LN905 07/09/2016 – We left Gothenburg yesterday in a “Parade of Sails”. Many small boats and spectators were out to see us off. Course was set for Copenhagen…..”The Mermaid” beckons. It was a bit choppy overnight so motoring plus fore and aft sails set which gave us an extra knot or two of speed. The Wind not favourable to set square sails but the temperature has become a balmy 20c today.

The voyage crew are settling in and getting used to life on board.

We’ve heard of a small brewery in Copenhagen called “Lord Nelson”, so the plan is to check it out later during shore leave.
