Last glimpse of Positano
Approaching Marina Piccola
Just a couple of miles from the port, the wind started to increase again and after about 10 minutes, the gusts had increased to about 30 knots (15 m/s). This sudden increase in the wind was totally unexpected. The wind was blowing over the island, so the sea remained almost flat. However, I did not feel comfortable with maneuvering this boat in an unknown port in such a wind, so we decided to continue to the next port on the other side of the island. I guess that the high mountains on Ischia accelerated the wind since the wind speed dropped to about half when arriving to Marina di Forio on the western side of the island.

A wildfire broke out on a nearby mountain in the evening.
