Decided to sail to The Netherlands this summer

Yes, I am going to sail to The Netherlands this summer. The original plan has to be adjusted to better fit the circumstances around locked down Denmark. But it is decided to go for it.

It will be a bit of a challenge to go, and still stick to the most important government recommendations, stay clear of as many people as possible. In Germany some of the ports and harbours are open for transit boating. In The Netherlands ports and harbours are open to national boaters. The facilities are still closed for a while more, but I do not need those. Everything I need is aboard Isabell. Stow as much food and water, and fuel as possible, and GO!

Now I have a few weeks left to prepare. Charts are bought. Food lists, shopping lists and spare parts lists to go over. Carry everything on board. Make arrangements for things at home, and then wait for the right weather to help me get down there. I will keep you posted.
