Some 15 miles further north

27 September 2008 | Dragr (just south of Copenhagen
Sunny again today. However the rainy weather is said to arrive on Monday, so this will be our last stop before turning back to Falsterbo on Sunday.

The wind was weaker than predicted, so it took ua a few hours to make those first 10 miles. we were quite happy with this, since we could have a close look at Stevns Klint (yesterday's picture) when we slowly moved by it at a little less than half a miles distance.

The wind picked up considerably the last few miles though, and when we took the sails down and entered the Port in Dragr it blew 20-25 knots on the nose. we found a large and stable steel sloop of 40-42 feet to tie up alongside so everything was fine despite the port was much more crowded than in Februari when we last visited it. Since it's Saturday and also in some sense 'Le Grand Final'of this years cruise, we dressed up as nice as we could (not too impressive I assure you) and had dinner at the same restaurant as in Februari. Tuna steaks w sauce hollandaise and fresh potatoes and a really nice South African white wine with the for sailors so suitably name 'False Bay'.

There is nothing more I intend to share regarding the further proceedings of this evening ;-)
