This year has started great.
Several really good events have been organized by different people in the Gothenburg area.

There is a very active club for Albin Express, expresseglare.org. They together with North Sails organized a great “Trim for Speed” evening (Some pictures here). Then we have the Volvo Ocean Race evenings at restaurant Tres in Lindholmen. Also Pannrummet have theme evenings serving good presentations around sailing and also has locally brewed beer, Ödmans Öl.

The big event every spring is of cource the Gothenburg boat fair, Båtmässan.
This year I spent most time hanging in the Quatum Sails bar.

I attended Peter Gustavssons ( blur.se ) presentation about boat instrumentation and weather routing. Really good and more info at Peters blog.

Some pictures of people from the the boat fair can be found on flickr – Båtmässan 09
