Coming back from Stockholm February 1 and the funeral of Björns cousin we went sailing on the 3:rd to take advantage of the weather and have some peaceful time alone and reflect. It was very nice to be able to rest after an emotional – and stressful week in Stockholm.
We have been sailing south to Gothenburg area twice and north to Lysekil once, spending almost no time at our winter jetty during February!
The month have been a very windy, but we have manage to find good places to wait for weather and in between have wonderful days of sailing. Sometimes almost like in summer time with little wind, but most of our sailing have been in strong winds from behind. We definitely prefer that direction in wintertime.
The second time in Gothenburg we had four days of work to exchanging our two forestays and the aft stay. We replaced the two in front as it’s difficult to inspect the wire as it is hidden in a profile for the sails. The aft stay was replaced as we wanted a stronger stay to match with the two forestays. Now we have dyform wire in all three to get more strength without having to change the wire diameter and new furlers.
Coming back to our jetty at the end of February, we left Moon for a week to visit Björn’s mother in Helsingborg.
