Sailing around Rügen

We spent the long first of May weekend sailing around the island of Rügen in the Baltic Sea. Capt'n Lila Crox organized the event and rented a yacht in Lauterbach (fittingly we brought a bottle of "Grünen", otherwise also known as Lauterbacher). This time the three of us brothers took our old man on the trip and turned this into a pure "Männertrip", much to the chagrin of our girlfriends who'd have loved to come again too. I'm afraid we'll have to do another making-up turn soon ;-) Anyway, it turned out to be a great trip. Very chilly, but dry and with good wind (maybe 4 - 5 Beaufort?), giving us top speeds of around 8.5 knots.

Note the bottle of "Grünen".
