Trevor, in 2004 three of us took the Parker 900 Baltic back from the UK to Gdynia Poland by sea. The route took us just about round Denmark. we took the short cut. I have just looked at some of the posts and for sure you will find some useful information there.

RIB cruise to the Baltic


It was interesting to read these posts again.

Ah - change of plan - Pam's coming and pointed out that it's due to be raining tomorrow afternoon but sunny on Sunday - so in the interest of domestic harmony it looks like we'll be out on Sunday instead!

Good luck guys!
