Midsummer by sea

Midsummer, as every good Swede knows is a time to disappear off to the country to be among good friends and celebrate the year's longest day - which I can tell you is loooong.  But if you are going to the country why not sail???

So three of us set off bright and early for a five hour sail - and much against tradition we had sunshine all the way , and not bad winds withall.

And, having arrived and slung the hook off the end of the jetty...  Lunch onboard - silltårta (herring tart), what else - and a little nubba,  a swim to cool down and freshen up, a quick change and then it's off to the party....

Grill lunch on Ornö. One of those bays we've been past lots of times, but perfect today when its blowing 9m/s and you want a bit of lee...

New wave

Sailing it may not be, but a canoeing course was still a perfect way to get out in the archipelago. :)

Widget wanted

It's a fine evening, and with great foresight I left a few things on board I need at home. So, after work, I caught the bus out to the marina to sit and enjoy a bite to eat at the bar on the waterside.
To while away the time before the bus back I set to on one of those small jobs that didn't make the winter jobs list Some time ago one of the handles on the floorboards broke. No big problem. I'll just swap the broken one for the one on the board with the spare anchor under.
As it happens it was not just a case off screwing it loose and screwing it back again. Strange but true, on the back they are not the same. So now, before I take a chisel to the floor I might as well see if I can get a new one.
Any tips?
