Starling find perfect conditions on Baltic Coast

Posted in : Starling

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. We prepared for driving rain and headwinds only to be rewarded with hot sun and a gentle breeze, which made for perfect training conditions on our first sail along Germany’s Baltic coast. Our day in Germany began obviously with a full English breakfast before Graham expertly drove us off the dock. Neal the mate then admitted he had forgotten the hose pipe so he drove us straight back on! What followed was a lovely warm sunny day of sailing and training finished of with a wonderful time rustic cod stew made by Michelle and Rich. There’s an undefinable magic about the Baltic and it is very special to be back after 5 years. Tomorrow the forecast says wind and rain so we are preparing the sun cream and shades! Many more happy days to come on the 2019 Baltic Explorer.
