22-Jul-2002 -- Coming from St. Petersburg and bound for Lorient (Brittany, France) today we
visited 55N 13E, an additional Danish offshore confluence, about 30 km East of Møn Island, and just South of a
patch of about 20 metres (11 fathoms) depth, called Kriegers Flak
In the North of the confluence there is Sweden, in its South is Germany with
the island of Rügen, with its chalk rocks, under better conditions well
visible from this point as well.
The East Coast of Møn attains an elevation of up to
140 metres, of which the highest are the Kongsbjerg (King's Mountain) and
the Dronningsstolen (Queen's Chair).
Today there are gale force winds due to a low pressure over Southern Sweden.
On its Western side strong NW-ly winds are blowing into the sea between
Denmark and Sweden and the Western Baltic, quite rare in summer in this
However, the clouds are now dissolving and this means,
the worst is over.
