Sailing, ARC 2018, Nov 22nd-Dec 10th

On November 21st I flew down to Gran Canaria to join the crew of Challenger 3, a 72 feet sloop participating in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers 2018. We were 13 people on board in total including the skipper and mate. The ARC is an event that has been running for some 30 years with up towards 200 boats participating in different classes - We were in the monohull racing class. The passage took 15 days and nights, mostly with a fresh breeze from astern and in the later stage we got a couple of squalls to avoid or sail through. After finishing, I spent 1 week in Saint Lucia, a lovely island in the Caribbean. A great sailing adventure and a fantastic holiday!

25 hours in the beautiful nature reserve Kindla, situated north-west of Guldsmedshyttan. Kindla is a 3 hours drive from Stockholm. We were lucky with mostly sunny weather and warm temperatures for the season. We entered from the parking at Kroktjärn, hiked up to Kindlahöjden for lunch and great views from the tower, and then made our way past Kindlamossen to Klosstjärn where we spent the afternoon and evening enjoying the calm scenery while having a nice fire going for hotdogs and coffee.. By noon on Sunday we were back at the starting point, nicely rebooted and ready for city-life again..

Sailing Around Åland, July-August 2018

Sailing singlehanded from Herräng a lap around Åland in varied conditions.. First afternoon I headed up to Brännäset, and early in the morning I made my way across Ålands Hav, passing Hellmansundet.. I continued clock-wise on the northern side of the group of islands, mostly motoring.. The second day the wind gradually started to pick up, in the late afternoon reaching gale force gusts at times.. I stayed in Käringsund for 2 nights, doing some maintenance work and relaxing and we got some proper thunder showers the last night.. On my way back to the Roslagen archipelago on the Swedish side, I past a grey seal colony and Märket, a rocky island with a lighthouse marking the boarder between the countries..

Skating, Närdingen, Dec 23rd

Me and Ricky headed to Erken on Saturday morning where I though we'd find the full lake nicely frozen, but that turned out not to be the case.. A quick review of maps and we went to Närdingen close by which had really nice conditions, despite the light rain and a few degrees above freezing point.. About 1 hour and some 15 kilometers of skating later we wrapped it up, to get back ot final christmas preparations in Stockholm..
