Last Sunday we went out with some freedivers from Stockholm Apea to dive and explore the quarry of Stora Vika. It was truly amazing. Stockholm don't offer a lot of places with a clear visibility, but Stora Vika kalkbrott was clear.
In the beginning of October 2016, med and my friend Adam joined the sailing vessel T/S Constantia for a race - Saltkråkan Race!
The race took place in the Stockholm archipelago and lasted for about 5 hours. There were several big schooners in the race, some faster, some a bit older. Anyways, it was a great experience sailing on such a huge boat, and I look forward to the next race!
Some photos from the race:
One of the first photos on the boat. This was the day before the race started.The morning of the race, on an island called Ängö.During the race, one of the older schooners.Our propellors got tangled up in some old fishing nets, so I volunteered to swim down and cut the nets with a sharp knife.
Last Saturday we went to Vagnhärad kalkbrott together with Stockholm Apnea, to do some free diving!
The visibility was great, between 12-15m clear but cold water. The surface temperature was around 12°C. We did some CWT (constant weight with fins) diving, down a line with lanyards. We swam through an airplane and even did some "bathing" in a tub at 8 meter depth. There is not much life in this limestone quarry, but we managed to spot some crayfish and perch. Check out this video: At the end of the video, I try out my new innovation: The FlexiDive! More info about this freediving gear can be found on the webpage!
