Great photos Andre but in the first set of pictures I'm a bit worried about picture 5: DR0WN!

Peder was giving each waypoint a special name and just can't think why he came up with DROWN

The Island of Helgoland

This is a most unusual island. Living off the turists mainly from Germany and Denmark who flock here for the Duty Free goods. Diesel is just over a Euro per litre

Photo 1, working lunch
Photo 2, taking full advantage of the duty free fuel
Photo 3, our second lunch
Photo 4 as above

we decided to leave the next day at 5 AM and forgot to tell the hotel manager and pay the bill that evening. By the time we go back he had long gone. He was not quite happy with a 5AM wake up call asking if he could come cos we wanted to pay the bill.

Photo 5, refuelling at Den Helder, Holland

Next stop Felixstowe we were on the go for about 14 hours that day
The rib and the Cummins QSD 4.2 (350HP) performed very well. The vessel viewer is a fantastic piece of kit and the fuel log is spot on. It is very accurate so you know exactly how much fuel you are using at any specific time. It makes you even reduce the speed by a few knots to increase the range

Southampton Waters

Photo 2,3 & 4 Southampton Dry Stack, home for Seahawk V

A few years ago I was keen to do the same trip in a Parker 630 diesel rib. Having now done it in a 9 mtr I am pleased I towed the 630 (Seahawk III) to the UK

Great pics and a great trip. Yes Heliogoland is an unusual island - it was a British Colony back in the 1800s and the population wanted it to remain so!!!
