I found another blog to follow... Viking Vareo.
It's about another singlehanded sailor who, in some ways, is a lot like me.
He is a Viking... like me. Well actually he probably has a better claim than me to call himself a Viking, even if I did officially change my name to Tillerman Bloodaxe. He lives in Sweden and his name is Per Åkesson. That little circle above the A definitely makes that an authentic Viking name, doesn't it?
He used to sail a Laser, but he says he was never very good at it… like me.
He enjoys sailing a singlehanded boat with an asymmetric spinnaker… like me. Except he actually went and did something about it and bought one.
He sails an RS Vareo… like me. OK. OK. I only sailed a Vareo on vacation but at least it means I can understand what he is writing about and relate to it.
He likes to go off and cruise around in his boat by himself and try to improve his skills. Just like me.
Did I mention we are both Vikings?
Check out Viking Vareo.
