ZC1: Crossing the North Sea, sailtraining 2021 (450 Miles)
We will set sail from the city center of Rotterdam off to Scheveningen. A laid-back start of the trip, with a cup of coffee we can enjoy sailing under 4 bridges including the iconic Erasmus Bridge. It is impressive to see Rotterdam from the water with all the busy shipping traffic. The ‘New Waterway’ is divided into mariphone block channels to guide shipping, an interesting aspect of this sail-training. Depending on the current, it is about three hours sailing to the North Sea, which gives us plenty of time to go through everything on deck.
In the evening we will make a route plan depending on the weather reports, a challenging puzzle. We will also study the weather charts. Our first plan will be to sail over to Whitby (U.K.), but Whitby is not an all weather access port and entering 24 hours a day is also not possible because of a sand bar. The route itself is crowded with shipping traffic routes, fishing vessels wind farms and oil rigs. An educational crossing where we will sail through the night in a watch system. An excellent exercise for studying the almanac and currents, practice with light recognition, radar & AIS, making bearings to prevent collisions and night sailing.
Whitby is a very beautiful and charming old fishing port. If the weather cooperates we will have some time left to recover and enjoy the cozy English atmosphere and sights.
After a night of rest, we sail further along the English coast up to Scotland. The wind determines the destination, but if it works out, we can make a stopover in, for example, Eyemouth or the charming Stonehaven. Again, active sailing in a watch system and we will have to keep a sharp lookout for shipping, fishing and wind farms.
This sail-training ends in Peterhead. A working harbour full of supply vessels for the oil rigs. We will end the trip in a pub, for a meal and a beer.
In short, an instructive sail training because of the busy shipping routes, strong currents and tidal puzzles, but above all a beautiful sailing voyage along a beautiful coast with nice harbours.
The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
