…I miss this already…

🇸🇪 Kullen Västra Lighthouse 🇸🇪

Soon this adventure will come to its end and I start to miss these moments already. New plans are buzzing around in the head.

Fair winds…

A night under fire…

It was a night under fire and we could see the white, green and red sector at the same time.🧐 Must be one of the many attributes of Torekov, that you can berth that close to a lighthouse. Due to the fact that it was not flashing or blinking we got very decent sleep and are already off again to the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen.

To arrive in the right mood, Ulli, skipper SY Christina, shared a link with us. We are all set now! 😅

Good Night !

…nice to be back…

We were in Torekov 2015 (long before this blog was born) and since then it has become one of our favorite marinas. The service level is excellent and the charm hard to beat. Next time we need to explore the skerry just opposite of the marina entrance, perhaps with our own kayak. I was told it‘s worth it.

Torekov – back in 🇸🇪

The wind was a far below expectations and therefore we fancied a short stop-over in Torekov/Sweden.

On the approach of this cute historical fishing harbour you need to pass Hallands Väderö, a nature reserve and the first skerry heading further North.

Fair winds…


We have started some boat work to get the lady back into shape. Focus is mainly on cleaning and polishing, which was neglected over the last few month. Teak, GRP and stainless steel are our current focus. Perfect weather!

Fair winds…

Käringön again

We decided to hang around a bit longer here on Käringön, one of the skerries, which seems to offer all needed to wind down. We like it.

Fair winds…

Gullholmen for 24h

After a coffee with Lars from SY Ajite (a local HR38 under Swedish flag) we are now throwing the lines to move.

It shall be another sunny late summer day, probably the best time in the year to explore these cruising grounds.

Our final sunset in Ellös.
Starlink installed.

After three days at the Open Yard and Susan‘s arrival we have now left Ellös slowly heading South. We hope for some more good late summer weather to enjoy this remarkable archipelago a bit longer on our journey.

Orust Sailboat Show

HR fleet exhibited 2023 in Ellös.
The all new HR69 under construction.

There are exactly 20 years among these photos, or in other words, we are sailing Hallberg-Rassy for two decades by now. What a fortune and pleasure.

Therefore our visit to Ellös was not only governed by curiosity but also by an anniversary to celebrate.

Our brandnew HR, pick-up in Ellös in 2003.

It was in 2003, when Edith and Horst supported us to take ownership of our first HR34 directly from the yard. At that time both of them became physical crew members during the first couple of days on the maiden miles we did in the archipelago of Orust and they have since then sailed thousands of virtual miles with us across the oceans.

Approximately 15000 tide turns later, we looked at the latest HR models and how the yard developed. The HR69 is becoming an impressive beast in near future. The biggest HR ever build.

We also took the opportunity to meet the HR team, who supported us all the years in the past and in particular during the ongoing Boating & Biking Adventure. It was nice to meet and chat again with Rolf Müller from Lake Konstanz, who sold us the first Hallberg-Rassy and therefore initiated our journey. Where continuity becomes a value. 

I am grateful Susan made it up to Ellös to join us for this anniversary stop-over.
