After a peaceful
night aboard the two Cap Camarat 8.5s, moored together in the port of Bonifacio, and
a quick breakfast on the terrace, we headed in the direction of Propriano, passing
very close to the point of Madonetta.
On a silvery blue sea and under the rising sun, our GPS navigation system allowed ustoskirt the beautiful beaches of southern Corsicaat over 30 knots, under the spectacular rugged mountains of Cagna, all while respecting the protected waters of Corsica’s nature reserve.In just 52 minutes, we reached the recently remodelled, well-sheltered port of Propriano, a beautiful sight captured in photos taken from a helicopter.
Next, we made a 14-hour passage up to the Bay of Sagone,passing through the Sanguinaires Islandsand the Bayof Ajaccio... landscapes to take your breath away. With calm seas, it was an easy passage, and we witnessed dolphins playing in the wake of a tourism boat.
Stopping in the Bay of Porto,with its tall, ochre-coloured cliffs, we prepared for our crossing from Corsica to the Continent, and to our final destination of Cap Camarat, between Saint-Tropez and Cavalaire.
Cruising comfortably for 125 nautical miles, at over 30 knots, we arrived after nearly 3 hours and 30 minutes.The rally ended at 8:00 PM, a total of 323 nautical miles from Sardinia.
Now it’s your turn to discover this beautiful experience.
