Kjøpmannskjær, Norway – August 17th
Destination 1: The Caribbean…via the European coastline and either the Canary Islands or Cape Verde.
Stop 1: Jomfruland Island, Norway
But, then – we did!
Stop 1: Jomfruland, Norway
There we were, about to leave for a long-term sail trip on an Indian Summer kind of day – actually, the first day of school for the boys! It was all kind of surrealistic.
Our point of departure is in Kjøpmannskjær where ELANE was docked in Norway – a 45 minute drive from our house in Melsomvik.
Despite of our frustrations of not meeting our goals on time, we couldn’t have asked for a better day to leave! No wind, but then again, no worries! We had sun and up to 28°C (being the warmest of the year) = rest & relaxation! A gorgeous, gracious, gentle start for our tired, battered souls. We were full of hope – dreaming of the chance to experience all that the YouTube sailors get to experience .
