Gothenburg to Traslovslage

Sunday 17 May, 2009 sailing from Gothenburg to Varberg
Position 0730 UTC 57* 39.6 N 11* 51.03 E

Hoisted aboard the dinghy. Leave port running on the engine in light
drizzle and little wind. On board we have the crew; Christina, Joakim,
and Johannes, all excited about being on our way. At 1000 UTC we cut the
engine and run on sails, little wind, so we do not get far. After 3
hours we start the engine again and move southwards. The scenery is
nice, many small stony islands in the Gothenburg archipelago. Land looks
like stony desert here, unable as we are to see the forested inlands.
We arrive at Varbergs southern harbour (Träslövsläge) at 1730 UTC. Very
cozy place indeed. Well sheltered and easy to get in and out of by boat.
On the radio we hear a near gale warning for the northern Skagerack.
That may mean we will have wind to sail tomorrow? Here, the wind is only
2-3 msec. Not much at all. During the evening in port it drizzled
lightly. Good to have a roof over our heads. Good night!
