Skating with Ricky on Singöfjärden in Roslagen on mostly great ice. We took a loop north up towards Brännäset where we met the open water, and then made our way south-west towards the Singö bridges, before heading back towards Uddhamn, Herräng. The trip was around 33 kilometers in casual pace. Spring is just around the corner!

Sunday skating with Emil in Uppland.. We made a full run on Närdingen and had company of a fox running over the ice, then continued on Vällen with slightly worse conditions but still enjoyable..

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!

Sunrise freediving session at Tug 2 outside of Exiles in St. Julians, Malta. Once it got a bit brighter after sunrise we took turns and made a couple of swim-throughs. Nice way to start off the day!

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..
Sailing from Byxelkrok in northern Öland, first leg singlehanded up through the St Anna & Gryt archipelago, past Landsort to Nynäshamn. There Tommy joined and we had a great sail up north via Stora Nassa & Söderarm and finally Väddö channel and back to Herräng..
Sailing from Herräng to Byxelkrok on Öland in July 2018 with the lady in my Adagio 27 . Sunny warm weather, a lot of swimming to cool down, a lot of motoring. As usual, some highlights were Söderarm, Nåttaröfladen, Draget channel and the St Anna & Gryt archipelago. Great trip!

A roadtrip in Iceland with a mini campervan, all around the island with some detours and shorter hikes. Amazingly beautiful country, new postcard sceneries around every corner.. We were lucky with the weather for the season, mostly sunny but of course pretty windy and mostly 7-14 degrees.

Unusually late premier for the season due to work, travels and wonky weather.. Anyways, went up on a hunch to lake Tämnaren on Sunday and the old ice covered by snow had partially melted and re-frozen so it offered pretty decent conditions.. Being solo, I stayed close to the shore-line and avoided the more tricky parts of the lake..

Relaxed freediving with a colleague and some new acquaintances at Santa Maria Caves, northern side of Comino, Malta. Plenty of fish, lots of scuba divers, very clear and warm water.

Me & Carin left Herräng Friday night and started making our way south through Väddö Channel. Saturday morning offered pretty rough weather with heavy rain showers & winds gusting to gale. At around noon, the skies cleared and we arrived at Blidö guest harbour and met up with Marcus & Josefine for 24 hours of relaxing, sauna, crayfish party and a BBQ lunch. Sunday noon we headed back north, this time with sunshine and a fresh breeze from the tail so we had sporty sailing with only the genua.
