Good day to U all! Thanks for all nice comments on the blog. Thanks Lars-Arne, (friend and colleague from Umeå) for sharing the latest on water height in Ratan outside Umeå. Yes, low water can be a pain when setting the boat afloat. Hope the latest reading +/- zero centimeter make ends meet. Keep a steady grip on the oars! We're a little bit tired today. Maiken was rolling away all night. Heel to heel, side to side, all downwind. Should have had the hammock mounted! The morning started up with a short squall and then sun, sun and more sun. After some vanilla flavored espresso coffee and Bruce Hornsby I started to feel awake around eight a clock. Up with the Genoa again, and steady we go. Baked bread for lunch. Did nicely with the Västerbotten cheese that we brought (local prestigious cheese from my county, world famous in Sweden) . Power nap in the afternoon. Woke by Fredrik yelling - FISH!! Beautiful tuna that made Fredrik sweat even more before he could reel it in.
I wish you were here to join us for dinner. We've got the fish and the bread! You just bring a smile and some ice cold beer.
