We should have hoisted the Code 0C.

Lesson still to put to practice more often. Just in case if there's even if only a small chance of light winds we should leave already with the Code 0C hoisted.

Genoa super-stiff especially when closing, there's something wrong.

Engine back on after sailing for 30 minutes, furling the Genoa is insanely difficult without help on the bow.

The views of Capo Caccia from the different angles are amazing, the natural reserve around looks super wild.
