Copenhagen – Portsmouth: Day 1

Posted in : Starling

After breakfast, Starling was prepared for her journey, set off towards Rodvig, David our navigator boldly set our course out of Copenhagen, passed amazing engineering feat of the Malmo bridge. Neal and Arabella set about putting the crew through their paces, knots were tied and stays were winched as we sailed in wind of 15knots from the south west, and rain, but we bravely carried on to our destination with gusto and determination with all three sails: yankee 2, staysail and mainsail up at one stage. As we neared out destination, an honorary mention for Matt who prepared an amazing roast lamb dinner single handed for which we were well and truly thankful. We pulled into Rodvig at 18.30hours, tying on fenders and mooring up. After dinner our merry band explored the marina, had a chat and collapsed into bed, snoring merrily into the night.
