On Thursday we left Saeby behind and sailed south towards the island of Anholt in the middle of Kattegat. At the beginning the wind was dead on the nose and we motored. After the turn towards Anholt on southern side
Helsingør and the Kronborg castle 1.7. – 3.7.
On Sunday morning we continued from Anholt island towards Helsingør. While preparing Suwena for a sea a SAR vessel left the harbour with blue lights flashing. Immediately afterwards we heard on VHF a pan pan call for all ships. There
The Island of Ven in the Middle of the Sound 4.7.
Finally the temperature was 25 degrees already in the morning. While sipping morning coffee in a cockpit we discussed that should we go to the island of Ven or directly to Copenhagen. The sun was shining nicely and we went
Copenhagen 5.7. – 9.7.
It is just 13 nautical miles from Ven to Copenhagen. En route the country and the scenery changed. Small idyllic island changed into big metropolis and the red-white courtesy flag was raised to the right spreader again. We wanted to
Falsterbo and Gislövsläge 9.7 – 10.7.
We left Copenhagen on Monday morning with the plan to cross the Sound and sail towards the south coast of Sweden and the harbour of Gislövsläge there. Last time when we travelled by train from Copenhagen to Malmö, we travelled
Bornholm Island, the Pride of Denmark 11.7. – 17.7.

Kołobrzeg, the Sunshine Coast of Poland 17.7. – 18.7.
It was great to cast off the lines in Bornholm and turn Suwena’s bow again towards a new country, Poland. Our journey in Denmark lasted five days longer than planned due to high winds and we were eager to continue
Świnoujście, Poland 19.7. – 22.7.
The trip from Kołobrzeg to Świnoujście is 50 nautical miles. Weather forecast predicted force 3 to 4 from south-west which means an offshore wind. Also the swell from the blow on previous day was getting smaller. The wind force was
Seedorf, Rügen 22.7. – 24.7.
The wind was again not cooperating and the blow was dead on the nose. That meant we had to use the iron genny to travel from Poland to the island of Rügen in Germany. Originally our aim was to stop
Stralsund, Rügen 25.7. – 27.7.
This year’s summer has been rather cold and the first real heat wave arrived on the last week of July. We enjoyed the sun and cozy Seedorf but the clock was ticking and it was time to move on. Getting
