U-995

13 May 2018 | Laboe
Exiting the Canal was another anti-climax. We had to wait about an hour for two cargo ships to be locked in, then we entered the lock with just six other yachts. We tied up, and ten minutes later the gates opened and we had arrived- the Baltic! We headed for the marina at Laboe, a holiday town a few miles from Kiel.

We stayed two nights, and had the first excursion of the year on our bikes, recovered from below our double bunk. They will probably remain on deck for the rest of the summer. We had a pleasant cycle along the coast, and had a look round the German submarine U-995. It was enormous! At the end of the war it had been surrendered to Norway, who later presented it back to Germany for renovation and display as a museum. It was hard to imagine what life under the sea must have been like for the crew.


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.
