Skagen

Saga Sapphire blog - Captains' blogs

29th September, 2019

The crossing from Dover was windy, force 8, but the wind and sea was from behind so it was a comfortable passage. We arrived into Skagen in overcast, drizzly and windy conditions. The forecast was for this to continue for the day, but the weather improved with scattered cloud and a mostly sunny day.

Skagen is a painter’s paradise with its rugged landscape. It is situated at the tip of Jutland where the Skagerrak and Kattegat join. The Skagen highlights trip went to the point where the North Sea and the Baltic Sea merge, and some people where even brave enough to go paddling!

The “Sand Worm” takes you out to the tip over the last stretch of beach!

There were 2 other excursions, one a walking tour and one to the local museum.

We left Skagen at 1700 for Fredericia in much calmer conditions those we arrived in.
