Having left Dover on Sunday evening and sailed 565 nautical miles, we arrived in Skagen at 0730 this morning in fine clear weather. This Danish port is heavily reliant on fishing, particularly for herring, which provided 3.4 Billion Danish Kroner to the economy in 2013. This is just as well, because harbour improvements to allow berthing of larger cruise ships cost DKK 226 million.
Other notable items in Skagen’s history are the Skagen Painters, a group of 19th century Impressionists who were drawn to the town’s scenery and social community.
We sail this evening for Gdansk, arriving the day after tomorrow after a passage of 435 nautical miles.
