Velvet Lady is now in Ijmuiden

This is our route for Summer 2012.  We have just completed the first leg (purple line) from Plymouth to Ijmuiden.  We had an interesting thrash, as we beat to windward in a Force 6 with lots of ships and not much visibility!

Lucky for us, once we arrived in Holland, the sun came out and Richard and I have spent the past few days living in shorts and t shirts, doing jobs and even managing a day off in Amsterdam.  We are ready now for the next two milebuilding  legs, yellow to Oslo and then blue to Copenhagen.  We take a bit of a breather in Copenhagen, and instead on focusing on mileage, we will spent July cruising amongst the islands in the Danish Archipelago.(Green area)  Steeped in history there are many stunning castles and viking museums to visit as well as pretty anchorages to relax in.  Apologies for the brief blog, the internet connection is at best dodgy! and we are hoping it will be better in Oslo.
The weather in Denmark looks to be great in the coming weeks and we are looking forward to our summer – why not join us for some fantastic sailing in this Viking land!
