Klintholm Havn

After a month in Swedish waters we left this morning. The wind was still westerly, but a SW course took us to Klintholm on the Danish island of Møn. The harbour is much busier than it was when we last came but eventually we squeezed into a corner in the inner harbour. With D, Dave and Julie as crew there are plenty of hands to put out fenders and tie up mooring lines which is a good thing.

I actually spent very little time sailing the boat today; more important was mending the gas stove which disintegrated in a pile of rust while cooking breakfast.  It probably needs replacement but it is easier to mend it than manage without for maybe another month till we get back.

We still have a long way to go home but feel that with the Danish flag in the rigging we are beginning to make progress.
