Leaving Sweden behind

Our satellite phone works fine, we have received a few sms messages, which we appreciate greatly. We would like to thank the following for sweet greetings: Kerstin Jönsson, Eva Falk, Anders Ingerup, Christina Preby, Sofia & Per, Eva Ivansson.

We left Gothenburg as planned yesterday, but since it was blowing from the west, the direction we were going, we decided to anchor outside Kungsö in the southern part of the archipelago. We had a lovely afternoon, relaxing in the sun and doing some of all the small tasks that still remain. At 3 am this morning, the alarm went off and we left Sweden. The wind was weak and still from the west so we had to run the engine until early afternoon when the expected wind shift took place. The Navtex, which is a weather fax, brought us reports of gale warnings and strong winds from the east in the evening. Therefore we tried to keep up the speed, wanting to reach the entrance to Limfjorden before the wind increase. 9.30 pm we moored in Hals harbour, managing a quick visit to the local super market before dinner time. Tomorrow we will sail to Ålborg where we will drop of my sister and get a new delivery of forgotten things from my parents. /The Captain
