Sometimes sailing through the archipelago is like sailing through a world of ago. But, what a change, just after turning the corner of Broken we were back in reality. The steel works of Oxelösund made sure that we don’t forget the century we live in. Interesting idea in connection with the book I’ve almost finished:… Artikel ansehen
We had nice wind, only from ahead. And either there was open water, but with so many unmarked shallows that we didn’t dare beating or it was just too narrow. So we used the motor all day. But it was worth it! The way here was beautiful and then we arrived at the ‚felicity island‘…. Artikel ansehen
A mostly gray day. Wind was between 0 and 5bft, meaning between using the motor and thinking about reducing the sail-size. When we arrived, the only boat in the harbor, there was a little sunshine, now it’s raining. But we had a good potato-tomato-casserole and now there’ll be an espresso and some sweets. Nice, hah?
In Malmakvarn we used moskito-nets for the first time, here they are drying from the mist of the night. Then we had a wonderful day of sailing, t-shirt and shorts today, again. The wind got quite strong after a while but hardly any waves so – lots of fun! The harbor on Utö offered two… Artikel ansehen
Another beautiful day – t-shirt sailing! When we left Vaxholm there was this chance for a better picture of the fortress. Apart from that the day started with very light winds again, but after an hour we hoisted the sails and used them instead of the motor until the wind died again about half an… Artikel ansehen
Do the pictures all look the same? Another beautiful day, the wind got warmer the farther we got from the outer to the inner archipelago. Fortunately it also got stronger, Karsten was already talking about ‚hard work‘ because he found being so slow difficult to stand. When I looked for the geocache on the little… Artikel ansehen
We had to beat upwind all day and it was fun! Because there was time, space and sun we were enjoying it. Along the way there were seven huge ferries and cruise ships we had to watch out for. Now we’re moored at a tiny island – with a museum. At the beginning of the… Artikel ansehen
Good bye Ålands, together with the Finnish archipelago the most beautiful area to be at with a boat! Hello Sweden and the Stockholm archipelago!
A little bike ride, couple geocaches while the sun was shining in the morning, since then it’s been raining. Meaning: there is a lot of time for reading, and for planning. The result is a change of plans. Since the weather forecast for Sunday has gradually changed we’d probably have to beat upwind. So we’ll… Artikel ansehen
A little bit of sailing and then there was this beautiful narrow passage for about 5nm. You notice the hammocks on the porch of that little beach-house? No beach but I wouldn’t know another name for it. Here in Degerby we’ll probably stay for tomorrow. The weather forecast predicts nasty weather, also we have two… Artikel ansehen
