Outside the Freisen Islands

09 May 2018 | Cuxhaven
It is possible to sail inside the islands, but four metre tides and shifting sandbanks makes this a challenge, even with a good chart plotter. So we opted for another overnight passage, mainly motoring in light winds on the nose. The bill to fill up the tanks when we arrived in Cuxhaven was €250- ouch!

A never ending stream of big ships trundled north on our port side, which was fine until they broke away to head in front and behind us into the Jade. Barrie was asleep below and I have never been so glad of AIS! The screenshot shows the problem...

Cuxhaven is Germany's biggest seaside resort, but isn't very exciting. However, the marina was excellent and good value, so we stayed two nights, and spent a day finishing off some of the minor jobs we hadn't got around to doing over the winter.
Vessel Name: Yarona
Vessel Make/Model: Hallberg Rassy, HR43
Hailing Port: Lancaster, UK
Crew: Barrie and Kath Stott
About:
We came late to sailing in 2001, first on flotilla holidays then on various courses and "mile builders". By 2008 we had a plan, blew caution to the wind, downsized our home and sold our business. We bought Yarona and lived on board for six months each year, sailing in Scotland and then the Med. [...]
Extra: Yarona was launched in 2003. She had already done a circumnavigation when we bought her. We believe her to be the perfect yacht for a live-aboard couple. She is safe at sea and comfortable at anchor. She is our first boat, and probably our last!

The Azores was just a delight! We loved our time there.
