4 June 202217° 13 miles motoring Departure: 10.00 Arrival: 12.00 (ish) Distance: 13 miles Weather: Start of the day somewhat cloudy, no wind and around 11.00 the sun broke through. 20 degrees Details: we met the Welvaeren (Bavaria 37) and her crew. Marcel and Astrid.
After installing the ingenious anchor rinser with the surface water high-pressure washer, we raise the anchor and head towards Marstal. The Welvaeren is in Laboe and has, not entirely coincidentally ;-), plotted the same destination.The trip will be entirely by engine, as there is not much wind. It picks up later in the afternoon. So we dock in time and get a great spot along the quay. We do a tour of the village and score tie-wraps (Every ship has tie-wraps and…duck tape as its ‘basic ingredient’). We do a tapas lunch in the street and then go back on board to watch the armada of sailboats coming in on the aft deck in the sunshine. The Welvaeren comes in and moors in front of us. We have hilariously special German neighbours, with a beautiful boat. We discover that it is customary to provide your neighbours with beer when you come alongside….we welcome this tradition 😉 After drinks on the aft deck, we walk to ’the Gammle Vingaard’, the restaurant where we continue the fun while enjoying good food.
