Ready to go, and enjoying the trip.
Leaving the lock from Lauersoog around 10.00 am out to the Northern sea we got greeted by seals popping up their head in the greeninsh water. Until midnight we sailed with the gennakker at around 4-6 knots having a very enjoyable trip. The kids where mostly seeing movies, when they weren´t snacking or eating meals with us in the cockpit. During the night the wind died completely, but it came back in the early morning at a beam reach which gave us a good push against the strong current against us.
We got through the Kiel canal lock, and with cake, songs and presents celebrating Philippes 39th birthday – yeah! We spend the night anchoring on the way, and continued the next day, arriving in Laboe on the outside of the lock around 16.00 pm. Here we stocked up on groceries and went for a walk (needed after three days on the boat) and the kids were fishing for juvenile horn- and flat- fish until ten o´clock in the evening 😉
Next day, we sailed with good winds to Langeland, entering Denmark with Mawi again after a bit more than a year and on Sankt Hans evening (we did not see a fire anywhere though!). And after a peaceful night at anchor, we entered Nyborg havn. We are in Denmark, but the journey will continue a bit longer 😉
