The videos listed below are edited for different purposes in various contexts and not necessarily on platforms optimized for a web site. Some are extracted from movies on DVD and others from posts to social media. Some have been converted to the present format from the original flash format that we started with many years ago, which has since (by Adobe Corp.) been thrown under the bus. From our collection of more than 100 hours of films, we have tried to choose clips as short as possible. Most of them run for less than a minute.

Sailing into Gorda Sound with the Lindqvist family. Singing our signature song "Hallå du gamla indian" by Lasse Dahlqvist.

Southbound Again - Sailing Season 1997 in a Nutshell

A Journey to the Centre of the Earth
Mediterranean - 4:52 min. - 1998
The sailing season of 1998 in a 5 minutes. Thanks to Jules Verne I had for many years nurtured the idea of sailing to Stromboli and anchoring on its shores in my own yacht. So I did.

We also visited Sardinia, mainland Italy, Sicly, Malta and Tunisia. When we returned to Mallorca, our starting point, the yacht was diagnosed with osmosis.

You can check text and pictures from our cruise in the Mediterranean in the summer of 1998 HERE.

Hejsan - år 2000
Esbo, Finland - 1:40 min. - 2000

The greeting, to folks back home, from our sailing adventures somewhere in the world had been delivered on the 30th of June every year from 1990 and 1999. In 2000 we had to change the date for this tradition, because from then on we wouldn't normally be on the yacht in June. We had sold our house and would spend the summer months in Finland and the rest of the year sailing around the world aboard Scorpio. Therefore the greeting from 2001 and thereafter was filmed on the 16th of November - Captain's birthday.
Spoken in Swedish.



Scorpio's Transit of the Panama Canal

Hejsan 2005
Ecuador - Runtime 1:40 min. - 2005

As noted above, the day of our yearly greeting to folks back home changed from 30th June to 16th November. Every year this oration was carried out in a certain format . It always ended with:
"Livet ler, vad annat kan man begära" (Life is good, what more could you ask for(.
In November 2005 we were anchored in Bahia de Caraques in Ecuador, preparing to start on our Pacific crossing, with first stop in the Galapagos islands. You can read more about this HERE.
