Free-Climbing, Wied iz Zurrieq Traverse, May 17th

Back on Malta, enjoying the nice weather with a re-visit to the free-climbing traverse around Wied iz Zurrieq next to the popular Blue Grottos.. It is relatively easy with only 2-3 cruxes but the real challenge is the razor-sharp handholds and being prepared to push-off the rock if you slip to avoid the cheese grinder experience..

Transport Voyage with New Sailboat, 10th-11th of May

Time to take the new sailboat home from where it was when I bought it in Österskär, Åkersberga, to my home harbour at the Herrängs Boatclub.. It's a Bellona 23, from the late 70's, nothing fancy but with some renovation and upgrades it should do the job nicely.. The distance of approximately 130 kilometres included the busy Furusund shipping lane, passing Kapellskär harbour, and then through the Väddö channel with two bridge openings.. We motored about 9 hours on Saturday and another 4 on Sunday, almost becalmed the whole time so no sailing.. A bit chilly for the season with 5-9 C mixed with rain and at times, fairly dense fog..
