Turkey) – Rhodos (Greece) – Kos (Greece) – Amorgos (Greece) – Mykonos (Greece) – Athene (Greece) – Chorint (Greece) – Nafpaktos (Greece) – Corfu (Greece) – Otranto (Italy) – Monopoli (Italy) – Vieste (Italy) – Vis (Croatia) – Murter (Croatia) – Unije (Croatia) and home, Funtana. It was the adventure of my life, the 17 best days ever.

Here is the day 12, the 04.10.2010. Otranto – Monopoli 80 NM

We left Otranto at 8:00 in the morning. Wind between 2o and 25 KN. It was a good sailing that day. The South Italy coast is not that interesting from the sea-side, no islands, no small towns practically and not too much traffic on the sea. The best thing that day were the waves. We arrived in Monopoli at 18:15. Monopoli is an interesting small town with a lot fishermen and fishing boats. The atmosphere in the port was like in the old italian movies.

  1. Beautiful photos….I’m looking forward to taking my camera with me on my own sailing adventure. Though I’ll probably have to rely on something like a GoPro in a waterproof housing, if only because where I’m going, things will be getting significantly more “wet’n wild”

    • hmmm … on your place, i would also think about some GoPro or something like that 🙂 i’m not sure if my nikon would survive something like “Round the World Yacht Race” (a i’m also not sure i would survive it). From today i’m your new fan and will follow your blog and your adventure. I wish you a good sea (as we say here in croatia).
