Baltic wild swimming
Posted in : Starling
Today we stayed in port at Klintholm, as the sea was very lively in the morning and the winds uncooperative in their direction. We took the opportunity to practise our navigation skills. We planned out three days of continuous cruising to take us from Klintholm, Denmark to Vlieland, Holland with a brief stop in Germany at the entrance to the Kiel Canal. Three countries in three days.
In the afternoon we took shore leave and five crew went off to Mons Klint for a beautiful walk along the white cliffs and through dappled woods.
Three crew took themselves for a swim in the Baltic in an attempt to beguile Neptune into providing fair winds for the long haul ahead.
