Den Helder has a wonderful harbour and the service was just amazing. It was not before we were leaving the problem started.
15 minutes out we had to start the engine to help us around the corner due to current. When trying to start everything went black so we had to tack 90 degrees to avoid land and then call the harbour on VHF to get some assistance.
The SAR rescue boat came out and helped us by towing us back to the harbour.
The harbourmaster came down to the pier and helped us by calling an electrician.
Within one hour the electrician came and he quickly located the problem.
Second time in a few hours we were on our way out of Den Helder harbour.
10 minutes out we were stopped by the police boat. This was clearly the day for everything!
The police were very friendly and came aboard checking all our papers and had a tour around the boat. He was happy so he just gave us a little advice and wished us safe travels.
Now we were of to Haag
