A little update from my iPad while sitting in the yacht club in Porto Cervo marina. The photos are taken from my luxurious lounge chair upstairs at the club, overlooking all the sailing yachts which are here for the Loro Piano regatta. My mate Yerin whom I’m staying with is heading up the race team on Twizzle, a 60m yacht, the largest in the regatta.
Yesterday was a lay day for the race crew so yez picked me up from the airport in Olbia then after a quick change into my togs, me and 6 guys from the crew piled into yez’s car and headed to the beach for an afternoon of windsurfing (could be my new fave sport!) and wine! At around 6ish we came back to the apartment, did another quick outfit change then cruised down to the marina for the regatta PizzaParty at the yacht club which was attended by all crew and owners of the yachts in the regatta. And just when I thought I had had my last Naples pizza a week ago, they had flown in the pizza makers from Naples for the party! Of course.
Today racing is currently cancelled as its howling outside and actually too windy for racing a 60m. So we are sipping cappuccinos in the yacht club instead, and waiting for updates on conditions.
Tonight there is a beach party at Baia Sardinia so a little siesta and laze by the pool will be necessary this arvo to prepare.
I’ll take some better photos and post soon as these ones don’t do Porto Cervo justice! It is truly stunning here and pretty nice to be on land enjoying it (all possible because of the generosity of Yezzy!) rather than on board cleaning cabins and hoping to escape for a quick dinner as was the case the last time I was here 7-8 years ago!
