The Voyage of 'S/V Röde Orm' - Sweden

Come on board and take part in our adventures while exploring the world at the slow pace of a sailing boat. We left in June 2009, heading south to escape the northern winter... to start with. Currently in Algarve/Portugal taking it one day at a time.

'Old Hag Skerry'

16 September 2008 | Kringskret N 57 29,9 E 1643,9
A busy morning. It took us over two hours and several tours in the dinghy to set the anchor furhter away from the boat. Slowly warping us meter by meter toward the same way we entered this cove. Actually it took all 30 horse powers of our new engine combined with working the windlass to make this 'Great escape' happen.

Thank God it worked! It would have been a bit embarrassing to call for help on the VHF in a situation like this.

No harm done, we were under way again and went further south to; yes... yet another of my favourite anchorages, The Old Hag Skerry.

We arrived here an hour before sunset. Just enough to let us explore the skerry from the dinghy and then for me to scrape the growth off from Rde Orm's under water body. Not much antifoul paint left there, three years in the water has taken it's toll and the boat is due for an outhaul.

The pic shows Staffan and me picking 'slnbr' -the ones used to flavour vodka.
