CAptain's Mate of the Month

The CA's amazing APP CAptain's Mate is available exclusively and free to CA members. However, we're keen to share some of its attributes and first-hand knowledge & some 'as live' reports with all of our followers - members and non-members alike. So, we're selecting our 'CAptain's Mate of the Month' for the next few months! This is just an example of the hundreds of new reports submitted every month.


July 2019:

Vulcano (Porto Levante): Only stayed here for a few hours, however, there was no problem in anchoring in coarse sand just north of the harbour wall and swimming ashore to try the famous hot mud baths (€ 2 per person), a bargain if it really cures skin, respiratory and joint problems as it says on the notice! We also took the dinghy round the corner to the harbour, tied up to the town steps and tried the famous "sulphurous" white wine pioneered by Glaswegian "Captain" James Stephenson who owned the Island of Volcano from 1870 until fierce volcanic activity commencing in August 1889 forced him to abandon the project. He is still remembered in Cantine Stevenson on the harbour front.
