Sailing back to the winter place

Today we sailed for five and a half hours to bring our boat back from the summer harbour. Tomorrow we take off the mast and next weekend the boat is lifted by crane onto land. The only thing left to do then is build a roof over the boat which will protect it from the harsh Scandinavian winter weather, I look forward to the spring already. For the record, it was damn cold sailing today, thankfully the sun came out at half time to warm us up a little, I used a gas burner to dry the paper in between washes.

  1. Beatiful sky as always, fantastic sea reflections. wonderful palette and as usual you finding time for painting. A very brave boy.

  2. Thank you setxu! It's not so bad when you get used to it. There are less boats on the water so one can feel all alone which I like a lot.
