A winter yacht delivery across the North Sea

It's not an easy route at the best of times. Crossing the North Sea in February is cold, with short days and long nights.

Here is a short video from the trip:


I hope you enjoy it.

Cold??
Luxury!

Great video.

How long did you expect the weather window to last? and, How long did it actually last?

Thank you!

We had a great weather window that was set to last 4 days. This would have been enough, but the yacht needed quite a bit of prep before we could set off...

Learned to sail and swim out of Fraserburgh.
The North Sea is a harsh teacher.
