In the trade winds

Last night we got a couple of hours of wind above 10 knots, after that it was a night with flapping sails and bad sleep due to all noise generated by the sails. Now we are below 20 degrees north and where the trade winds begin to blow mainly from NE and it is now around 15 knots and we begin to see larger swell. I have started to finish up the first videos from our trip down to Canary Islands.

What was that? and La Palma

20 september 2019

Lämnar Porto Santo idag för två dagars segling till La Palma, en av de mindre Kanarieöarna. Det blir så nära perfekt segling som det bara går. Börjar med motorgång och vi passar på att bada.

Leaves Porto Santo today heading to La Palma, one of the smaller Canary Islands and it will take us 2 days of sailing to get there. It gets as close to perfect sailing as possible. While motoring we take the opportunity to jump into the water.

Porto Santo

4 september 2019

Idag lämnar vi Cascais för tre dagars segling till Porto Santo, en liten ö norr om Madeira. Vi har ingen aning om hur länge vi kommer stanna där, det får visa sig, beroende på hur vi trivs. Till slut blev det två väldigt sköna veckor.

Today we leave Cascais for three days sailing to Porto Santo, a small island north of Madeira. We have no idea how long we will stay there, it may turn out. In the end, we stayed two weeks, and it was two very nice weeks.

Lisbon and Sweden

29 juli 2019

Vi lämnade Porto igår och hade en bra segling hit till Lissabon. Lite dimma, vi är ju i Portugal :), men också möjlighet att sätta vår nya gennaker igen. Provade även fiskelyckan, men tyvärr, ingen fångst idag heller.

We left Porto yesterday and had a good sailing to Lisbon. A little fog, we are in Portugal :), but also the opportunity to use our new gennaker again. Tried the fishing luck too, but unfortunately, no catch today either.
