After the passage through Amsterdam (which took 4 hours due to a broken
bridge),we came out in the "Nordzeekanal"heading for Six Haven marina.The
traffic in the Nordzeekanal is heavy and it´s a bit tricky to find your
way through with all navigation lights mixed with lights from a major
city.At 5 o´clock in the morning we tied up in Six Haven and went to
bed.It took us 3 days and 1 night to reach Amsterdam through the "Standing
Mastroute".The alternative is to sail the North Sea over Ijmuiden and
through the Nordzeekanal in to Amsterdam.It´s certainly faster but perhaps
not that rewarding....
