Germany on a Sunday, Cuxhaven

Where am I now? Position 53°52.3’N 08°42.18’E. Cuxhaven guest harbour

So I got up at 4.30 am and was ready to go. It is a Sunday in Germany. No sluicing before 8 am. Sure enough, I got out of the canal at eight. All by myself in the big lock. Then out on the Elbe, shipping highway to Hamburg. A lot of shipping. But I got to Cuxhaven quickly. Bunkered diesel, and found out that I had 70 liter left in the tank. All of yesterdays worries were unnecessary…

It is a challenge to get to sail in tidal water. I have a lot to learn. Here is another monsun in port, and the owner recognized me from the website. Always great to meet Monsun sailors. On the way here I saw several seals swim by. They looked at me from very close to the boat. Other than that, I am a bit tired. I will continue to Delfzijl tomorrow. Cheers.
