Starling headed to Hel!
Started our day with breakfast at 8am cooked by Micheal the skippers mate. A delicious omelette with bacon. Had our final boat briefing and safety checks then had time to grab the last final moments of the beautiful city Gdańsk. Ice cream for some, 400 steps in the tower with views for others whilst the rest chilled. Set sail for Hel! What sort of name is that ! However we got there in 4 hours all be it a sail and slight Motor due to winds only begin low but hit 6 knots which was exciting after no wind !
So moored up into Hel managed to tidy up and put the boat to bed very well. Then Michael volunteered to cook. Some of us went for a lovely cold beer sitting in t shirts watching the sun go down, some for ice creams And some for showers. All met back on the boat for 8.30pm to be presented with an amazing risotto. All in all a lovely first day sailing – Helen x
