Dear Logbook, second day of the first trip.
Yesterday the first day of navigation ended well. We arrived at the port and were able to go for a walk with my wife Marta, that great woman who accompanies me on this long journey. Then we were able to have dinner and share family moments with our little sailors, Gadea and Martín. Before getting on board we could collect a great deal of supporting letters for this exciting trip from the post office. What great family and friends we have around!
The night passed calmly, which recharged my energy. After all, the tension caused by the fear of the unknown was released on the deck of the KS. That fear or stress makes this inland sailor feel sympathetic.
Today, it is already dawn, and we will begin to prepare the meals to face this second day of crossing. According to the crew, the second and third day of the crossing are shorter but they can come with little swell.
Before sailing, we spent the morning tying ends in port and taking a cool walk. Here it is beginning to get cooler. It’s the weather in these Viking lands.
Well, we are already on the KS catwalk, ready for a new adventure and a new stage of this trip. Everything seems calm up to now. On board the crew called me to give them the go-ahead, what kind and friendly people they are!
All ready by that time, we set sail and I was given some liquids to face this second day. Meanwhile, I spent my time writing letters and contemplating this voyage calmly.
Today’s short trip comes to an end. We can see the new port in the distance. Another day of crossing without frights. There was no need to fold the sails; the weather and the sea have respected us.
Now it’s the time to go to the cabin and rest or take a walk. You have to save your strength for the crossing tomorrow, the last one this week. Then, we will dock the ship to get it ready for next Monday 23rd, when we will start a new voyage and adventure. Another day has passed, in which we approach the final destination.
