The Last Mile
August 11, 2005
Christof joined me on this very special trip of the bay.
It's the last trip on 'Solstice'.
Check the old photos from The First Mile
Last chance to climb that mast.
The boat was rocking heavily during this excercise - a halyard got caught at the top of the mast while we tried to set sail.

A warm afternoon, with average wind and rather big waves.
Christof reduces the main sail area
Alright, all set now!
enjoying one of life's good moments
Heading back in, less wind now. As usual. As with most sailing I've done on 'Solstice' the past 4 years - not much changes.
sails come down
Back to the same old dock...
The next day preparation for showing the boat:
Folding the jib neatly.
give the cabin a proper cleaning
Lastly - the Swedish flag comes down.
This photo, from two days later, shows the new owners sailing away...
