corsica can be stormy... nothing comparing to carribean, but still really annoying... in the pics one of the strangest storm I was caught by.. (and one of my best mistake as skipper)... tha boat is the fantastic Ilaria a 1965 boat... we were going from chiavari to sardinia so on the <i>quiet</i> side of corsica. A huge thunderstorm was preparing just behind us... as soon as I told the crew; 'don't worry... thw wind is going towards the storm: we're on the good side' the wind shifted by 180° and become quite strong (some 55 knots)... after a little while the wind calmed down an huges pieces of ices were falling from the sky... it was <b>the perfect storm</b> you just neded a glass and a bottle of pastis. wait a while for the ice. pour the pastis then wait a minut to have enough water with your pastis. The only care was to repair your head
