The wind had blown itself out, at least temporarily and we woke to a bright, sunny morning. It was forecast to be blowy again this afternoon and much less on Friday morning, backing to the SE and hopefully, a perfect direction for our crossing to Denmark. Before leaving, we did a last shop in the ubiquitous ICA supermarket (this one was bigger and better than most) and we were on our way by 10:45. Yesterday, we ...
We woke to a lovely day, with only a light breeze. Mind you, the weather we were experiencing was at least 5 or even 10 degrees cooler than the UK, we were expecting similar temperatures here at this time of the year. Still, it was warm enough and we were out of the harbour and into the sound heading northwards by 10:00. Our destination was not a huge distance away, it was the island of Koön which boasts the harbour of ...

It was quite a breezy day but we were relatively sheltered by a small rocky cliff so we made the most of our position and spent an hour or so in the cockpit watching the comings and goings of the people and boats in this pretty harbour.

As our guests only have a few days remaining, there was little point making any great distances northwards and there is plenty to see in the Gothenburg archipelago, the principal islands being (from S-N) Fotö, Hönö, Öckerö, Grotö,Hälsö,Björkö,Källö-Knippla,Hyppel n and Rörö. It's only a few miles, 10 at most, from the bottom to the top of the island chain so we didn’t need to leave at the crack of dawn to get to our ...
