Another day trying to figure out how the windvane should be configured and in the middle of everything we had to practice Man Over Board or more precise Fender Over Board.
Conclusion it’s not as easy as it looks especially not with just sails and no engine which clearly can be seen on the map from the event.

Since we weren’t able to reach the planned destination today either we decided to visit Klintholm that is a small guest harbur located in the southeast of Denmark. The harbor is quite expensive for my personal taste but how could I put a price tag on a good night sleep in a protected harbor.

Tomorrow we aim for Gedser that is about 35 nautical miles away which is about 9 to 10 hours if the wind doesn’t change till then.
