The following pictures are from a three day "just fun" trip home to Middelfart in the month of October 1986, after the last passengers had left in Kiel in North Germany.
The good food and beer which the passengers had not managed to consume during the season, was now eaten by the crew while sailing her home to a winters rest and maintenance after a busy summer, with lots of scenic trips and exploring between the green Danish islands.

Please enjoy my images of the "homeward bound" trip of schooner "Nordboen" way back in 1986.
