Journal Entry:
Excellent day sailing. Our boat indisputably won (although Thomas did dispute claiming that we used the engine). We sailed into Skagen at about 10:30pm and then spent a solid thirty minutes looking for docking space in the crowded harbor.

After the obligatory champagne and a few beers we headed out at 12:45 for a late diner of kabobs. Found a small night club playing mostly classic rock. Met up with some friends of Thomas and stayed out dancing until nearly five o'clock.

On return to the boat the inside vessel reported that he wanted to leave in thirty minutes (there were four boats side tied outside of him - including both of ours). We spent the next hour juggling boats so that he could get out. After he left while we were re-tying the various boats that had been disturbed, Albert jumped to the dock and landed on a cleat opening up a gash in his leg all the way to the shin bone. We cleaned it out and taped it up as well as possible then sent him off to the doctor at 8am. Finally to bed...
