Hello Mr Blue Sky and the Friendly CowsNichola

This is our second night at anchor off the south eastern tip of Femo in the 'Smalands Farvandet' area of Denmark. Another lovely sunny day with blue skies. We are anchored in about 3.5m of water and can easily see the bottom. Shame there are jellyfish about otherwise a chilly swim might have been had.
Anchored in Zanzibar...sort of!Skip

Well, we've had the first barbeque of the season last night. We are due today to head off to the island of Femo, but currently the wind is gusting to a force 7 in the lee of the island we are currently on. This is ok as we'll be running downwind, and will probably only use a scrap of genny to power the boat up. Once we get 'around the corner' of Femo we'll get everything squared away and motor up to the new anchorage. This is mainly to use the engine heat to generate some hot water for crew showers later. That is of course if we decide to brave the gusts! As we are in no rush we may well stay, and save ourselves the beasting! I'll try and post this now if I can get the radio to work. I'd also like to pick up some GRIB files for weather but am unsure if I can if I'm able to connect. So far this morning I've been unable to get a connection, but don't know if that is because I've made a mistake and done something wrong in my set up, or if the wl2k radio group has blocked my callsign... all very strange, or is it the atmospherics? I'll give it a go.
