The Journeyman will be heading back towards home (in Stockholm, Sweden) early this summer, probably late May or early June.

Drop me a line on jesper@journeyman.se if you are interested in coming along from Portugal or other parts of the journey.

An approximate rote is first leg from Figueira da Foz to Channels Islands, probably St Peter Port on Guernsey, then on to Cuxhafen and the Kiel canal, and then to Ystad in Sweden. Depending on the wishes of the crew we might make other stops along the way.

Well folks, it’s time for a little break. Almost 10 000 NM in the last six months. We have safely arrived in Tenerife, and the Journeyman will get a bit of a rest while I tend to other matters. This will mean a bit of a break in the blogging too, I am afraid.

OK, so we’re off the coast of Mauretania. It’s early June. And I’m doing my shifts dressed in thick fleece under full foul weather gear, with gloves and a hat on. We have a very chilly feeling 17°C!!! Is it supposed to be like this?

As tradition will have it, every one in the crew passed strenuous tests in order to qualify for entry into the Kingdom of Neptune. This time, due to the level of sweat and saltwater everyone is covered with, the test was to wash your hair Neptune style. Now we are home. In the Northern hemisphere.
