13-Aug-2006 -- Summer-holiday on our sailing-boat. After a very nice trip along the west coast of Sweden we made our way home to Fehmarn, Germany. On Sunday we sailed from Læsø to Anholt, both of them beautiful islands of Denmark, and had very good weather conditions. Partly cloudy with some 5 beaufort (8-10 m/s = 33 km/h),heading southeast, and some swell of 1-1.5 m hight.

Zikade III made her way with direct course and around 6 knots (=11 km/h). With this conditions we didn't want to use the engine so there was only one attempt to catch the confluence lying on our way. With some minor corrections of the course in a gripping atmosphere we passed the confluence very near from the zero of longitude and zeroed the latitude. What a great fun.
