Germany to Denmark

Nico Prien ticks off another item on his bucket list as he sails from Germany to Denmark

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to sail from one country to another? Well, Nico Prien (Starboard / NeilPryde) didn't just think about as he recently undertook the mission, along with Gunnar Asmussen (Starboard / Severne Sails), to sail from Germany to Denmark, whilst documenting all of it and lets just say it wasn't all plain sailing...

Nico Prien: "Baltic Sea Crossing. Another tick on my bucket list.

Since so many years, whenever I would go sailing in my home spot, I couldn’t help, but imagine to keep sailing until you arrive at the other side. You can’t see it, but a look on the map shows that Denmark is not too far.

The wind forecast aligned (well, sort of) and a couple of phone calls & a day later we found ourselves in Kiel to launch over to Denmark.

We sailed a total of 110km, which in itself is not a lot but Gunnar Asmussen and I faced a couple of challenges, which made the trip an unforgettable memory. Sometimes childhood dreams do come true – this was one of them.
