Rock and Roll in Bonifacio
By midday the following day the swell had risen the wind dropped and we were rolling from side to side. We went ashore to try and get some stability and normality. What a relief to sit under a tree.
Returning to the boat we settled down for the night on the floor of the cabin - the only place that had little movement and was safe.
The following morning could not dawn quick enough. While we slept it was not comfortable. We set sail for Ajaccio and rounded the Cape Muro with swell at least 15 meters. The wind was on the beam so we sailed in to the bay and dropped the anchor near the gas terminal buoys.
What a passage through the straits of Bonificia which lived up to its name.
