Kalmar left behind about 9:30. Taking advantage of the exceptional wind prognosis for weak N and later E, Selina's nose is pointing towards Mörbylånga in Öland. Going wing on wing. Landed at 12:30 after sunny relaxed sail.

Sunrise sail to Kalmar

Maukka and Pia wake up at 2 in the morning to take advantage of the rare west wind window, an exception from the dominant SW, Welcome when going to Kalmar which ilues directly towards SW. Sails hoisted at 3:30, dreamwind W 7 m/s. Listening to Debussy. Now L'isle joyeux, next La Mer. Sunrise at 4. New genoa driving beautifully. Slottsbredan light and Borgholm on port side at 8:15. Morning espresso II cooking. Kalmar bridge 9:30. Arrived to Kalmar at 10.


Furö left at 11 in the sunny conditions of SW. New genoa driving nicely up wind. 12:00 Blå Jungfru on the port side. Sandvik 15:45 after a nice cruise with the  new genoa, which is perfect! The little harbor, turns out to be very cozy, with all basics plus no less three restaurants. The only issue on high season is that most of the moorings are oriented sidewinds, and that the prewailing SW seas will rock the boats near the entrance. Wonderful pebble and limestone tile beaches. Lots of amazing fossils.


The pleasant harbour of Oskarshamn was left behind at 14:15 and the short flight to the island of Furö was completed  by 15:45. The weather was sunny and the wind behind. Furö is a pearl second to none, but with mooring for just two maybe three boats.   We were the second one in addition to the German boat whis crew included a 50 year old parrot. A perfect hideaway. No services, just private cottages.


In Stockholm, The captain found a used genoa for sale in the internet that was made for a boat with a rig similar enough to that of Scanmar 345. Luckiily enough the owner even lived close by. The only sorrow the captain felt was that luff was slightly shorter than what was supposed to fit to the furler. The sail turned out to be just like new, great triradial cut, contemporary laminate construction. It was a deal, no question! On Friday the 17th Maukka and Pia drove from Stockholm back to Oskarshamn with the new genoa in the trunk. The little Peugeot was useful also to carry all the food. On Saturday the old well served red stripe genoa was unfurled and taken down for the last time. The new one was hoisted and to the captain's surprise neither the luff was no centimeter short nor the foot none too long, in other words it was perfect, just like tailored for the Selina! Obviously the boat's dimensions were not in accord with the specs, but the error was the lucky way! The center
