On the Run: Roccelle Ionica

Roccelle Ionica is No. 4
You Do Get that Gulfo di Squillace means
Gulf of Squalls Right?

Roccelle Ionicia, Calabria, Italy

The weather was settled as we pulled out of Capo Rizzuto and headed into the Gulf of Squalls.  It stayed that way and we had a super run under sail for six hours across the pretty tame gulf.  
Thank God.  

There being a shortage of anchorages as one comes up on Messina and the Straits we pulled off early, about 1500, and set anchor on the beach just off a little tourist town called Roccelle Ionica.  Holding was good and the music did not keep us awake.
