Bronze sculpture of a girl with a sail boat in her hands, standing on a brick base representing a wave.
Unveiled at the 275st anniversary of Carolinensiel on 28 May 2005. The sculptors were insprired by Marie Ulfers' novel Windiger Siel (Windy Sluice). In Carolinensiel it were actually the women who determined the town, since the boatmen were often gone for weeks or months. The statue show however not a mourning or waiting woman, as is often seen, but a woman looking forward.
