A night on Helgoland

A night on Helgoland
Yesterday we had an amazing day of sailing. We tacked our way to Helgoland, it took us some time but as the weather was beautiful and the sailing mood on board was high, we tacked on and on. We arrived around 18:00 at Helgoland to find the harbour closed due to an explosives exercise.. that kept us out for another hour. We had to moor alongside the Loa, a Danish ship that had competed with us in the Tall Ships Races and behind us where Jens Krogh, Rostoscin and Tomidi, later on Black diamond of Durham came in as well, a true Tall Ships gathering again.

The Loa left Helgoland at 01:30 hours, so we had to move for her and could then get back on the berth and back to sleeping. In the morning we did some shopping and left Helgoland behind us around 11:00 hours. Now we are under engine with a headwind.. hoping and expecting the wind to change quite soon.

The atmosphere on board is really good. Although the south west swell is making a few cheeks loose all the color they had gained yesterday. 111 miles to the outer bouy of Terschelling.
