In this episode of our Sailing Chelsea Blog, we show you the stunning ruins of the ancient city of Nora, along the East coast of Sardinia and explain a little about its fascinating history.
Then we set sail, heading to Cagliari, Sardinia's capital city. We stay there for 2 days doing nothing (!) then decide to head further north to Olbia, as this city is slightly easier to access from an anchorage. It is on this journey that everything goes wrong!
We get hit by a tornado (more aptly known as a water spout) which causes some very scary times at sea. We can not sail as the wind is too strong for us, reaching 60 knots at times, but unfortunately our main sail raises itself up in the wind! This meant it was near on impossible to control the boat and keep it moving in the same direction as the waves. As we turned beam on to the waves and Chelsea leaned right over, we prepared for a capsize!
This episode shows and tells you what happened...
Thank you for watching guys and girls and fair winds!
