Ship's crew assembled

So the adventure begins.  On Wednesday 6th August 2014 we all arrived in Esbjerg. The main group, David & Ann, Maria & Richard, Roz & Tony, Robyn & Andy, Godfried and Christine arrived from Stansted after a stupidly early 3.30am start.  Mandy flew in from Heathrow via Aberdeen (eh?),  Nick & Raynee were already here having driven from Kent in their camper van and Harvey & Mary, Dave & Marion arrived by train from Copenhagen (really uber cool & hip).

The wine consignment arrived by truck as we did, and we met the crew:  skipper Martin, first mate Frianko, cook Jessica and crew Eddie, Jana, Niki.  Cabins allocated , bags unpacked, rooms double checked, toilets tested and showers savoured.  Wonderful welcome on board and a lovely convivial evening as the sun set over the workaday port.  Tomorrow after taking provisions we'll head off north.  The winds are south/southwesterly which will take us nicely north towards Norway.
