Things does not always go as you want when you travel by boat as I said yesterday.
Today we made the hard desicion to skip Sweden and do Holland for a few weeks. The propshaft is okay but we don`t relly trust it to go that far and we realized that we will have to less time when we finally arrive. It will be more work than vacation.
At the moment we are in Lauwerskoog and the weather is beautiful and we started at 05,00 from Vlieland this morning with destination Helgoland. We changed our mind a long the way though.
To be a great sailor does not mean that you should just know how to trim your sails or how to tie up nicely to a spot somewhere. It also includes making decisions for you and your crew what is best in the situation you are in. This is what we did, we made the decision to have a great vaction with o stress and explore new places around Holland.
I am a little sad that I won`t meet my parents and parents- in- law but I will fly to Sweden in a few months to say hi and stay for a few days. and all the nice food I was going to buy and all the candy i was supposed to eat, that I will miss for sure.
But it is the first day of my first vacation here in Holland and it feels great. Below some pics from today.
