Klar zur Wende

9 x 11,5 cm

We wanted to practice sailing before we went to Hungary, so we went to a small lake in Germany a couple of times. Roland taught me the German terms, one being "Klar zur Wende". The captain says it when he wants people to change sides to shift the weight. Sometimes it has to happen in seconds. He says Klar zur Wende, I make sure the ropes are clear, etc. and answer Klar zur Wende.  When he says "Ree!"  I (or both of us) change sides. The wind can change very suddenly, and we have to be careful the boom doesn't hit us in the head.

The last time I heard the words Klar zur Wende on a boat, was a couple of seconds before we were dunked into a Hungarian lake.
