The night is just a day without light- from the physical point of view this quote from Michael Ende’s “Momo” is correct, but sailing at night is still feels very different. The wind always seems to be twice as strong, the waves humongous, and every noise sounds like the imminent failure of hull, rudder or mast. We finally got our first night sailing experience with proasis past Wednesday. Coincidentally that was half time of the Kiel Sailing Week and we could enjoy the spectacular fireworks in Schilksee on our way out. Sailing went very smooth and we could test our navigation light setup under real conditions.
