Having refuelled in Hohe Dune we motored out towards the NE, where the wind was coming from…not as per the forecast. However it was light and we went through the traffic separation without problem apart from a freighter overtaking us on the wrong side and performing a decidedly dubious course cutting across our bow soon after. The wind rose and we were able to sail from 1300 enjoying a lovely "sheets eased" sail across to Denmark.
Our destination was Klintholm and our arrival, with a few other boats, was a delight. The tiny guest harbour had a selection of opportunities and we took an alongside berth with the help of a Belgian couple,also HR owners, and were comfortably moored up by 1600.
This delightful small harbour is unattended, payment is made by card in a machine which dispenses a receipt, WiFi codes and shower codes. A beach is adjacent to the west and the cliffs of Mon are a short distance off to the east. We are moored on wooden staging a hundred metres from the open sea and it is now a warm and gentle evening.
The forecast looks good for a nice sail to Sweden tomorrow, hopefully Ystad, which will make our arrival in readiness for the rally in good time and avoid some strong winds in the coming days.
