MIDSUMMERS EVE - DYRÖN, SWEDEN
The most Swedish of all holidays, when the sun barely sets and we always dream of sunny weather but often get quite some rain and chilly evenings. 
This year - like a dream among family and friends ☀️30 degrees, first post-Covid traditional dance and festivities, delicious herring and a midnight swim. 
Summer in Sweden is not that bad 🇸🇪💙💛🇸🇪

NEW YORK 🇺🇸🗽🏙
A happy but tired crew left the bustling NYC behind yesterday. What an amazing four days we’ve had and many steps walked during these days. Our three girls are fantastic travel company, even in big cities, and we’ve created yet more memories for life! The girls are certain they will come back 🍎

Again a lot had changed since our last visit and we really enjoyed new developments such as the One world observatory and “park on poles” - Hudson river park. Nicholas’ cousin Rani lives in Brooklyn with her family (and the most amazing rooftop views!!) and gave us the very best guidance and company during our stay 😍🌇

We visited the Liberty island and Ellis island and talked about what a strong symbol for freedom and liberty she is. We discussed the emigration from Sweden and learned that almost 20% of the Swedes born during the later half of the 19th century emigrated to the US. 

The 9/11-museum was nicely curated and as adults we could have spent a lot more time. We found the name of the only Swedish victim of these horrific attacks, who shares our family name but is not related. A white rose is placed every day on the individuals who would’ve celebrated their birthdays 🤍🕊

As an end to our stay, and in some sense also to our family adventure, we celebrated by going to see the Lion King musical, wow! 🦁😍

WASHINGTON DC 🇺🇸🏛
A great experience visiting this centre for politics and policy making that has impact on such a large part of the world. We spent a day here 10 years ago but this time we got  a chance to explore more of the city outside of the iconic buildings and monuments but of course also revisit the sights with the kids. We stayed in the newly developed wharf area which is nicely set on Potomac river. Georgetown was really pitoresque with its rowhouses, stores and canals. 

Washington DC is a great tourist destination and it makes it even more fun to explore as you can jump on the one dollar bus to take you around and then most of the sights and museums are free of charge. Unfortunately Covid restrictions still prevents visits into the congress meeting rooms, but it was still cool to enter the Capitol and take in the air in the corridors and cupole rotunda. 
The four days gave excellent opportunities to go through American and international history, politics, political systems in a pace where the kids maintain interest and focus. 

Today we hit the road again. Passing by Annapolis and the marina and technicians that will take care of Tortuga, on our way to New York 🏙🗽

WASHINGTON DC 🇺🇸🏛
A great experience visiting this centre for politics and policy making that has impact on such a large part of the world. We spent a day here 10 years ago but this time we got  a chance to explore more of the city outside of the iconic buildings and monuments but of course also revisit the sights with the kids. We stayed in the newly developed wharf area which is nicely set on Potomac river. Georgetown was really pitoresque with its rowhouses, stores and canals. 

Washington DC is a great tourist destination and it makes it even more fun to explore as you can jump on the one dollar bus to take you around and then most of the sights and museums are free of charge. Unfortunately Covid restrictions still prevents visits into the congress meeting rooms, but it was still cool to enter the Capitol and take in the air in the corridors and cupole rotunda. 
The four days gave excellent opportunities to go through American and international history, politics, political systems in a pace where the kids maintain interest and focus. 

Today we hit the road again. Passing by Annapolis and the marina and technicians that will take care of Tortuga, on our way to New York 🏙🗽

TEKLA 8 YRS @ TIPI IN VIRGINIA 🇺🇸

We’re obviously still not a day older than 25 😉 but our middle daughter Tekla turned 8 on Friday 4 June 🎈and we wanted to give her an experience that would take all minds off last week’s unfortunate turn of events.

Glamping in a tipi in Virginia! What an amazing concept! Tekla and the whole family loved every moment in the cosy very well equipped tipi run by @sroadventures. Highlights included ziplines, high ropes, swimming pool, the tipi itself and of course birthday presents.

Happy Birthday dear Tekla!!! You are our considerate and down to earth (sea bottom?), sailor, mermaid 🧜‍♀️ and star ⭐️. We’ve loved exploring the world with you above and below water during the last year! ❤️❤️❤️

Next stop Washington DC!

GOOD BYE FOR NOW TORTUGA 🐢

It’s been a week since the devastating lightning strike that entered Tortuga through her VHF-antenna. Thank you so much for all the kind messages and thoughts you’ve sent our way! ❤️

We had a brilliant time hanging out with cousins in Raleigh NC last weekend getting away from it all for a short while! We wish we could see them more often.

After that we spent the week in Georgetown SC packing up and working to get our heads around our unwanted project. A first survey confirmed what we had feared, most electronics onboard are fried and need to be replaced. Only a couple of the 12V-systems like one of the fridges and one toilet (with no light though 😅💡) and some of the 220V-appliances like the aircon 🙏🏻 are still working. Both engines, all communication systems and all navigation systems are dead. As is the 48V lithium and advanced energy system. We are looking at something like 6-9 months to get everything replaced. 

We had a diver going into the brownish water with alligators (see video 😮). With the 10cm visibility he could not find any abnormalities. Obviously a full survey will be done once on the hard. 

The insurance company says they will cover the repairs, but it’s still our job to make it happen so there have been endless phone calls and e-mails during the week. We will be having the engines repaired in Georgetown SC and then have a skipper move Tortuga to Annapolis MD where we’ll be able to find the right expertise and leave the hurricane belt (hurricane season starts 1 June).

It will be a lengthy process and we will not be able to just sit around and wait. So we’ve packed up our stuff and, after a final sundowner, departed on a 2w road trip to wrap up our family adventure in a more positive way. After that we’ll fly home to Sweden to celebrate midsummer! 🇸🇪🌸🌿 We are for sure looking at several visits back to the US to monitor and drive the process during the coming year though.

We wish we could see them more often. After that we spent the week in Georgetown SC packing up and working to get our heads around our unwanted project. A first survey confirmed what we had feared, most electronics onboard are fried and need to be replaced. Only a couple of the 12V-systems like one of the fridges and one toilet (with no light though 😅💡) and some of the 220V-appliances like the aircon 🙏🏻 are still working. Both engines, all communication systems and all navigation systems are dead. As is the 48V lithium and advanced energy system. We are looking at something like 6-9 months to get everything replaced. We had a diver going into the brownish water with alligators (see video 😮). With the 10cm visibility he could not find any abnormalities. Obviously a full survey will be done once on the hard. The insurance company says they will cover the repairs, but it’s still our job to make it happen so there have been endless phone calls and e-mails during the week. We will be having the engines repaired in Georgetown SC and then have a skipper move Tortuga to Annapolis MD where we’ll be able to find the right expertise and leave the hurricane belt (hurricane season starts 1 June). It will be a lengthy process and we will not be able to just sit around and wait. So we’ve packed up our stuff and, after a final sundowner, departed on a 2w road trip to wrap up our family adventure in a more positive way. After that we’ll fly home to Sweden to celebrate midsummer! 🇸🇪🌸🌿 We are for sure looking at several visits back to the US to monitor and drive the process during the coming year though. #lightning #sailingfamily #familyadventure #sailingwithkids #lagoon42 #livingfastandslow

GAME OVER 😢😢😢

There will be no sailing into NYC and Martha’s Vineyard. This was not how it was meant to end. 

On Friday morning we were moored in Georgetown, SC when a massive thunderstorm rolled through. Lightning is one of the sailor’s worst fears although the odds are high to actually get hit. But with mostly lower motorboats around us the nightmare was a fact. We were hit by a direct strike⚡️killing almost all electronics on board; engines, generators, solar power, batteries, navigation, water, lavatories, fridges, freezers, induction hob, oven, air conditioning etc etc all gone. Obviously we can neither move nor live on Tortuga for the foreseeable future.

The lightning strike was so loud and sounded like a gunshot! We were all really frightened. Then it started smelling ozone and burnt dust and we ran around to find the sources. The VHF/AIS antenna on the mast head, our highest point, has been partially struck off, but other than that there is no other apparent structural damage. However, Tortuga will need to be hauled out and checked all over. Getting her back in order will be a massive project where everything must be replaced, and spares and electronics are really scarce these days. 

We are physically ok, which is what’s most important, but really upset and lost. What do we do now? We can’t and won’t accept an ending of our family adventure like this, although we are likely to have it cut shorter than expected. We are staying with Nicholas’ cousin in Raleigh NC over the weekend where we’re getting spoilt and will try to figure this out.

Take care all friends and followers!

SAVANNAH, GA & CHARLESTON, SC🇺🇸

Summarising two really nice stops along the coast. First we worked our way up the Savannah river to the city with the same name. It is one of the major ports on the US east coast so traffic is quite intense and the river is not that wide on all places. We moored right in the city centre next to a beautiful large sailing ship, Anne, that made Tortuga look like a small dinghy 😅. 

Savannah is really charming with moss covered trees lining almost all streets. Historic buildings downtown and more creative parts of town with street art and soft hangouts a bit further inland. During the 19th century, Savannah was the primary cotton port in the US (second globally) from where 2 million bales were shipped yearly, primarily to Europe. The cotton exchange was obviously an important building at the time. We also visited the farmers market and a few of the many sweet shops 🍪🍭🍬

We then continued onwards to Charleston, South Carolina. Another charming city with an ambient feeling and a lot of beautiful architecture. As these southern states were the centre of a lot of the slave trade we felt it was important to address the topic again and visit an old plantation. It’s really hard to explain to the girls how such cruelty could take place here only 200 years ago. We visited Magnolia Gardens which is a pretty plantation. But they also have four old cabins that were inhabited by slaves and which tell the stories about the huge differences in living standards and conditions in the past 🖤

We finally got a chance to air our swimming clothes again as we were moored in Charleston Harbour Marina with access to their resort facilities 💦

FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA 🇺🇸

The most northerly town on Florida’s coast is Fernandina Beach where we stayed for two nights. The downtown quarters of the city were charming and the surrounding nature calm and quiet, well suited for a bike tour. Right next to the city centre and marina were some heavy industries though making it a little less picturesque.

We biked past some alligators and also saw a few armadillos. We reached the long beaches on the Atlantic side and Fort Clinch, but none of us were particularly eager to jump in as the water is really brownish. You can barely see your feet 5 cm below the surface, not like the waters and beaches of the Caribbean and Bahamas that we’ve grown used to 🙄

Last night we set sail again and through sunset and sunrise we’ve taken a small detour up the Savannah river to explore the city of Savannah.

ST AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA 🇺🇸

St Augustine is said to be the oldest city in the USA, i.e. where the Spaniards first settled down in 1565. Although visited by a lot of tourists, the city still has a very soft vibe and is filled with cafés and restaurants with live music. We were lucky to time our visit with the yearly historic festival and walked straight into a historic street play with actors dressed up in 19th century clothing. The city’s historic district offers a beautiful setting for walks, drinks and dinners which we really enjoyed - in particular Harriet who had her own night out with dad. We also paid a visit to the Old Jail where apparently only few survived their sentences.

The Intra Coastal Waterway (ICW), the inland waterway that stretches 3000 miles along the coast all the way from Virginia to Texas, passes through the city with a drawbridge that opens regularly to let boats through. Sailing yachts with a lower mast height than 20m can follow the ICW all the way up to the Chesapeake Bay and avoid any rough conditions along the Atlantic coast. Tortuga however is 21m tall so we have to sail on the outside 😀⛵️ This far we’ve had very calm winds though.

We probably have to take on at a lot of marina nights here in the US but St Augustine offers a good anchorage. Although we all miss the clear waters and swims from the back of the boat as temperatures are already approaching the 30’s.

Although visited by a lot of tourists, the city still has a very soft vibe and is filled with cafés and restaurants with live music. We were lucky to time our visit with the yearly historic festival and walked straight into a historic street play with actors dressed up in 19th century clothing. The city’s historic district offers a beautiful setting for walks, drinks and dinners which we really enjoyed - in particular Harriet who had her own night out with dad. We also paid a visit to the Old Jail where apparently only few survived their sentences.

The Intra Coastal Waterway (ICW), the inland waterway that stretches 3000 miles along the coast all the way from Virginia to Texas, passes through the city with a drawbridge that opens regularly to let boats through. Sailing yachts with a lower mast height than 20m can follow the ICW all the way up to the Chesapeake Bay and avoid any rough conditions along the Atlantic coast. Tortuga however is 21m tall so we have to sail on the outside 😀⛵️ This far we’ve had very calm winds though.

We probably have to take on at a lot of marina nights here in the US but St Augustine offers a good anchorage. Although we all miss the clear waters and swims from the back of the boat as temperatures are already approaching the 30’s.
