This is to let you know that S/Y Emilia has been sailing South from Stockholm since a week. The plan is to follow the Swedish East, South and West coast and to visit Öresund.

If you spot us - don't be shy. If on the water, wave all you can - if in a harbour, come over for a chat.

Emilia has now reached Öresund. I tried to gather the crew to take a group picture when we were about to sail under the Öresund bridge but everybody refused to look into the camera but me.

Great picture, Johan

A good candidate for the ongoing "Photographing the fun of sailing" competition? (I am still considering which photo to pick as I am a bit intimidated by the competitionEmbarrassed).

And welcome to Copenhagen. I guess you are up for a tight schedule of metropolitan sightseeing before Emilia is moving further to the North - unless of course you have seen it all alreadyWink.

Begs the question Johan:

How do you and Ole communicate? Semaphore, Sign Language or maybe Hanseperanto?????

Erhh, Frank - It is a kind of Hanseperanto... I thinkLOL

You know, you just have to add a little myhanse tech lingo here and there then everythings seems to work allright (or is Johan only being too modest??).

We were sailing the waters of Skåne, but none of us really speaks the local language and I stubbornly refuse to speak English too a SwedeWink Luckily, both Christel and Isabel seem to understand Danish quite well.

I just nodded politely when Ole talked. It seemed to work.

It must be much easier for someone from southern Sweden to understand Danish than for us from Stockholm as we don't hear a lot of Danish spoken there.

We however had a wonderful time in company with the Amani people and any linguistic bumps in the road were soon straightened out. It was fascinating to see both boat's kids playing and communicating with each other in their own languages.

Emilia is now in Långedrag in Gothenburg after a nice beam reach. Today's captain/helmswoman choose to sail under the jib only but the trip was fast anyway.

On our way to Långedrag we spotted another 342 and I took some pictures in case it would be another myHanse member. Below is one of the pictures. It was evident that sailing with the main only is faster than sailing with the jib only. We however moored in the berth next to them and had a nice chat.

On our way out from the harbour two days later we met a 370 that greeted us and said that they followed us on the internet. I believe they meant this thread. I am glad to hear that at least someone reads this.

Today we decided to stay in the harbour due to strong winds. We are getting a bit fed up with strong winds, actually. And they are cold, too. Yesterday's light winds were much nicer.

'Och ner på Öckerö finns

I am very familiar with Evert Taube as I sang his music during a period in my life and also received a scholarship called "Gösta Taubes stipendium". (Gösta Taube was Evert's brother.) It was handed over to me at a ceremony in Gothenburg and it was then I came to understand the people on the west coast think he belongs to them and that they don't accept the fact the he also lived in Stockholm for a great part of his life.

They would not allow me to sing "Calle Schewens vals" as it takes place on an island in the Archipelago of Stockholm (Håtö svansar). They told me to sing "Fritiof i Arkadien" were one the phrases is "en pilgrim från det fjärran Göteborg".

Hi Johan,

I was in the middle of Stockholm, Wasahamnen, in Juni with Hanse Burgee up, but no Swedish Hanse Skipper paid attention.

I chatted with, the Brancen in Wasahamnet. I asked whether he is renting the area from  city and running the guestharbour there, but he said he has established the harbour decades ago and actually owns the place including the piece land. He told also about his years with boats when he was still saling. He must be famous man in Sweden.

Best Regards
Kari


Posted By: Johan Hackman
Date Posted: 19 July 2012 at 20:45
Kari, as I live in Stockholm I don't have a reason to visit Vasahamnen. The only time I did the harbour master was not there. We only went there to go to Skansen where my daughter left her pacifiers (nappar in Swedish) to the cats, a ceremony that made her stop using them.

On my way along the Swedish coast I have met many Hanses. Some I know well and have met, others have greeted me in a friendly way and some have just stared back when I have waved at them. I guess the latter ones are the shy ones I tried to encourage in my first post of this thread.

Is it time for an update? I think so.

Emilia has sailed further north along the Swedish west coast and reached Norway ten days ago. As I had to go back home to Sweden for work we left her in the first Norwegian harbour that we found that would be safe to leave her for a a week. The choice was the very nice town Fredrikstad. The picture shows us enjoying the nice evening presented to us when we returned.

So from now on it is the Norwegian Hanse sailors that have to sharpen up and greet us on the water and stop by for a chat when you meet us in a harbour. And do not worry, we speak "svorsk" fluently.

More pictures? I have not made myself know for posting any pictures, have I? Well, here is a picture anyway.

After a ten day break we headed west from Fredrikstad and had some fairly strong winds when tacking to Stavern. Two reefs in the main made for a nice sail. I however think that today was the windiest day with the highest waves so far this season.

Christel ducks for a stray wave but I am still not sure that she wants to trade the unobstructed view you get without a sprayhood for the shelter. After all, you are out there to meet the elements, aren't you?

Good to hear that everything was allright on Emilia when you returned. And wow, it really does look windy on those picturesShocked.

BTW, Amani was on a considerably more limited move this past week (confined to the Öresund) as our holidays are running out. But even in the sound we had a small taste of windy conditions as we were surprised by winds gusting 26 knots just north of Landskrona.

Looking forward to hearing more.

The wind was between 9 and 11 metres per seconds which is equal to 18 to 22 knots and, I believe, a Force 5. In my country the weather forcast is in metres per second so that is what I am used to.

Today we had the same wind, still on the nose. We were actually hoping for a little less since beating to windward in strong winds and high seas can make you very tired. The forecast missed a bit there though.

Now, in order to get some more comfortable sailing we decided to hoist the http://www.myhanse.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3059&PID=52285&#52285" rel="nofollow - storm jib we bought a few years ago. This was as bad a decision as the the decision to buy it.

I made a small mistake when hoisting it which made the two halves of the sail that are supposed to be wrapped around the furled jib ending up on the same side and all of sudden I had a life threatening sail that I could not drop flogging across the foredeck. The top of the sail got stuck around the furled jib and with the wind it was completely locked half way up the the jib. I am convinced that you would not be able to drop the sail in a strong wind even if you happened to hoist it perfectly according to the user's manual. And who does that the first time?

Me and my brave wife spent an hour (!) on the fore deck before we managed to get it down while the boat was drifting towards the shore.

I am telling you this not because I made a small mistake but to warn you that this sail is downright dangerous. I doubt that the sail maker ever tested it before they talked me into buying it. They will hear from me.

Completely exhausted we decided to seek a nearer harbour than the intended and ended up in the very nice cove called "Paradisbukta" seen in the picture below.

There are so many lovely places in Norway, we spend times there in summer (sailing) and winter (skiing).

Paradisbukta (Paradice bay) seems a well choosen name under the circumstances!

Glad you reached a safe harbour after that experience with the storm jibShocked In fact, I think most of us could actually do without a storm jib as you could also furl the jib in. (although that might not be as safe as it could accidentally furl out again of course).

BTW, I thought I would post a picture that I took at the island of Ven, as we followed in the foot steps of Emilia the week after you left Öresund. Compare with the foto taken by Johan on page 2 of this threadWink

@Skipper: when we left the harbour this morning I noticed the warning about dangerous waves in the chart you mentioned. I find that intriguing but I was too busy trying to get the storm jib down yesterday to study the chart.

@Ole: it is great to know that you follow in my footsteps. It makes me feel like I am a great adventurer.    I like your picture of Kyrkbacken, too.

Regarding furling the jib in strong winds: the sail shape goes down the drain but it is MUCH better and safer than the sail I bought. Next time I will furl the jib instead of using a sail that is designed to get stuck half way up the fore stay.

A little rain does not stop the Hackmans so we left Paradisbukta after a long breakfast. The wind was nice until it died completely and we had to motor (!) the last five or so miles to Risör.

Isabel could not find the hood for her rain coat so she wore her "sun hat" instead. We did not see much of the sun today.

If you enter Norway from Sweden you will find a coast that basically is directed in the SW direction. For normal family cruising it takes, let's say, five days to sail along that part of the Norwegian coast. We did it in five days and what winds do you think we had? SW, of course! Everyday except one when someone threw buckets of water at us from above. It is a good thing that Hanses come with a selftacking jib and that we have got high quality rain clothes.

The wind is now changing direction, as is the Norwegian coast. We are currently in Kristiansand.

Hi Johan

Well, vinds from SW / W are the most common where you are now.

According to my favorite DMI site, the wind will be lighter today. Tommorow it will turn NE /E and increase to about 8-11 m/sek in your tail.Big smile

After that it actually seems that the wind will turn W and even NW as you approach the southern tip of Norway......hhmm not really fairCry (But that may change of course).

(Take a look at DMI Ocean Forecast. You can se how the wind changes in your area by 1 hour intervals).

I am ready to write the last chapter about this year's summer cruise.

Looking at the weather forecast, we tried to cheat the weather gods by making a long leg the only day we would have the wind from behind so yesterday we decided to sail all the way from Mandal to Egersund. The weather gods however were quick to change their plans and sent a strong wind on the nose at us - plus a heavy rain that lasted all day. (Any sane boat owner would consider selling his boat a few times during a day like this.)

We arrived in Egersund in the dark and were met up by a friend in his Dufour 34 at the Skarvøya lighthouse. Fate has it that we made friends through myHanse even if he sails a Dufour.

Emilia is going to spend the winter in Egersund. Somewhere along our trip we made the decision not to "go back the same way we came". It was a hard decision to make as we are used to off-season sailing in Stockholm and spending weekends aboard when she is covered in snow. Instead I will fly over to Egersund frequently and next year we have a new exciting summer cruise to look forward to.

Johan,
I am still surpriced that you have a crew when sailing in these weather conditions without a sprayhood.... Lot of "sisu" I assume.
 
I hope you are updated with the Norweigans custom roles, remember the sailor who should pay VAT after he had left the boat in Norway for too long time over the winter. I think there has been changes in these roles but a friendly hint is to check with the custom authorities and get there response in writing just in case they next year says something else.

Thank you for sharing with us your wonderful trip!!!

 

I agree with Skipper here, do get in touch with the Norwegian custom authorities to apply for permission to leave your boat in Norway for a year without paying tolls.

Bravo, Johan, Christel, Isabel and StampeClap

What a fantastic cruise and thanks for sharing all the great moments and pictures. It really has been so inspiring. I hope you will be able to "survive" without having Emilia readily available for such a long time.

I am already looking forward to following your trip back to Stockholm next season. When do you expect to start - or haven't you planned yet?

Regarding the sprayhood: we spent the money on good foul weather gear that has built-in sprayhoods. It is well worth the money.

Thank you for posting those links. I am already aware of this problem and the documents are ready to be mailed to the Norwegian customs.

When it comes to next summer we keep the same approach as we did this summer: the best plan is no plan. I don't even promise that I will keep you posted but there is a slight chance that I will resurrect this thread next year.

And by the way, the trip from Stockholm to Egersund was 1019M (measured in the paper chart with a pair of dividers). We sailed 956M and motored 63M. We used the gennaker for 1 (!) hour. Most of the time we have been tacking and the heater has been running every night except three.

And just because my boat is no longer ten minutes walk away from my house does not mean that I am not up for some "off-season sailing". Today's picture shows Emilia sailing out on the North Sea (only to return after a couple of miles) accompanied with a little rain and hail and various wind conditions.

BTW, a couple of weeks ago I got the chance to revisit one of the destinations that Emilia visited while she was on the move this summer.

Kyrckbacken on the island of Hven (notice how empty the harbour is compared to when Emilia was there. See Johans picture from the exact same spot earlier in this thread).

I notice that the boats are all moored bow to in Sweden and Norway. In the Med, the practice is to moor stern to which gives easy access to the pier, pontoon or jetty.

Any reason for that? Is the depth perhaps shallower nearer the pontoon?

I have also noticed that when anchoring out the custom is to use an anchor at the stern and to secure the bow somewhere on land. Again this is opposite to the way it is normally done in the Med. A depth issue perhaps?

It is definitely a depth issue. Perhaps the harbour in Ole's picture was built for fishing boats lying alongside the quay but since it was converted to a leisure boat harbour I am sure no one would make the effort or spend the money to make sure it is deep enough for the rudders of modern sailing yachts.

As there is no tide in Sweden or Denmark the use of pontoons is just a cost effective way to arrange moorings. It has nothing to do with tidal heights.

Then when you moor to a rock in the archipelago (look at the first few pages of this thread) you definitely do not want to moor with the rudder against the rock. In fact, the Hanses are considered difficult boats as the bow has no overhang and many owners fit a bow sprit in order to be able to walk ashore.

Emilia yesterday, moored the "Med way":

Hi Johan
 
Your boat moored the Med way just looks right to me. It does have a downside though and that is that you "need"a passerelle which has to be stored somewhere. I would be happy doing without one but I wouldn't be too popular with the "crew" LOL
 
Still flying the flag I see.

If I had not been used to off-season sailing I would probably have reacted to the fact that the air temperature was only three degrees Celsius.

It is exciting to keep your boat in a place you are not used to. As my boat is my second home I am learning to live in a completely new area. We don't see fishing boats like the one below in Stockholm.

Well, Johan. You are close to the North Sea and the North Atlantic. That's where the big fishing vessels go. The one in the picture certainly seems to be one big monster!

I expect that your present harbour wll stay ice free for much longer than your home harbour in Stockholm. Do you think there is a chance that it will actually stay ice free the whole year round?

As for mooring with the bow poiting to the jetty. I have also wonder we always do that. I guess you are right that is has to do with the depth and that there is often more shallow water under the bridge, but we seem do it every time regardless. It simply has become a habitEmbarrassed

Maybe I should try, the Med Way some day?

Ole, there will be no ice during the winter since the harbour is located where a river flows into the sea. Furthermore, the water is hence sweet so probably there will be less corrosion on skin fittings etc.

As you have the short rudder you can probably go on and try to moor the Med way. Let us know if the rudder gets any shorter from your experiments.

Sadly not a sailing picture as it was too cold to put the sails back after maintenance. The ropes have simply frozen. I had to fill up the diesel tank in order to run the heater and took the opportunity to motor for an hour in the sunny weather with my Norwegian friend.

If I am correctly informed they don't get much snow in this area but since I moved my boat over here, snow falls here too as can be seen on the deck.

Johan,

Your pictures and text are always a delight, especially this time of the year.  Legacy is on the hard, as is our custom, and I am missing her more than I can express.  Fortunately, I will be heading to the southern part of the US in January and will be able to sail on others boats while there.  But when April returns there will be real joy in launching Legacy again. I'm especially excited this year since I will be fairing her hull, keel and rudder in the spring and taking delivery of a new 155 genoa and a new mainsail.  Additionally, the asymetrical spinnaker (which always appeared short to me) will have been modified by lengthening 4'.

Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to all.

Hi Johan

Great picture and what a lovely weather. I think you are forgiven for not hoisting the sails considering the wind conditions.Wink

Egersund really looks like a very nice place indeed.Big smile

BTW (even if the local waters are ice free year round) do you consider winterizing the engine. I would guess the temperatures could go way below zero? Or will the water keep the inside of the boat warm enough including the engine?).

Ole, I find your post a bit contradictory. First you forgive me for using the engine, then you tell me to winterize it. How can I motor during the winter if the engine is winterized?

My trip to Egersund was not a planned one, but when I read on Monday that temperatures were going down to -13 degrees Celsius I decided to take the next plane to make sure everything was alright.

I never winterize the engine nor the the water system since I am using my boat throughout the winter. But I agree with those who think I am crazy that it is better to keep you boat in the living room by the television during the cold period.

Great pic! To prepare her for cold winters just close the seacoock, start the engine and poure antifreeze into the seawater filter. Only takes a few minutes and gives peace of mind when you are not in the boat. Make sure to empty all the freshwater -it will freeze.

Johan, that was exactly what I meant. How can you do without securing the motor and the freshwater system, when the temperature drops to minus 13 degrees Celcius? Wink

If I am not mistaken you usually take all sorts of precautions (short of storing Emilia in your living roomLOL).... e.g. using a heater, buble system in the water around the boat etc.

I agree with seileren. You could simply run some motor coolant through the system via the seawater filter. And maybe pour some propylene glycol into the fresh water tank and pump it out through the cranes. (Or you could use whisky for that purposeWink).

Fantastic picture, again. I am getting tempted to check out Egersund some day. It seem like a great place!

Oack! Imagine how that water would taste!

No, I am using both the water system and the engine throughout the winter so I cannot winterize them. The boat is heated up inside to prevent the engine and the water system from freezing. I am not saying that there is no risk in this. I only say "no pain, no gain".

I could use my expensive camera as an example. I have had to pay a price for some of the pictures in this thread. The camera frequently malfunctions because of what it has gone through. Other people would put it inside the boat and not in the cockpit when they are sailing but they would get fewer exiting pictures.

No pain no gain...I kind of like that approachLOL

In fact, propylene glycol doesn't taste of anything, but I get your point. It is probably not a good idea, if you plan to use the boat regularly over the winter. But, then there is always the whisky optionLOL

(With the heater on the risk is probaly minimal).

BTW, please keep testing that Nikon (was it?) to the limit!!

This is going to be a little off-topic.

Yes, I am a Nikon guy these days. My first camera was a Minolta SRT-101 which my parents bought to take pictures of my birth. The film somehow gut stuck inside the camera so there are no pictures from the event. I later got the camera as a birthday present and I used it in my late teens. It is still in mint condition but I no longer use it as it is analogue.

I picked up photography again when Minolta released their first DSLR, the Dynax 7D. It is a brilliant camera and half of my pictures on myHanse are taken with that camera. I even took pictures of my daughter's birth (the five-year-old in the picture holding the cameras) but won't show any of them here. The pictures made it to a nice photo book that we keep on the book shelf though.

When Minolta, that had become Konica-Minolta when I bought the 7D, became Sony I decided to go Nikon and that's where you'll find me today. My Konica-Minolta did not like the North Sea when I crossed it with a friend in 2008 and stops working when it gets damp. My Nikon has been through a lot of rain but it seems the salt of Skagerack and the North Sea in 2012 has gotten to it. I sometimes have to remove the battery to make it work.

Yesterday saw the start of the new season. And as you can see, there is a new helmsman aboard. At 5 1/2 years she tacks perfectly when I tell her to.

I was told that winter in Egersund is rainy with a temperature around five degrees. Unfortunately, this winter has been extremely cold with temperatures down to minus ten and ice in the harbour. It means that I have not been able to sail in January and February like I hoped but I am happy that the first sail took place at least a month before it will be possible in Stockholm.



This time the first sail did not take place in the sheltered water of lake Mälaren as Isabel and I ventured out on the North Sea. The temperature was 5 degrees and the wind was 15 knots from West.

Johan

PS. Another first-sail-of-the-season: http://www.myhanse.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3866&KW=ice+lunch&PID=30430&title=shaking-the-dust-from-the-sails#30430" rel="nofollow - http://www.myhanse.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3866&KW=ice+lunch&PID=30430&title=shaking-the-dust-from-the-sails#30430 .
