On Saturday 4th August we left our lovely town Hamburg. We invited our family and friends to a small breakfast on the landing stage and celebrated our farewell until we untied our lines at 11:38.
Our first way point was Glückstadt. Unfortunately, we couldn't sail because we had 5 knots against us. After our first nautical miles we realized a problem with our fresh water pump. Due to the vibration of our engines a line must have loosened itself and we faced a lot of water in our bilge... Many buckets of water later the bilge was dry again and our water tank nearly empty ;(
We needed almost 5 hours to the harbour of Glückstadt. A few miles before the harbour our autopilot broke down. We engineered by hand into the harbour but couldn't find the solution for the problem. Bad luck number 2 on the first day!
Nevertheless, we enjoyed our time in Glückstadt until Monday 6th August.
Do you see Charly's toothbrush ;o)?
Enjoying the sun...
