Since the wind couldn’t take us all the way to Kiel we just made a short jump today from our lovely mooring site in Grossenbrode to the ”slightly” more popular harbour Heiligenhafen…

Great winds and a ton of tacking through the quite narrow Fehmarnsund passage. At one moment we went so close 5-10cm to one of the buoys due to the current and loss of wind so it almost hooked up with our windvane ”Styrbjörn”. That would have been quite a catastrophe and an extremely expensive encounter. ?

Of course we had to celebrate reaching the harbour safe with a proper German beer and a wienerschnitzel.

Tomorrow we head for Kiel, we expect the trip to take about 9-10 hours if the winds are in our favour.

I’ll believe that when I see it…
