The last trip this season

Another fantastic sailing week-end, which was actually the last trip for this season. It started on Saturday with a very warm SW wind, and we put up the gennaker-sail for a comfortable trip past Dalarö Skans, and then over Jungrufjärden, past Murtö-Bunsö and then out to Biskopsö.

We took anchorage in Koxviken, where you get shelter from most winds.

Janet went ashore mushroom picking just seconds after we had tied up Lady Ann. This is what she found just within 100 meters from the boat. This will be a tasty addition to this evenings dinner. Not bad at all.

Sunday gave a little more wind and now the wind had veered over more to south, so we got a nice portside reach all the way home to Dalarö. From here we motored the short distance to Karlslund, the home port.

We took down the sails and did a first cleanout of the boat. It is unbelievable how much you can get inside a boat. The sails we could store in our new storage hut, we have rented from the yard. It is really convenient.

This week-end was really a fantastic finish of the 2009 sailing season. Next week-end it will be mushroom picking in Roslagen, north of Stockholm.
