A Very Big Canal

11 May 2018 | Kiel Canal
The Kiel Canal was easy! At 65 miles long, it could be motored through in a day, but we decided to stop half way. There were only a few allowable options for this, and we were delighted with our choice- a mile up a side canal tied to a pontoon just before some lock gates. This part of Germany had been disputed with Denmark from the 1600’s on, and was finally won from Denmark in 1864. Now however it is incredibly peaceful. Maybe we should have spent the last ten years canal boating?

Back in the main canal, a large ship passed us every half hour or so. The canal was really wide, and there was really no stress.






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!
