Re: RIB Cruise from Poland to Littlehampton

Sadly the weather was not on our side it was blowing a F5 to F7 in the southern Baltic and the North sea.
the time was not wasted as we made 3 great rib trip.

1/. from Szczecin via the inland waterway to Peenemunde Germany to see the V1 & V2 factory which is a museum today.

2/. we circumnavigated the Isle of Wolin and experienced F5 from behind for 18 Nm. Not something we wanted to have for 150-200Nm a day

3/. up the river Odra and down by the other leg where on port side was Germany and on starboard Poland. On the German side we stopped at a very nice marine where we enjoyed some German bratfurst

in between we enjoyed potting around the port of Szczecin and the many waterways around

I had the rib towed to Calais where we launched on saturday and headed for Littlehampton. This time there was no reception party awaiting our arrival.
