Premier for the season 2016/2017! Drove to Jämtland Friday night , and unfortunately weather took a bad turn with rain, snow, and wind. But after a few hours of driving and scouting Saturday morning we ended up hiking to Blanktjärn. The ice wasn't great and the lake is small, but still a nice day out and great to be on ice skates again!

A great way to start they day! A sunrise freediving session together with Craig in Sliema, Malta, at Tugboat 2 outside of Exiles.. Max depth was 20.2 meter and we made some nice swim throughs on the wreck.. Was there on Tuesday also, but this time with a (new) GoPro..

Some casual free diving/snorkeling with Samuel at Ghar Lapsi on Malta, Sunday afternoon October 2nd. The tunnel is a nice swim-through, ending at around 5.8 meter depth.. The GoPro housing leaked so probably destroyed, but at least the memory card survived..

Got up at 0530 to meet up with Emil and we headed in two cars to northern Roslagen for some paddle boarding.. Starting at Vällen lake, we paddled north to the Kolmoraån and then glided downstream through beautiful forrest wilderness.. We exited Kolmoraån at Aspdalssjön where I wrapped up the session with an unplanned swim, but that didn't matter much with the drysuit..

Sunday daysailing (or mostly motoring) west to the inner Roslagen archipelago with Östhammar as destination.. Their marina offered a decent pizza despite being last day before shutting down for the season..

Early Saturday morning iSUP session with Emil, starting in Sickla and heading east to Fisksätra with a great tail wind pushing us forward.. Small city adventures like this makes a great difference!

After the nightwatch shift on the boat club, me and the lady headed off on Saturday morning to Måssten, a nice island east of Singö.. It used to be a military base back in the days of the cold war era, with plenty of remains still well visible.. The rocky island offers diverse nature and many stunning views..

Sailing from home harbor north & north-west around Gräsö & Örskär.. Saturday night, just the short jump to Brännäset, and on Sunday the not very long distance up to Öregrund but with some pretty gusty wind at times.. Monday I rounded Örskär and headed south-east on the outer side.. This section is fairly tricky as it is a shallow archipelago with underwater rocks everywhere to zig-zag around.. Tuesday morning the final stretch back to harbor where I spent some hours working on the boat with some maintenance and upgrades..

Return cruise from Northern Öland to Herräng, Singöfjärden.. Covered a fair distance first 2 days, then slowed down as I passed Oxelösund.. In Nynäshamn I picked up Tommy for 2 days before continuing solo again from Stavsnäs.. Fantastic sailing through beautiful scenery with great summer weather..
Saturday, July 16, 2016
6 days of cruising from Herräng west of Grisslehamn to Nabbelund, Northern Öland. Varied and unstable weather and most of the wind from south-west. Company by the lady first half of the trip and then singlehanded the final 3 days.

Sailing first weekend of July, leaving Herräng at around 11, heading north-west to Fälön where we stopped for a few hours with a nice lunch on the BBQ with marinated ribs, and a siesta.. We woke up to stronger winds bouncing the boat, so we continued north-west to Askö where we found a sheltered inlet in company of a few other boats.. Some red wine, more meat for dinner and going for a litle excursion with the tiny inflatable dinghy.. Tacking south on Sunday via Brännäset, and finishing the weekend by ripping the genoa, so went to the sailmaker in a hurry Monday to get it repaired before the summer vacation..

An extended weekend due to public holiday, we headed out Saturday morning for 3 days of sailing.. With a fresh breeze touching gale from North we first headed down through Väddö channel, and anchored in Österhamn, Lidön for the first night.. On Sunday, we took a sheltered course east over to Gisslingsö where we arrived at noon in the inlet south of Betsebergen.. A nice walk through the woods to stretch the legs, and then some hotdogs on the BBQ.. More lazying about and a second meat BBQ for dinner.. Monday morning, the northerly winds faded away and changed to calm and then a southernly breeze, perfect timing as we were heading back north through the Väddö channel again.. Great sailing season so far, with summer just around the corner!

Pre-summer sailing with the lady, Saturday 21st-22nd. Anchoring for the night at a little island next to Stora Risten.. Shifting winds, mostly from south, partially cloudy on Saturday but in the evening it cleared up and the archipelago was magically beautiful.. Some exploration with the little dinghy on Sunday morning, before heading back south via Korsskären and over Singöfjärden..

Four days of great single-handed sailing with my Bellona 23, a small yacht from the 70's.. Quite sunny and warm for this early in the season with a steady high-pressure.. Covered some 160 kilometers in mostly light winds and I anchored in some really nice inlets; Lidön, Villösan & Brännäset..

Easter cycling on southern Öland, making a 80 kilometer lap on a sunny but somewhat chilly day.. Starting at Mörbylånga and doing a clock-wise run via the Långe Jan lighthouse at Ottenby.. Nice tail wind last hour certainly helped..
