There is much to be said about the anticipation and excitement in meeting up with friends and yacht Songline to embark on a well planned voyage. Our meeting place was Alghero, Sardinia.
After provisioning the boat and settling into our berths, within 2 days we would be heading out for adventures in Mediterranean waters.
Alghero is such a pretty port , laden with history and shows of pride and deep Italian culture. Shopping is incredible, from the modest yet spectacular food markets, a great chandlery , fabulous restaurants and some fantastic luggage,bag and shoe stores. There is an obvious plethora of high-end bathing-suit shops which I suspect could be the legacy of PM Silvio Berlusconi keeping his harem well suited.
