At low hanging clouds and after a bit of hick-up with the mooring we arrived at our berth. Another arrival in drizzle and misty weather like the ones before in Crosshaven, Dublin and Belfast. In any case we were relieved, that we do not need to stay out at a mooring buoy and had to get the dinghy unpacked.

It is peak season and besides having plenty of mooring grounds, full service marinas still have some potential for further developments in this part of the world. Nevertheless  this cruising area seems to offer a lot.

The evening took us into the closest pub, less than 50m away. What a welcome! STS Kapitan Borchardt (built in 1918 carrying an interesting history) and its Shanty Chor also moored in the marina. They performed a public concert dedicated to Celtic music in their polish home language.

Two famous songs got recorded: “Caledonia“ and “Whiskey in the J(B)ar“. While the latter one originates more from Ireland, Caledonia – Latin name for Scotland –  speaks for itself.

Great entertainment from a vibrant and hilarious Polish band.

There is one more public house in this town!

Fair winds…
