I never meant this thread to be a blog of any kind. My reason for starting the thread needs to be seen in the light of my contribution to the forum at the time when I started the thread eight years (!) ago. Back then I was entering an exciting journey that was worth writing about. That does not mean that every year is as exciting and I don't want to bore anybody by writing about things that just any Hanse sailor can experience for themselves. So, even if I had some very nice sailing north along the Swedish east coast in waters I have never sailed before, I felt it was nothing to write a lot about. I however have some pictures that I would like to share.

Now, when I am about to write a new post in this thread I often land on page 1 and there is a picture of my daughter helping out in the lock on our way out of the Lake Mälaren into the Baltic. As the years have gone by, this picture makes me chuckle. She was so small then!

Here is a picture of her this year. Even in the eyes of a father it is inevetible to see she has grown.

The soon-to-become-teenagers now use the dinghy to find a spot where they can enjoy the sunset and have "deep talk", as they put it themselves. Isabel had her usual friend sailing with us.

The ship's cat Leonardo is also enjoying his time on board. He starts his day when everybody else finishes theirs.

Everyone will remember 2020 as a very strange year. I will try to remember it for other and more positive things.

For example, Emilia turned 15 years old this summer. It is hard to believe I have sailed my boat for so long! But the love grows stronger and stronger. I think I learn something new every time I sail her.

I also realised that I have been a forum member for 15 years! That's even harder to believe. The internet has changed a lot over these year. Much is for the worse so I glad myHanse is still there for us.

Hello Johan

You are right on all counts. We do need to look on the bright side. You have entertained and educated us with your posts sharing your sailing - and life - experiences. The 15 years have passed by unbelievably rapidly.  

And yes - myHanse is a very welcome and valuable resource - linking us all together.

Best wishes


Richard
