Z01: Crossing the North Sea, sailtraining (450 Miles)
We will set sail on the first day, from the city center of Rotterdam off to Scheveningen, through the iconic Erasmus bridge. The next day we will cross the English Channel to Lowestoft, a distance of 100 miles with shipping lanes and lots of traffic. An educational crossing where we will sail through the night and where we have to use the radar and AIS, but we will also practice with shiplight recognition. After a nightof rest, we sail further along the English coast up to Whitby. A distance of 155 miles, so again activesailing in a watch system and we have to keep a sharp lookout for shipping, fishing an doil rigs.
Whitby is a very beautiful and charming old fishing port. If the weather cooperates we will have some time left to to recover and enjoy the cozy English atmosphere and sights. The next leg is to Aberdeen, 170 miles, wher we will end this sail training in. A real working harbor full of supply ships for the oil rigs, which makes this a special port. We will end the trip in one of the best pizzeria’s in the world and a pub afterwards.The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
