First news from the route. Antica is moored at the entrance to Kiel Canal.
After crossing the canal she will sail on the North Sea to Amsterdam in the
Netherlands, where the first change of the crew is expected. The Baltic Sea
did not want to let our sailors go. When Antica got at the level of
Szczecin wind changed so unfavourably  that they were forced  to change
they course to NNE which led them far to the open sea. To get back near 
the coast they had to beat to windward for four days, getting quite a nice
spanking.....
Some minor failures of equipment appeared (fortunately not dangerous) as
well as fairly big waves. Captain said: "it was damn hard, but our lives
were not endangered". Despite the difficulties, the young charter crew did
well.
