A North Sea crossing to London


On Monday morning the 16th of October MY Livingstone left the port of Vlissingen for London. MY Livingstone set sail on the Westerschelde towards the North Sea with the rising autumn sun at stern. The Sun proved to be an excellent companion upon the sundeck where later on everyone on board enjoyed lunch.

On the North Sea the yacht encountered various conditions. A calm sea with sunny conditions when crossing shipping lanes and wind force seven when approaching Margate at the English coast. When the wind rose the sturdy hull and Naiad stabilizers proved their value by offering a comfortable ride to all on board.

As the evening fell a mooring was found at Gravesend to spend the night. The next day MY Livingstone continued the journey upon the Thames, crossing the Queen Elisabeth II Bridge and the Thames Barrier into London.

The friendly personal from St. Katharine Docks gave MY Livingstone a warm welcome at the lock towards the docks. After locking MY Livingstone found a beautiful mooring where she blended in well with the surroundings as a floating villa in the middle of the city of London.
