Sailing, July 28th

Headed out singlehanded on Saturday afternoon for the first time, unfortunately in fairly strong wind.. A bit more challenging for sure, and I chickened out a bit, only sailing with the jib downwind and motoring the rest.. Still, useful experience, altough for sure it's more fun with company..

Sailing to Måssten, 22nd of July

Sunday sailing with brother Jon, to the island Måssten, a former coastal artillery base.. The cannon turrets are nowadays removed, with the holes filled with concrete.. The sea-charts shows non-existent under water rocks at the entrance to the small inlet, probably to scare off civilians from going ashore back in the days of cold war..

Sailing to Öregrund, 13th to 15th of July

Sailing with the lady from harbour in Hensvik on Friday evening, to Brännäset where we stayed the first night.. Had forgot to bring both sleeping bags as well as cutlery but we managed anyways.. Continued north-bound on Saturday up towards Öregrund where we stayed for the night next to Kalvö.. Sunday morning greeted us with heavy rain which continued the whole day.. We motored back and enjoyed the shelter in cockpit under a tarp..
