Starling arrives in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Stralsund, Germany
Posted in : Starling
We set off this morning from our Rostock berth with fueling and breakfast to be done after. Waving cheerio to our newly found catamaran friend.
Our downwind route gave everyone the chance to helm and getting in plenty gybes along the way. At times we had a gust peaking around 30knots of wind which brought that extra bit of speed – hitting 10 knots briefly. We had the big spinnaker out the locker and practiced our pole drills, although sadly the weather turned a little too exciting for a hoist today. Plenty more days ahead for spinny fun. We landed at picturesque Stralsund in Germany after a long, shallow, entry channel. Excellent navigation by Erika and curry dinner by the Rich/Nick combo. After berthing opposite a massive white Tall Ship we had a short explore around the pretty town. A full day’s sightseeing awaits tomorrow.
