On tuesday 19 August 2004 we left Fribourg in western Switzerland and travelled by car to the City of Empuria Brava (Costa Brava) in Spain.
There we prepared HB9CZD's sailing ship "Ulysse".
On Friday 20 August we sailed from Empuria Brava to the harbor of L'Estartit.
During the Lighthouse Weekend Activity 21 + 22 August we could reach the 1000 QSO mark.
Thes Station was:

A great thank you goes to Jean-Pierre, HB9CZD, for the idea and the short sailing trip with his sailing ship "Ulysse".
Many thanks to all who made this activity possible and we enjoyed all the QSOs.
