Wed 22nd August
Morning at Katanhouse, Punta di Pelarro. Derig the sail for a service: the cam rollers are flat spotted, so the cams put increased wear on mast. Rotate mast so that wear is on a better protected part.
Sail away ahead of an approaching thunderstorm. Quite windy. Upwind - with good breeze - always noisy, wet, jarring, and eventually cold. Push on for 8 miles before the storm gives up the chase, allowing a break to don drysuit.
Around dusk, a brief alien visit - the hum and red LED of a drone, maybe 2km from the coast.
