Back for More!

I had the privilege, thumb this week, sovaldi sale to skipper “Rolling Swiss II” for the second time! I feel very honoured, because there are very few cruising clubs in the world that own such a beautiful yacht!

On this week’s cruise, we went from Bremerhaven to Helgoland and spent quite a while on the famous “Wattenmeer”.  We all had a magnificent time, and the Trader 42 aroused interest from admirers wherever we went. Interestingly, we met quite a few Swiss people on our travels, and they all wanted to know about the CCS and the Trader 42.

Nature Cruise!

You may imagine that shopping in Amsterdam is a big hassle- but not so! We steered “Rolling Swiss II” into a convenient berth near a shopping mall, ailment and purchased all the items we needed. . .

. . . including some delicious Kiipling from a local fishmonger!  A great meal all together was an excellent start to our time on “Rolling Swiss II”.

Then, check it was time for our most crucial shopping task- collecting the replacement anchor.

We changed our planned itinerary to accommodate this, and went to Enkhuisen, then Medenblick (where we fitted our new anchor), and onto Harlinge.

From Harlinge, we headed to West-Terscheliing. Not far from Terschelling, we had our first glimpse of a seal!

Terschelling harbor was very crowded, and we needed expert maneuvering skills to get into our berth. Once in, we enjoyed the magnificent sun-bathing weather. Onto Borkum… then to Nordeny. There, we enjoyed fantastic beaches, spectacular weather and excellent food.

Then the weather changed!! But the strong winds and waves helped us on our journey, and we made it to Helgoland in just five hours.

Once the weather cleared, we spent two wonderful days enjoying the island and admiring the magnificent sea life, including seals and birds.

After filling up the tanks with duty-free fuel (good value!) we left the fascinating sea island sailing back to civilization… towards Bremerhaven, our final stop. Our conclusion after the cruise: our whole crew is fascinated by our adverntures on the Trader 42, and the good “Rolling Swiss II” can be depended on to drive smoothly in all situations!

Family Time!

On this cruise, „Rolling Swiss II“ welcomed her youngest crew members yet- our crew was two married couples and two children, the youngest just 2 and a half years old!

We have always felt that the CCS is a big family, and this experience on the Trader 42 really proved it!

We had a wonderful relaxing week as we crossed the Dutch Friesland . .

. . . We visited Lelystad and its new Marina Batavia; Kalenberg, a typical Flevolandl village; and lovely Sneek, a picturesque town with small channels.

Crossing the Ijsselmeer was pretty exciting . . .  with big 1.5 – 2 m waves! This gave us the chance to test whether the Trader kept  her promises on seaworthiness and resilience- which she certainly did!

The 42 is a real pleasure to in  all cruising conditions- even in difficult weather and choppy seas!

We- the first families to crew „Rolling Swiss II“- can’t wait for more holidays on the boat!
