Between us we have visited, Maui, Gran Canaria, Cabo Verde, Western-Australia, South-Africa and many other places so I think we got something to compare with.

Thunder & lightening on Larkollen

We got two more days of sailing on Larkollen this week. Monday afternoon I sail with my 5,3m2 for a couple of hours in a lot of chop. But the weather was nice.

On wedensday we had a lot of rain with thunder & lightening striking close by just as I arrived. The thunder disapeard after a couple of big bangs and the sun started shining again, for a while............ The wind and waves where a lot better and I sailed with my 5,0m2 until it started raining again for a short while. After a couple of minutes on the beach, the sun and wind came back and so the evening went on. Wind, sun and rain, over and over again until I packed up my gear about 8.30. Offcourse in pouring rain.

Great day in Varberg

Jørgen, Thomas and my self went for a weekend tripp to Varberg in Sweden, just about 430 km south of Oslo. The forcast promissed 10 m/s from west and sunny weather on saturday.
And we hit the jackpot with almost 5 hours of delicius 5,3m2 sailing in the waves in one of our favourite beaches in Scandinavia. In the afternoon we had a classic meal at our favourite restaurant in Varberg, John's Place, located in the Apelbay.
Sunday delivered only a lot of rain with some wind, the promissed 11-14 m/s never arrived while we where there. We left around 2 o'clock and I'm pretty sure the wind arrived 15 minuttes later, as usually
PS, The actionpicture shows Thomas with his fin out of the water!
