Evening spent in beautiful Carloforte, where we stopped during the return as well, no problem with marinas and assistance for berthing, pleanty of places in a big commerical and tourist port.

Next day about 70 miles from Carloforte to Bosa, also 9 hours sailing/motoring watching the Sardinia West Coast from a bigger distance as sailed North heading to Capo Mannu therefore passing by near to the Pan di Zucchero and mines area, Portisceddu beaches, watching the Capo Frasca and Capo San Marco which contain the Oristano Gulf from a distance.

Reaching Bosa and mooring in the Bosa Marina beach bay - not inside the Temo river which is another great place and where marinas are also available - after passing by Capo Nieddu, Foghe and Rock Scoglio di Corona Niedda black crown.

After one Night spent in Bosa Marina e Bosa Cittą - we can never promote Bosa enough as it has everythyng you would like as a river, a bay with a great beach, a all year round live town split between the Bosa Citta' along the river and the Bosa Marina side nearer to the beach - we sailed back again under light or no wind.

During our trip back we diverted to view from a short distance the Isola di Maldiventre, which is about 3.5 miles offshore, in the Capo Mannu / Putzu Idu vicinity on the mainland can we say so of another island as Sardinia?, about 80 hectars wide and with a maximum elevation above the sea of 18 meters.
