23.–30.07.2011 Peak season in the famous Kattegat


All crew members dropped in with best motivation for the upcoming cruise at Aalborg near the Limfjord, the 4th biggest city of Denmark. During the nice and convivial dinner the whole crew with skipper Ernst, vice skipper Bertrand, Astrid, Celine, Anne-Karina and Kari we prepared our minds for our journey.

On Saturday the taking over of Rolling Swiss II went on as usual, the charges were
assigned as already agreed. Therefore Celine, Anne-Karina and Kari went out for
shopping, to buy ahead the food for the coming days.

Bertrand, our vice skipper, together with Ernst initiated us in the mysteries of the safety
rules on board, a good exercise to get the first impressions of RSII. This yacht has a really impressive layout with excellent equipment and large space for the six crew members. Experiencing my first cruise it was simply stupendous for me.

Our first leg going west on the Limfjord led us to Logstor. There was quite a heavy traffic on the narrow waterway. Lot of foreign and custom boats were on the way in both rections. Arriving at the harbor of Logstor Ernest impressively proofed how little space it’s needed to completely turn around RS II.

On Sunday, the second day of our cruise we were anchoring near the island of Livö. We intended to watch the seals colony living there. From far we saw the animals lying on a swath of land. Going back to the east we passed the lifting bridge of Aegersund and docked in the harbor of Nibe around six o’clock in the evening.

On the following day we anchored on the east end of the Limfjord. Already during the night we left again heading in direction of the Isle of Anholt where we arrived at 09:00 a.m. encountering a crowded harbor.

Our journey then led us  back to the mainland, to Grenaa and Ebeltoft until we arrived on Friday at Aarhus as initially planned.

We experience a interesting and varied week with sunny days and little wind allowing a very enjoyable tour.
