    Back to the Willem Barentsz boat. The little shipboat has the same colours as the big one. Here she is just launched and baptized by a royal princess. Gerald de Weert claims her name( of the ship) was 'De witte Swaan', or White Swan. It is a happy coincidence he discovered this fact just before she was launched.

    The little shipboat is painted in the big ship colours.
    When the ship was launched Gerald de Weert disclosed that in old files the original name of the expedition ship was dicovered. It is a happy coincidence that he found this fact just before she was launched

    Bluff bowed, sharp bowed, single hulled, multi hulled... whatever.

    I don’t live near enough water to enjoy these type sights regularly. It’s all a treat, to me.

    Peace,

    Henning, great to see a sharpie on the Waddenzee. I often thought they could be very good boats there and I think some of our local craft could be very well built in plywood instead of steel.

    Indeed it's a very good boat for the wadden sea. If it's ok for you I'll post some more pictures.

    Bordelumsiel. My homeport is located between Nordstrandischmoor and Hamburgerhallig. The Seglerverein Bordelumsiel is a very smal sailingclub. There a 10 boats in the club.

    When I leave Bordelumsiel and sail about 2 or 3 miles to southwest, I reach the small harbour of the "Hallig Nordstrandischmoor", a lovely place to be.
    Just right to follow the final of the Soccer Championship 2014 at the radio. Our goal was to sail to the island "Pellworm" to watch the match in TV, but the wind dies. The next day there was so much wind that we decided to stay one more night at Nordstrandischmoor.

    It looks that your cruising grounds are more exposed to the North Sea then where I usually sail. I think crossing the Elbe entrance is a bit intimidating for instance. Btw I like your pictures.

    If you stay behind the sands and the outer islands, everything is fine. You just have to avoid situations where the wind is against the tide. In such moments I lift the daggerboard a little bit and sail in shallow waters where the waves and the current are not so strong.

    Ok. Now it´s time to leave Nordstrandischmoor. The wind has dropped to force 5 and we want to visit the beautiful Hallig Hooge. With the rest of the Tide Fjordsang sails out of the harbour into the Rummelloch, a Passage north of Pellworm. At low tide the anchor is dropped and we have to wait for a couple of hours. Time for a breakfest surrounded by seals laying on the sands.

    Thats also our strategy, to go to shallow water out of waves and currents. And do you ever 'walk the boat' when the water is to thin to sail or motor? I know Drascombe sailors do this sometimes. I have not yet seen a Norfolk Sharpie in the flesh. I expect the chine helps to sail in shallow water as well.

    The chine really helps! It works like a very long keel. Walking the boat is a option I use not very often. Most of the time I just drop the anchor and enjoy the scenery.

    Ok, we have enough water to continue our trip to Hooge. At daytime there a some tourists at Hooge, but when the ferry leaves the Hallig, silence comes back. There are many good berths in the harbour for flatbottomed boats. Many birds like oystercatchers live in the harbour, too.

    On a calm summerday it ist time to sail to the Island Föhr, which is called "The North Frisian Caribian". At first, we have to use the outboard, but later we can use the sail and the currents. The next day is sunny and calm again, so we visit the sandbar "Preester" in the east of Föhr.
