DAY THREE - THURSDAY, 4 NOVEMBER 2021

TRIP ON SCANLINES MV COPENHAGEN - DEPARTING: 04:15 - ESTIMATED ARRIVAL BACK TO HOTEL: 14:00

The rotor sail on M/V Copenhagen is based on the almost 100-year old concept of the Flettner rotor technology. It is a 30-metre tall, rotating cylinder, which by using the Magnus-effect contributes to pushing the ship forward. A rotor sail has the optimum effect when it is windy and the wind comes from the side. The route between Gedser to the north and Rostock to the south is almost perpendicular to the prevailing wind from the west or the east. This gives favourable conditions for using rotor sails on the crossing.
