September 27th to October 11th 2016Capri

Rome Italy to Sete France
We left Rome finally 27th September after nearly two years and headed to France.
We had a few problems on the way with steering breaking, the prop falling off,  the heads (toilets) not working and mooring lines getting caught in our prop. But we did managed our last swim while it was still warm on the coast of Italy and visited the lovely little island of Capriaia and seeing then amazing Italian and French Riviera. See Photos below.
Finally Leaving Rome ,waiting for the bridge to open. Flags OUT!!!
