On Monday we explored the west side of Schleifjord.Light wind from the south, 0-3 Beaufort. Dropped to 0 as the air warmed up and became oppressive. As we arrived at the bascule bridge at Landaunis it was just opening up. There was a river cruise boat with tourists. We wanted to stay away from the propellers and dropped the rig to row under the bridge. After the bridge, the wind slowly died away. We tried to keep sailing but just before Missunde it started to rain. Klarie rowed to the Store Bredning, where the Schlei widened and there was a little wind. We sailed for a bit in the direction of Schleswig. It was quite a big stretch of water and it was a little misty so we could not look very far. We turned around. Soon we were sailing at less than 1 knot with 10 miles to go. So I dropped the sail and started rowing back.

After Missunde we hoisted the sail but made only 1.5 knots. After half a mile we lowered the rig again and rowed all 3 miles to the bridge at Landaunis. Eventually I rowed for eight miles. We returned at the harbour minutes before the kitchen of the Schlei-Zeit restaurant closed. Klarie quickly ordered two meals and beer while I tidied up Hatseflats. A nice reward for all the hard rowing.

Total distance 20nm.
