    Mareas | Sailboat — 14 m

    Anchored somewhere around the mooring buoys, good grip. No swell during the night, during daytime a bit roly. We enjoyed watching the swordfisherboats. Two supermarkets nearby. While aproaching the anchorage a local man recommended to fill up on diesel in Ganzirri for good deals. We had just filled up elsewhere so can't confirm if the price is cheaper.

    GREEN DRAGON | Sailboat — 14.6 m

    After 3 unsuccessful attempts to anchor at Torre Farro and then Ganzirri (very deep, stony bottoms, current pushing us on the rocks) an Italian indicated this anchorage above the port of Messina just behind an area of ​​buoys. Very secure 2 steps from the beach and restaurants. Very happy to have found it.

    Après 3 essais de mouillage infructueux à Torre Farro puis Ganzirri (fonds très profonds, caillouteux, courant nous poussant sur les rochers ) un italien nous a indiqué ce mouillage au dessus du port de Messine juste derrière une zone de bouées. Très sécure à 2 pas de la plage et des restaurants. Très heureux de l’avoir trouvé.

    Haddock 2 | Sailboat — 15 m

    We anchored just on the edge of the mooring buoys for the night, not much wind and no issues with the tide. It is quite deep, about 20 meters so we put 70 m of chain out. Great to see the “passerelles” fishing for sword fish in the morning !
