The first week

A really eventful week lies behind us: the start in Kiel with the many press representatives and supporters of the OCEAN CHANGE present, finally setting sail and the start of the on-board routine. This was followed by a detailed emergency medical briefing by our on-board doctor, Dr Alexander Weise, and finally sailing north in summery weather with the days getting longer and longer. A great atmosphere.

On the island of Læsø, we visit the farm of Sigrid's parents, the youngest crew member accompanying us on the journey north. Her parents have set up a festive table in the garden where a veritable feast of fresh salads and seafood awaits us. Free-range animals everywhere: donkeys, ducks, geese, chickens, little pigs, goats and rabbits - it's like being in Bullerbü. A great evening with great hosts.

Yesterday we travelled from Læsø to Strandby, our last Danish harbour for the time being. Last night we celebrated the Danish Midsummer Festival with a big fire on the beach together with the locals.

Summer has now officially arrived. And today we will be making the leap across the Skagerak to Norway.
