In the morning it “diverges” to 8 knots (it’s such a poor 3B), maybe it is still smooth, so we are going almost 5 knots, and the panels are loading economic and navigation banks with 12A electricity.
The weather is fine all day, but still cold. We’re going to the Nexo. We arrive after 8 pm. so everything is already closed. The harbor office does not work, and you pay for the marina in the shop open from 9 am to 5:30 pm. In the evening we go for a walk around the town.


A black cat is walking with us, it enters the yacht and looks at it from the outside and then looks at different angles.
