XC-Skating Tämnaren & Vendelsjön, Dec 14th

First XC-session for the season, where we headed to Tämnaren and Vendelsjön in northern Uppland.. Sunny day and around -2C.. Rather thin ice on Tämnaren so we progressed with great care.. More stable conditions on Vendelsjön where we could increase the pace a fair bit..

Scuba Diving, Cirkewwa Malta, Sat 30th of Nov

Saturday diving with Dive Systems on Malta, 29th of November 2014.. We visited the two scuttled wrecks "Tugboat Rosie" and "P29 Patrol Boat" at Cirkewwa.. Cloudy day so a bit dark down on 30+ meters.. Sea temperature is now around 19C.. The other divers were doing a wreck diving course so I had a look around and inside the boats myself, filming with my GoPro Hero 3+ and a new telescopic GoPole stick..

Sports Climbing, Cobra Cave, Sat. 11th of Oct

Saturday sports climbing with the Malta Climbing Club at Cobra Cave.. A location where the routes are new and the cave offered nice shade around noon.. Did a couple of 6A+ routes and got pumped pretty much immediately,  I need to do this much more often.. But regardless, nice training and great company on a sunny day!

Sportsclimbing, Ghar Lapsi Caves & Xaqqa Seacliffs, Sep. 21st

On Sunday we continued the climbing with more sports-routes at Ghar Lapsi Caves and a multi-pitch at Xaqqa Seacliffs.. I was not impressed by my climbing form, but at least I'm starting to get the hang of techniques for rope-work and safety again.. We wrapped up the weekend with some DSW-traverses where the swims when falling were very enjoyable..

Sportsclimbing, Southern Malta, Sept 20th

Trying to get back into climbing so headed to southern Malta with the guide Kurt and tried out routes in Wied Babu and Ghar Lapsi area.. 33 degrees Celsius and 80% humidity took its toll but luckily we had a steady breeze to soften the blow a bit..

Wreck Diving Malta, Um El Faroud, Sept 14th

Sunday diving on the Um El Faroud wreck at Wied iz Zurrieq / Blue Grottos on Malta.. 1st dive was pretty regular, mostly on the outside with some quick swim-throughs, on the second dive we explored the inner parts of the boat, heading down into the engine room etc. Max depth was close to 35 meters with a dive time of about 40 minutes total. Mid-September but still around 25 C sea temperature.

Sailing, Roslagen, September 6th-8th

Sunny September sailing with colleagues from work and with the lady.. This time of the year the nights and mornings are fairly chilly, causing fog to roll in from the open sea.. It lifts after some hours of sun though and during the days temperature rose to around 20 C.. We anchored for the night at  a great spot on the north-western side of Fälön, very scenic and good protection from easterly winds..

Scuba Diving, Um el Faroud, Aug 24th

A pretty bad video of the Um el Faroud Wreck :-)  Visibility was unusually poor due to winds whipping up sand and sediment, and we didn't make any proper swim-throughs at this dive.. But regardless, one of the better wrecks around Malta, I'be been there 3 or 4 times before and it's always enjoyable..

Sailing to Kalvudden, 19th-21st of July



With the RayMarine ST1000 tiller pilot installed and the sheets pulled down to the cockpit, time to try some single-handed sailing with the Bellona.. Everything worked great, much safer and more comfortable.. I spent the first night at Brännäset and the second at Kalvudden close to Öregrund.. Mostly sunny with a light breeze..
