Photographer's Note

Sailing along the Danish-German border regions of the Baltic Sea the sailor faces a difficult choice - should he head for the cosy little ports on the Danish side or head for safe harbors on the German side? It is the wind that makes the decision, a strong west wind for example means a crossing to Flensburg of some five hours for a mid-sized vessel. The captain of the sailing vessel in the distance has decided to sail to Soenderborg away from Flensburg's inner fjord. He passes on the German side Holnis narrows (in the background), leading into Flensburg's outer fjord. Sailing this very narrow passage the sailor is advised strongly to keep to the line of buoys not to run the risk of the shallows. I think it was a wise decision, looking at the sky, one would clearly see that stormy weather was approaching.
Flensburg fjord is one of the most beautiful sailing areas in Northern Europe. It is not only a fantastic area for yachtsmen, there are also many places with good cod and sea trout fishing like my place, it is Cathrinesminde brick museum near the village of Broager.
