One of the biggest advantages of sailing is being away from the noise of land, and by noise I mean tourists, terrorists, hustle-bustle, pollution, etc. I mainly go into port for either maintenance, weather, or to clean the boat and re-provision, otherwise I like being at anchor -it’s a double free, ie, don’t cost anything and that patch of sea is all urs. That said, shore days are primetime for exploring new cities, lands and food.  Below are images from my afternoon trip to Trapani and Erice, Sicily.
