So after almost a year away sailing it was time for us to start our last longer sailing leg. We would sail from Scotland to the south-west coast of Sweden where Petras parents live.
We left Inverness in the afternoon and sailed with the tide out towards the North Sea. The first evening was calm and we motored all night. The following morning we got some wind and could set sails. Usually during our previous crossings we have filled in what we’ve been doing each day in the log book, but for this crossing we unfortunately did not. So this blog posts will be some snapshots of what we remember from the crossing.
In the beginning of the crossing we sailed through areas with a lot of oil rigs. But still they are quite far from each other. When you look at the charts it looks like it will be so crowded but in reality the distances are quite big. In general it was a good, but slow crossing. As we don’t have any day to day logs we will show some pictures instead.
We sailed to Arild, in southern part of Sweden as our first stop back in Sweden. When we reached the harbour in the morning we had some family and friends welcoming us.
