Summer Sailing in Sweden

Joergen Agardtson and friends have been sailing his Wa'apa for the last three summers.

Stewart Jackson found that if you live in Australia it is wise to always check your bilge before hopping into your Ulua.  That's a carpet python in the photo above.

With some gentle persuasion, it was convinced to find another place for a nap.

Stuart reefs the sail by rolling it around the mast.  This has worked well
