After a bumpy ride and increasing headwinds we are back at Brighton Marina.
Back on our old spit, next to the beautiful pub. The best place to wait for a more favorable wind.
What a coincidence? Well, sometimes you’ve to help a bit out on that.
I called up at the marina about 50min before our arrival to check with them if they could still lock us in. Due to the well known a lack of depth we keep on checking with the habour authority, and also to make sure they will keep this certain space free for us. The operater said he had to check and I could here him saying like, ‘that’s this Hamburg express, they’re coming back and ask for the inner habour.’ I also could here people joking in the background. The answer was just easy. Fine with them. But. The lock guard will already be off, so they’d like to ask us to give about 5min notice and aswell for patience until the operater made his way from the office to the lock to let us inWow, that’s customer orientated. We really made some friends in the last three days in this marina.
Premier marina. The name is for a reason.
