Episode #3: Sailing in Germany. Trying strong river current for the first time.

In this episode 3 we arrive in Kiel, Germany and enter our very first lock in the Kiel Canal. It was also our first experience with strong river currents that makes for some very tense moments when trying to enter Cuxhaven.
In Cuxhaven they have a very interesting wind semaphore that was used to warn passing sailors of bad weather in the North Sea.
We get the mast down and start the trip on German canals towards Holland.
