Norderney

There were light winds today so we mostly motored from Borkum to the island of Norderney. The heavy swell from the north seems to have settled after a few days of quieter weather. We saw several porpoises - or maybe they were dolphins; they look very similar in the water except that dolphins are larger, which doesn't help much if you don't see them together. We had a torrential rain shower which blotted out visibility just as we were coming into Norderney harbour but otherwise all was fairly straightforward.

Norderney is a long established and sophisticated resort. There are plenty of serious yachts here including a collection of very thirsty looking racing powerboats. We have now become quite used to being the only British yachts in the harbour.
