¤ Rally to Neuwerk leads from Lauwersoog Monday 8th of July
Hereby the masterplanning and tentative itinerary of our Rally to Neuwerk with the most important details for this moment. Our friends from Cuxhaven meanwhile did their preparation and have made a masterpiece of it, thank you so much Klaus and Elgin!
When weather is fine we are leaving the outside (salty) harbour Lauwersoog at Monday 8th of July 8.30 a.m., see their schedule for all details. Nature’s will give us ONE high water at daylight in the beginning and one week later high water is very early in the morning. So there will be a few days with early rising, having her own silent beauty sailing while nature is awakening! We’ve understood that Klaus have made enquiries for the harbours: we should find moorings for 8 or 10 yachts everywhere. Diesel can be a problem, so it will be wise top up at Norderney.
Klaus and Elgin have some nice ideas how to spend the time ashore on the islands and at Carolinensiel to surpise us all.

Especially for this Summermeeting and Rally and with the helping hand of Wies Fermie we’ve asked the young artist Vivian Hebing to make a very practical and recognizable musthave for the members to remind! And so she did: an amazing surprise we can assure you all.
