Sailing in the ITALIAN IONIAN

It is a sad truth that yachtsmen are in this area generally on their way to or from Greece. The towns of Bari and Brindisi round the corner are both visited for their own sake. Here only Gallipolli is worth the detour. For the rest, stop at Sta Maria and Roccella Ionica unless you decide to do it non-stop. Both those marinas are at least safe, whereas the rest of the coast is almost completely exposed. The Norman castle at Castella is attractive and there is a single mooring buoy in the bay if you are lucky and wind conditions at worst moderate..
