The crew from Cowes to Germany

The longer sail from Cowes straight to the Kiel Canal was quite different from our other European daysails as we sailed day and night, had our watch system going etc. It was also very different from the “usual” long distance trips in that we were always relatively close to shore and had to deal with a lot more navigational hazards, such as oil platforms, wind farms, traffic separation schemes, tidal currents and lots of traffic. Going through the Canal for a day added yet another dimension to this interesting journey.
