Week 13 25 – 31 March 2019 Helsingborg
An efficient week with cool weather, ended with a pre summer Saturday!
Monday, sorted up everything in the boat to change her from a floating home to a sailing ship! Lots of new food was stored in our lockers and a few remaining items were attended. The wind vane was brought back and mounted on the transom, except for the vane and rudder that was sowed away, waiting for longer passages.
The steering wheel is completed and calibrated to the autopilot, meaning the autopilot knows when the rudder is amidships.
We had a final meeting with the social care for Björn’s mother to make sure that everything can work fine when we are not any longer live in the harbour. More resources are needed when we aren’t shopping, cleaning and doing her laundry.
We got some last minute visitors. Friends from Gothenburg came visiting us for a late dinner and lots of talk about their newly bought Moody 42, brought back from France this winter.
Saturday came with summer temperature and almost no wind.
Hoisted the main to get it fixed to the mast and to tension all battens.
Moon got a very needed clean up on deck and cockpit. Moon looks very tidy and eager to get going.
Sunday brought winter back again with gale force from the North West. We keep our sea legs even in harbour!
Had a farewell dinner with Björn’s mother, cleaned the car and left it in hers garage for the summer and walked back to Moon.
Hopefully the forecast with south easterly for Tuesday will come true and we can get a comfortable ride to the north.
