Smooth waters to Svendborg

June 1st. Following a few windy days in Preasto it is good to be underway again, and after
a careful passage across the notorious and shallow Bogestrom and we find a snug berth at Nyord for the night. an island barely a mile across.
Next port is Vordingborg, where we climb the hill a rare experience in Denmark and walk around the 'Goose tower' the only surviving remains of Denmarks' largest fortress dating back to 1200.

Taking advantage of calm weather we head further West towards Svendborg, stopping the night at the little island of Omo.

We reach Svendborg, gateway to the island archipelago, and home to many traditional Danish schooners and ketches.

Recycling at a whole new level, 

We learn that empty cans are valuable, this machine checks, counts, and credits each can showing the recycling logo.
