Rib cruise to the Danish Isle of Bornholm

Well after a few years of saying "one day we will go" I can now say that we made the cruise

Three ribs took part in the cruise all being Parker Ribs. The two Parker 900 Baltic ribs had about 79 Nm to Nexo whereas my Parker 750RS only 59Nm from Dziwnow. We met in a pre-arranged spot about 10 miles south of Nexo.

The weather was not the best on the way there and our speed was about 20 knots. On the way back the weather improved and we maintained a steady speed of 35 knots all the way.

No problem in getting diesel so I managed to fuel up almost immediately. The two petrol ribs had a long wait as the only way was to get a chap with his pick up to fill up a 150 ltr drum at the local petrol station and make 4 trips to the marina.

I am expecting some photos taken from the other ribs so will post them at a later date
