Hans, Nikolai and Mads, started their journey from Sonderborg, Denmark towards the Mediterranean in the beginning of June. They have now travelled more than 500 nautical miles and are already rich in experiences.
“We have met this great guy, Johannes. He invited us to Brighton and that is why we are visiting. He is an experienced sailor and has taught us a lot so far"
As their proud sponsor, we have received news from the boys about the first part of their journey.
They sailed from Sonderborg through the Kiel Canal, on the Elbe to Delfzil in Holland and through the canals to Amsterdam where they had quite a surprising morning as a German captain collided with their ship in the port. The rude awakening happened early in the morning. Luckily, their ship only suffered minor damages so the boysf could easily continue their journey.
“We continued to Zeebrugge in Belgium and from there to Calais in France where we were lucky enough to attend a music festival. We stayed in Zeebrugge for a couple of days before we set the course for England across the Channel. It was a bit tough, although the traffic was not nearly as bad as we had expected”, says Nikolaj Bie Rasmussen.
The boys sailed to England for specific reasons – as they have met and made friends with a guy from England during their trip.
“We have met this great guy, Johannes. He invited us to Brighton and that is why we are visiting. He is an experienced sailor and has taught us a lot so far. Now, he wants to show us what a real English pub looks like”, says Hans Kobberø.
How the boys will continue their journey, has not been planned yet. We are looking forward to receiving news from them again.
