Sailing in Montenegro

Have been in Montenegro with my friend for sailing near Kotor. Very nice area! We were sleeping on the ship and sailing through the whole area for a couple of days. Phenomenal! We will come back next year with more people and charter a bigger boat and plan to go out to Adria.

The combination of sport (sailing) and sun is wonderful. I really like it. Would not be able to just lay around on the beach the whole day anymore. I need some actions nowadays. Look at this video with Bernhard and Predrag in action.

Sailing with my Helbling 485

Meanwhiles I am better in sailing. Last year I turned my dinghy over at least 7 times. Sometimes it was quite hard to turn it back again.

But after a lot of training in the new year, I am quite happy with my expertise. I am going with the boat always alone and since a couple of weeks I am able to use he trapeze.

Yesterday we tried out the catamaran of my friend he had bought this spring. It was great fun. I also have a Europe winner now gotten for free. We had to repair it, but now it is wonderful to sail.

In fact we have tree boats to use now, my Helbling 485 from the foto, the small Europe Winner an the catamaran.

Today another friend joined us on the catamaran. I used my Helbling 485. Was just fun though there was no sun and after an hour or so, it started to rain.

A friend an me, we decided this summer to join the local sailing club and to start sailing.

The lake with the sailing club area is just 1.5 kilometers from our flat, and I always wished to have my own boat. So, was just a question of time to start with this hobby.

And here is my boat. I bought it from a couple from the club who doesn’t need it anymore. Isn’t it beautiful? It’s a Helbling 485!

Next spring, as soon as there is enough water in the lake, I will do my first turn.

Normally I am not the guy who is buying a sports device before he is sure to practise the sport. But this time, it will be different. But I’m sure, this will become a lovely hobby.
