Scheveningen The Netherlands to Boulogne sur mer in France

130,6 Nm started in Scheveningen 06:30 30/7-2015 and arrived in Boulogne-sur -mer 07:30 31/7-2015 after 25 hours. The first 2 hours sailing for motor upwind with very high waves, were not nice at all. Happily we could set sail and we had wonderful sailing all the way to Boulogne. After sunset we enjoyed the moon and the stars along the French cost the whole night. Sailing into the harbour was easy and we mourned on a floating bridge like al the other places here in northern France and excellent help from a Belgian sailor. Six meter low tide was amazing and we decided not to go to bed but take the steep gangway up and the bridge over to the village and get baguette at a boulangerie and delicious Rochefort cheese at a fromagerie to enjoy for breakfast on board. Very good harbour with fine service like a recycling station close by, so we could get rid of special oil waste, cans, plastic, hard paper. Also very helpful when we should tank diesel next day at 11 hour at high tide. We needed high tide in order not to hit some dangerous rocks near the fuel station.
