    Yesterday night the fore deck crew of this pretty interesting boat brought his small camera with him to the monday evening sailrace in Mariefred.

      Some testing before start.




      Perhaps a well known silhouette?

        And we're away!

        Apparently first of all.


        Pretty happy.




        A while later.

        We actually got the first place in the race, and also won the total of the spring series in Mariefred - nice!
        Not too much sailing in Strängnäs this spring, due to that I haven't had my boat in town.

          A pretty crowded basin Västerås during last weeks sailrace.



          I cannot see the sea due to the boats - the sailor said.




          Night impression seen from 'Svea'.


          Someone's apparantly having too much time or money.

            Looks like a perfect weekend on the water.

          It's the season for some Ice sailing again.







          Mostly Ice Optimists on the lake today.

            Did you also get some snow today?

              Awfully nice weather!









              The races were canceled due to a bit restricted sight conditions.


              My gear stacked up at one of the pit-flags. I had to put the bags in my shower for drying...

                Here it's apparently called "Storm Egon". We got about 10cm's of heavy snow, no strong winds (yet).

                Only in the local newspaper who made a reportage about two of the sailors. The video has been featured on some websites too.

              Finally out for taking some pictures again. This weeks feature is the premiere of the Swedish Sailing League.
              Similiar series are already sailed in Germany (http://segelbundesliga.de/) and Denmark (http://sejlsportsligaen.dk/), to be followed by Norway and other countries next year.

              Good opportunities to take great photos. I was sharing boat with the official photographer, so we could basically go anywhere within the race court!

                Some of the photos were a bit tricky to edit. How to preserve the details in the black ares of the picture but still get contrast?

                Keep your hat on!

                Great mix of old and young sailors.

                      WAOW!

                      That video was just amazing. Pretty neat narrow channel navigation.... that boat handler certainly had a been through those narrows once or twice before!
