Our first trip without skipper. We started our trip in Emden with destination Borsfleth (about one hour with the car north of Hamburg). We left the main Emden lock without any problems. Both new engines worked fine, the wind from the correct side meant the command “engines off”. We sailed with good speed along the Ems to the island Borkum. The sun was shining and we knew that’s our life. The last parking space in Borkum harbour was our place plus 1,5 metres, but we managed it like an expert.
We continued within the next week to Borsfleth with a lot of nice adventures.
