Ökande vind

Adios Gran Canaria

Dag 1, söndag 20/11
Blåsorkestern spelar vad någon så träffande kallar ”grisfestmusik”, kajen full av människor, hamninloppet fullt av båtar – både de som ska delta och de som bara vill vinka. Alla vinkar åt alla, kameror i allas händer. Starten blir lugn och vi har en lite inledande kappsegling mellan båtarna i cruisingklassen. Startföljet tunnas ut och mot eftermiddagens slut viker eskadern av åt olika håll beroende på val av rutt.
Vi har enats om en segling som troligtvis ger lite lugnare väder – vi går söderut mot Kap Verde. Gennakern är satt och farten den ger är förvånansvärt hög. Både vind och vågor är nådiga, och farten god.
Första nattens hundvakt, midnatt till klockan fyra på morgonen, gör mitt vaktlag. Det är en mycket speciell upplevelse att segla i nästan totalt mörker. AIS:en blir viktig för att upptäcka andra båtar, och jag märker att mina kunskaper om lanternföring i stort försvunnit sedan skepparexamen. Halvmånen tittar periodvis fram mellan molnen och havet blir overkligt vackert. Att styra segelbåt på natten enbart med hjälp av instrument visar sig oväntat svårt, även den känsliga gennakern vållar mig problem. Sover faktiskt några timmar i en lutande båt med smällande tampar och knakande skrov.

Dag 2, måndag 21/11
Vaknar vid 9-tiden till ett mycket stillsamt hav. Det är varmt och mycket svaga vindar. Vi jobbar med trimning av gennaker och storsegel för att hålla fart, men det går långsamt idag. Vi får delfinsällskap på eftermiddagen – en stor flock leker länge kring båten. Sen eftermiddag gippar vi och får lite bättre vind, vi gör 7-8 knop vilket är den medelfart vi måste hålla för att resan ska ta de 16 dagar vi hoppas. Eftermiddags- plus sen kvällsvakt idag – ännu en mörkersegling, med tidvis stiltje, tidvis friskare vindar.

Dag 3, tisdag 22/11
Vaknar ur en halvslummer av ett våldsamt skramlande i salongen. Tar mig upp i en våldsamt krängande båt och förstår att nu går innehållet i slarvigt säkrade skåp i golvet. Vinden, och våghöjden, har ökat rejält. Vi kommer in i ett bälte av squalls – små oväder, med starka, byiga vindar som i värsta fall når stormstyrka – och det blir ett mycket avancerat företag att röra sig i och på båten. Våghöjden ökar snabbt till ca 6 m och vi är ständigt säkrade med säkerhetslina i sittbrunnen. Att resa sig ur soffan i salongen för att ta sig fram till diskbänken kräver planering och fysisk styrka. Korta vaktpasset 18-20 blir en prövning i mörker, men också mäktigt. Känner mig fullständigt trygg i båten, trots att vatten reser väggar runt mig, och horisonten försvunnit bakom enorma vågkammar. Min efterlängtade 8-timmmarsvila blir orolig i den rullande, sjungande båten – jag sover inte mycket. Min kropp är fysisk mycket påverkad redan, jag har mjölksyra i ben och armar och en stickande trötthet i varenda muskel. Att bära räddningsväst och säkerhetslina, som tillsammans väger 3 kilo, är bara det en bokstavlig börda. Att röra sig på båten kräver nu planering och ork.

  1. And the last point is likely the entire reason this thing exists: it’s in 5.56mm. The P90 is easy to adopt when you’re the Secret Service, but the military? I doubt any PDW not in 5.56 will see limited use at best. I’ve see people say that the next main rifle caliber change will be to lasers. Personally, I would love to see them keep 5.56 for PDWs and go to 6.8, 6.5 or .300 Blackout (assuming they can get supplies of .300 Blackout).

  3. “In the face of what appears to be a looming threat of cultural hybridization, Aria provides a vision of a world that goes into the stars, but is still essentially Japanese.”That interpretation actually makes a lot of sense to me. One thing that always nagged me about watching ARIA was “why bother setting it on Mars? All the locations and highlights are essentially a reconstruction of Venice anyway, so why not set the story in Venice?” to which the answer is that it allows the author to take the romantic elements of Venice but present them in a fictional way that is accessible to the target audience – modern Japanese people.

  4. Maisey, I love how this story played out. You knew what you had and you stood behind it, and now the whole world will get to fall in love with your cowboys! Congratulations again on the triple sale, and I can’t wait to read them in pretty (ahem, HOT cowboy) covers

  5. I agree. It really adds to the whole Whedon cult thing, too. Once he finds an actor/writer/directer/etc he likes, the fandom sort of latches on to them ,too. I started watching Lost because of David Fury, BSG and Warehouse 13 because of Jane Espenson, Castle because of Nathan Fillion, and countless other shows simply because they had a Whedon alum

  6. Куплю Volkswagen Polo седан (Tredline или Comfortline), либо очередь на данный авто в Санкт-Петербурге и ЛО. звоните 8-981-894-06-20, 8-953-348-25-20

  7. I love my Aerus bike bag. I’ve had it 2 years and have flown with it about 20 times. Only been charged 1 time. I think checking in online before you get to the airport is key. A lot of times airline reps won’t even handle your bags, they have contract people do it. And those guys don’t care about fees. Plus with all the extra stuff I can put in my bag I usually get away with just a carry on (even for a 10 day trip) in addition to the bike bag. Saving even more money.

  8. Horacio, As co-owner of SpeedPPC, I recommend that you do NOT buy SpeedPPC, or at least not yet. It won’t provide you with the basic training you need. A good book to get you started with PPC marketing is Perry Marshall’s Definitive Guide to AdWords.For you, getting SpeedPPC would be a bit like investing in a Porsche when you haven’t learned how to ride a bike and don’t know the road rules.

  9. a couple things. 1. nice editing. but, how long would it take to brighten it up and increase the contrast? in other words, it’s good video, but it’s dark. only takes a minute to fix that2. this video was uploaded march of 09. and it has just over 4000 views in June 2011. not greatif you want good video and more views, talk to me

  10. Ornicar, cela dit quelque chose sur votre connaissance des volumes de BD signés par ces auteurs et que vous avanciez pour suggérer que les autres commentateurs sont tous des incultes. Cela dit aussi des choses sur la manière par laquelle vous vous adressez aux gens qui écrivent dans ce blogue et qui n’en pensent pas moins.

  11. Το να γίνεται αμείλικτος πόλεμος στο ευρώ δεν παίζει;Και εμείς να πληρώνουμε τις επιπτώσεις;Πώς εξηγούνται οι κινήσεις της Αγγλίας;Ωχ! ΤΏΡΑ ΤΙ ΚΆΝΟΥΜΕ;Πάντως όσοι έλεγαν ότι ο ΓΑΠ ήλθε επί τούτου ίσως δικαιωθούν, σύντομα.

  12. & Sephiroth gets a (dis)honorable mention also. I know many people that took over ten tries trying to beat him in the last disc, final form. ^^^ What? He was easy as hell. All that leveling up for nothing. The final form all you have to do is push your limit break and it automatically beats him and the next to last, you do Knights Of The Round 4x and it’s over.——–Hey man, I was only 9 when I first played this game LOL

  13. Ein wunderbarer Grund sich mal wieder (durchaus etwas verschämt) blicken zu lassen!Mit den drei Alben ist das eine ziemlich schwere Sache. Irgendwie wie immer. Drei durchaus sehr Verschiedene, mir aber alle ans Herz gewachsene sind folgende:1. 65dos – We are exploding anyway…2. Butterfly Explosion – Lost Trails3. Her name is calla – Quiet lambLiebe Schneegrüße den unbeirrbaren Schallgrenzenpeter und all seine Recken und Jünger

  14. C’est l’évolution qui veut ça, de la à dire que c’est voulu, il n’y a qu’un pas. Après avec le temps, il recevra un portage stable et fonctionnel qui comme par magie tournera tel une horloge on est habitués maintenant.

  15. Wow, marvelous blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is fantastic, let alone the content!. Thanks For Your article about Florestan Fernandes: marxismo, ciência e revolução | marxismo21 .

  16. about my name. Roonil Wazlib was written inside Ron’s Potions textbook because his Spellcheck Quill started malfunctioning, so he ended up misspelling his own name, the poor thing. Later, Snape asked for all of Harry’s textbooks after he attacked Malfoy in the bathroom (in the 6th book), and Harry couldn’t hand over his own (because it has the Half-Blood Prince’s notes all over it) and remedied by grabbing Ron’s instead.:)

  17. “humility” – “gentleness” – Both of those words describe what I see you embracing and sharing with me in our relationship, and it helps me feel “safe” to do the same with you sister… Thank you for being such a beautiful light in this world.

  18. Best to go with a Reputable Land Management Company…they know all the Ins and Outs and little tricks some people will pull to get over on you…Bad Renters know ALL the little twists of how to get something for nothing! Believe me my Mom dealt with it for many years before she turned it all over to a Company. DO NOT COUNT ON RENTERS TO PAY ON TIME…THEY GENERALLY DON’T, Always have money set aside for your Mortgage.

  19. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many thanks

  20. thanks for the Corian info – I am keen to go with Corian in my new kitchen as I love the look and feel of the surface – but is it practical ? I’m worried about stains and scratches so would like to hear from anyone who has had this surface in their kitchen for over 5 years or so – are they still happy ?

  21. Wow this is such a Wonderful creation, the image is adorable and coloured so beautifully its just perfect for our Anything Goes challengeThank you so much for joining us at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and we hope to see you next week,Good Luck with the challengeand a happy and healthy 2012,Hugs Bridget :0) x SCSC DT

  22. 1. Justin Bieber tá tão boneca que dá medo encarar o olho dele.2. Kellan Lutz tem cara de mendigo.3. Tenho uma calça IGUALZINHA a do Cory Monteith.4. Joe Jonas é tipo o Dr. Ray versão bonito mas não menos passiva.5. Ashton tava mais bem vestido que todos na lista.Sincerizei.

  23. Szia!Nagyon jó lett a fejezet :DVégre valaki megkereste Claut, remélem, hogy Tom inkább lép, és megkeresi. :)Na, most csak ennyit tudok írni, mert fél óra múlva suliban kell lennem, én meg gép elÅ‘tt ülök xDVárom a kövit :)PusziJa, és király lett az új dizi 😀

  24. You’re so awesome! I don’t think I’ve read a single thing like that before. So great to discover another person with a few genuine thoughts on this topic. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something that’s needed on the web, someone with a bit of originality!

  25. comentou em 7 de julho de 2012 às 09:51. eu sou normal, mas acho que essa “normal girl” tá fazendo mta força, viu? nunca fazer a unha, comprar bolsa pela praticidade?!?!menas, filha!ainda não te encontrei, nem entre as minhas amigas, nem entre as amigas da minhas mãe, nem entre as amigas das minhas vizinhas, nem na escola, ou no trabalho!quem sabe nas cavernas do afeganistão!

  26. Wow, that's pretty impressive. Congratulations. I can't say I've ever pulled it off or that I know anyone else who has.Yes, you're right, your university guys German and Derrick beat high school student Murasawa at World XC. You'd have to admit, then, that Murasawa seems to have made an excellent transition to university running with this performance.

  27. Härlig bild på det ensamma bladet som hängt kvar hela vintern.Jag har bara ett litet problem, en del som skriver hos mej har inte öppnat namn och nätadress. Eftersom jag inte har något googelkonto och inte tänker skaffa mej ett heller kan jag inte svara,vilket kan vara lite frustrerande när man skrivit en kommentar;-(Ha en skön helg/Kram

  28. I’ve never done stability ball work. My faves are the jump rope and my heart rate monitor. I have a regular polar for inside exercises and a Garmin for when I take walks.Of course, you can never underestimate the power of a good pair of shoes too. They really can help so much depending on the exercise you are doing.

  29. ”You Conservative yobs really don’t have anything left except to make a shambles, do you?”They are not interested in meangful debate. Their only purpose is to come here and derail discussions. I also think biff’s idea of a good time is to come here and try to get under your skin. Sadly s/he simply is not smart enough to see how very stupid s/he looks.

  30. Plastic medical supplies are like anything, neither inherently good or bad — it’s just in certain contexts — like when they are not recycled or properly disposed of… but the issue will be with scarcity at some point — I vote get rid of Nascar/Grand Prix racing, or at least charge them for the wasteful use of fuel, the polluting fumes and the noise pollution they really costs. Of course, I will be accused of all sorts of things — but I will take those insults to live in a world without cars driving round and round in circles any day.

  31. I must say… I searched for 2 days for a way to parse a xml document, and all I was able to find was tutorials using built-in PHP parser (xml_parser_create()), wich seemed to be too complex for me (me being a newbie with php and OOP). But, now that I found XPath I wonder why is not used more frequently? Is not a default add-on on php/apache? Or, why?

  32. Claro que hay mucho más detrás de todo esto, la tolerancia cero de muchos, y lamentablemente en la educación; ¿qué podemos esperar de un centro educativo como ese?¿Y de las leyes que lo amparan?Desde luego que la libertad es cosa de valientes e inteligentes, y quienes limitan las libertades son desde mi punto de vista: cobardes e ignorantes.Un saludo.
