Windless evening sailing

Absolutely no wind, but a nice sunset over Gressholmen

No point in hoisting sails. Instead we resolved to feed the ducks and enjoyed the the evening ambiance. We were pretty safe too, since almost all 50 meters of chain rumbled out, in a moment of confused communication, in 12 meters of dead calm water.

Two in a row

Coffee break at sunset

After the windless sailing turned sightseeing, a couple of weeks ago, we have had two windy Wednesday-sailing-afternoons in a row. One with more unsteady winds than the other. Mother nature was fiddling frenetically withe the Beaufort knob last Wednesday. A bit more steady winds, sunnier and much nicer this Wednesday.
