    Adventurous | Sailboat — 10.97 m

    Anchored in 3 m (half the distance from anchorage pin to beach) clear of local fishing boats on their moorings, but sand was so fine we kept dragging when attempting to set. Diving on the anchor while boat in reverse allowed me to hold the anchor upright until it fully set. Wreck as shown in Navionics and google maps is among fishing boat moorings, and is laying flat on bottom in 4-5m, with highest point of remaining side of hull 3m from surface. Typical North African Medina and Kasbah where every stall owner invites you into their shop ‘just to look’. Their practiced spiel has to be admired, however when they tell you ‘I work at your hotel, and saw you yesterday’, you know it’s all a scam. Amazing ‘Gluten Free’ patisseries, bread, and gelato at Mongelli, opposite the cemetery. We thought we were blessed as we arrived back at our boat just before a rain storm, but after we were enveloped by a smelly brown tide full of floating rubbish that had washed down the stormwater drains, we think we should have anchored further out.

    Nice calm stopover. The wreck marked on navionics so we gave it a wide berth. Anchored in 4 m on sand. Lots of people on the beach with jet ski traffic until sundown and music until midnight, but not crowded in anchorage and quite tame for August. We did not go ashore as we are still flying Q flag until we check in at monastir.

    Good holding in quite strong breeze. Make sure you know where the shipwreck is. We took dinghy to beach and left it near the man renting pedalos. Gave him a small tip.
