Logbook entry #2 | First stop – first inclined position

Yesterday he left the Hamburg harbour at dawn. Today Axel Hackbarth is already 150 kilometres away from the Hansestadt. Via Cuxhaven he sailed to Helgoland, where his boat lies at anchor right now. The Zest, the boat’s name, still has thousands of kilometers to go – a first test she had to pass already:

And that’s how the “control room” looked like afterwards. We only can hope, that the radio device is the only thing, which flies around on board of the Zest.


Up next, Axel is going to sail along the dutch and belgium coast, and then straight through the English Channel. You can follow him on our map. KiteWorldWide wishes lots of wind.
