10-11/10 weekend Västingskär

10/10 Saturday 

We decided not to start our sailing weekend Friday but Saturday so we went out from the harbour at 11.00 . Our plan was to see if we could stay at tån North but when trying we realised the boat was to big for laying long side.

We therefore tested västingskär a vey narrow spot that we never visited before. After some tries we managed to dock in a great place.

Sunday 11/10

We spend time in the boat until lunch. Thereafter we used the kayak and discovered the area. Even a seal was surprised seeing us paddling around.

On our way back to the harbour we made a short stop at the south side of Tån. On the east side it seems we can dock long side another time.

2-4/10 weekend sailing

2/10 friday

Friday evening and we were tired and therefore we did not leave the harbour. Food and Idol on the iPad and that’s it.

Pretty nice weather with wind from South. We had a talk with our neighbours who normally lives in Dalarna and are seldom at the boat. Anna and myself relaxed for a while and than we departures towards stocken. A place we never been to by boat. The village is a typical summer village so very few people was around.

 A bit crazy night. But now we are on our way North towards Basteviksholmarna. Weather is quit Nice, you see the sun through the clouds. The wind is only 3-4ms so it is a nice journey.

Saturday 20/9 

The wind was gone and the sun was shining. We went by engine the short distance to Grötö. We tried the long site at the far west first but decided to change to the one more into the bay. 

We had a nice afternoon, I took the canoe and went to the beach while Anna was finishing her work. I walked around this nice area called Nävkärr with a heritage since the Vikings :-). When I came back I found Anna naked on the boat after a bath!!!! Wow what a view.

We both slept in the sun for a while. Anna did also take the canoe and walked around the area. 

The evening was nice.

Sunday 21/9

We woke up and had breakfast in blue sky and not much wind. We relaxed until we decided to go back to our home harbour. When depaturing we understood that we were stocked into the sand as the water level decreased. We managed by engine to reverse and set course to basteviksholmarna.

Me and Bjorn met in his house a went by my car to the harbour. We arrived approx two a clock and repaired the boat. We set the sail and went west of Malmon towards Hallo and towards Väderöarna. We had great sailing in approx 9ms from east and we sailed with a speed of 9,5 knots. 

At väderöarna it was boats at the pier were we good anchore so we decided to go to fjallbacka. We found a good place there and instead of preparing the dinner Bjorn suggested we eat that the restaurant. Easy choice….

Saturday 12/9

We sailed north in nice weather via Havstensund stopped for lunch at Resö before we continued to Stromstad. Christian arrived almost at the same time we came to Stromstad. We took a beer in the boat before we went to the restaurant. We all were tired so we went to bed shortly after 22.oo. All of us woke up around midnight due to the party on the restaurant close by. Not a good night.

Sunday 13/9

It was sunny weather but we all was tired due to the party at the restaurant. We even said it would have been better if we joined the party…

We departured the harbour at 09.30 and sailed through Kosterfjorden, via Havstensund straight towards hamburgön and thereafter towards smögen. We had nice sailing in wind from south east up to 11ms but with only genua it went good. 

After Smögen we went inshore to our harbour.

A great weekend with friends.

We went to bed early and Anna start sleeping at 8pm but I continuing reading before I decided to try to start sleeping at 9 pm. Bug mistake as I woke up several times during the night and finally decided to go up at 6am. I did some work before I woke up Anna at 8 am. 

After lunch our friends Nettan and Micke arrived. We went by engine and sail to smogen. During the journey Anna and Nettanshareda bottle of Champaign so they were In good shape when we arrived. 

We had a prawn lunch and  when me and Micke had coffee the girls went shopping ending up in a bar. 

When sailing back we went off shore and Micke and Nettan did the steering. The evening was relaxing.

Sunday starting with some work before we set course towards bonden island in a bit bumby sea. The wind was approx 7ms and the sky was blue I.e great for sailing.

  As always – a great weekend.

We left the Harbour a bit late and opt for l:a Kornö but we continued south towards vasholmarna via gåsö. We saw Hans and Christel and Said hello before we continued. At vasholmarna it was crowded with boats so we continued to Gullholmen. We arrived approx 21.00 so we made dinner and relaxed for a while before we went to bed.

We had a relaxing morning in the boat before we started to go with engine towards fjallbacka archipelago. I showed Agnes Kyrkogårdsön before we went to Gluppöbassängen were we Achored and had lunch. It was not that many boats but the sxk boj was occupied. 

After lunch we sailed towards Grebbestad. We got a nice place to dock which Agnes did very well. After i while four gentlemen Cameron forward to the boat and Said we had a nice boat. I had seen US in gluppöbassängen earlier that day. We inviter them into the boat and when coming on board they introduced them self. One was Pelle P !!! I Said to Agnes, who were fully Dressed up with Pelle P clouds, who he was as Agnes did not regognize him. The four gentlemen had an awarage agenda of 81 in their boat maxi 1300 (of course:-)) They went from Harbour to Harbour for playing golf. 

In the evening Agnes and I went biking (sportshopen was closed) and to the fishstore to buy prawns as Julia Steffner should arrive. We bought 1.5 kg (using Anna as reference) but when we eat them Agnes are 7 prawns and me and Julia not that much. We had much left over.

12/8 Hunnebostrand – Väderöarna

Sunny day and 4 ms W

We woke up to a beautiful day. I had a Volvo audio conference in the morning while Agnes was sleeping. By the time Agnes woke up the conference was ready so we could have a joint breakfast. 

We decided to take course towards Väderöarna and hoped to get room for our boat. We had a very nice sailing all the way and lucky for us when arriving the harbor captain directed us towards pier that was empty. Surprising to us as the clock was 14.00. Agnes docked the boat perfectly.

The afternoon was spent in the cockpit relaxing. Agnes slept for 2-3 hours in the sun. She really needs to relax. When she woke up we took a walk up to the lotsutkik and got a presentation of the history before we went up into the utkik. Thereafter we walk cross the island to stromsund and back. 

Evening was spent in the boat reading and practicing knots.
