Day 4 – Karlskrona-Stockholm

Monday 28 June 2010
Borgholm harbour
56*53 N 016* 38 E

On our way at 1030 local time. Nice weather, Winds S 5-7 ms Again 22*C in the air. But the barometer is falling slowly. Better enjoy the weather while it lasts. We have wind and from the south so we have the foresail out on the spinnaker boom and just enjoy the ride…

Later in the afternoon the wind picks up again (S-SW 8-10 ms) and we have the wind against the current, so waves a growing short but high (>2 m). No big deal, but quite a contrast with the easy flat sea from the past few days.

At 2040 local time we drop anchor in a small bay in the Kråkelund archipelago on the side of the mainland Sweden. Our position is now 57* 32.028 N 016* 45.831 E

The natural surroundings are beautiful. Well worth a visit. We have 7m water under the boat, and this cove is well protected from all sides. Time for a quick late dinner and then turn in for getting on our way early tomorrow.

Goodnight! Here is a picture of Blå Jungfrun.
And a grumpy skipper!
