We are about to become landlubbers moving into a temporary apartment, disbanding our liveaboard lifestyle we have enjoyed since 1996. Reason being a needed osmosis treatment requiring Tina Princess to be moved in to a shed, drying out the hull and add protective layers of epoxy layers. This means every weekend has been precious so we can survive the winter months without sailing,
thinking about past weekends that have been very nice with perfect sailing conditions and unseasonal warm weather. The last couple of weeks we have been to Denmark twice (Läsö and Skagen) and in between a weekend spent in quiet anchorages in the Gothenburg area. We are likely taking a time out for 6 months updating this blog – as this is a liveaboard blog, and hopefully return to a new season in April. Until then, happy sailing and welcome back next year!
Great advice about what really matters in how to live your life.
Today was a day well spent. Öckerö Maritime Center held a full day training course about safety at sea. The agenda included trying out different survival suits, boarding a life raft, trying out handheld flares, emergency flares and so on. Good timing with water temp around 20C! A very well invested day arranged by JRSK and we all had a lot of fun.
Non Swedish / Gothenburg readers – suggest you move on to next post. Last weekend was the last dance entertainment on Brännö Brygga – to a large degree a tribute to Lasse Dahlquist. To get in the right mood – a half century after his glory days – Spotify is a great tool. After an hour of digging fantastic lyrics like “Cream cake Charlie”, your have to get to the dance floor
One of our all year round neighbours is a hairdresser. Three years ago my wife was convinced by her to skip the regular appointments with a hair dresser. Since then, the boat once in a while smells chlorine and this kind of appearance turns up from shower room.
Back after 3 weeks laid back sailing. Most nights spent at beautiful anchorages around Fyn, south Denmark.
Spent a week in south Denmark. The Danes have a name for warm, sunny spells, “Hedeboelge”. 28 degree C, three days in a row. We enjoy it very much. Last days spent in Langör (Samsö), Troense (Tåsingö) and Äringsköbing (Ärö). Only problem being at anchor for a week+ is dealing with garbage and (soon) water.
