Back to Sweden and Hamburgsund

The weather forecast promised headwinds the coming days so we decided to go directly back home to Hamburgsund. After some provisioning at the mall in Farsund we motored out of the harbour and after an hour we set sail and had good sailing the first couple of hours.

Then it was motor sailing and when the wind picked up we could turn off the engine and when the wind decreased we motor sailed again. In the evening the wind turned more south-Westerly and we took down the mainsail and continued with just the code.

Preparing the code

When we approached Väderöarna the wind increased and we changed from code to jib.

We arrived at our slip in Hamburgsund 20 minutes past 4 pm. We did not sleep much on the way so we were quite tired.

Sailed distance 154,5 nautical miles.
