Watching the local sword fishermen on their peculiar boats which have 15-m lattice steel masts with a lookout/skipper atop (who operates the steering and the engine controls from aloft) and a harpooner on the front end of a bowsprit, much longer than the actual boat, and buying fresh sword fish for a very pricey € 28.- per kg and nevertheless enjoying its distinctive flavour.

Applauding the amateur performances at the traditional sword fishermen festival (“Sagra del Pescespada”) on an impromptu stage right next to our ship, below the Ruffo Castle, in this very beautiful fishing harbour at Marina di Scilla, the traditional site of the six-headed sea monster Scylla.
