    Anchorage September 2020. An uninteresting but practical anchorage before crossing Messina, which we crossed without wind, at the level of Gibraltar, with a knot of opposite current. We crossed in the middle of the strait, which allowed the large units to pass either on our right for those going down, or on our left for those going up. Finally, like that, we did not disturb them and vice versa!

    Mouillage septembre 2020. Mouillage sans intérêt mais pratique avant de traverser Messine, que nous avons traversé sans vent, a l etale de Gibraltar, avec un noeud de courant contraire. Nous avons traversé au milieu du détroit, ce qui permettait aux grosses unités de passer soit sur notre droite pour ceux qui descendaient, soit sur notre gauche pour ceux qui montaient. Finalement, comme cela, on ne les a pas dérangé et vice versa!

    Anchored in 5m sand very good hold. The shelf comes up a long way off shore and stays a constant depth right in. Beware there are clumps of big cement blocks under the water about 150m of the shoreline so don’t go in too close. This will also distance you from the non stop barking dogs on shore. We had good protection in East to South-West, and almost no swell. 5nm from the straits entrance.

    A good place to wait for the tides of Messina. Watch your depths
