Still out here in the north Atlantic. A sever low pressure system approaches from the west and we have prepared Kulla for storm conditions. Our course is now set to due east and we have to keep this course until this weather system has past us, probably Sunday or Monday. Kullas school has a "storm vacation" so the two pupils now have lot's of time to read books and do other kind of activities. The yachts movement in the high seas makes crawling a lot easier than walking around onboard.
Never mind, these kind of days are easily forgotten when the wind shifts to better weather again.
All well onboard!

The English Channel.
A low pressure system over Ireland and western part of great Britain makes the weather a little bit miserable.
On Sunday the 28 th of June, my brother Lars, got a telephone call from some old Kiwi friends of us, and then later the same day we could make radio contact with Anne-Marie and Paul on sailing Yacht Harlequin. Their suggestion that we should pop bye when we passed Pool in south England, was met very positively among the crew hear onboard Kulla so the decision was simple.
Now, Tuesday morning, we are battling against inshore fishing boats on our way to a steak dinner in England tomorrow, and off course, a couple of beers at the local pub.
19 days to go to our Homeport Vaesteraas in the lake of Maelaren!
