For the second day winds are ahead of weather forecast which we do not want this time. A perfect North for crossing from Vlissingen to Dover yet 35 knots or force 8 was not fun so instead we got to also visit Belgium briefly. Zeebrugge offered super protection. Instead afternoon with school and a short walk in what turned out to only be a very commercial harbour. Brugge is the real city 6M up the canal. Elin continues math class with tide and navigation planning tonight).
