Cruising Scandinavia

Ahoy Sailors and Landlubbers !

This year we do two longer trips in the Northern Baltic. The trip, called “Archipelago Discovery” takes us, once again, out on our beautiful Scandinavian cruising ground. Our aim is to delve deep in local culture and culinary resources enjoying the wonderful backdrop of thousands of islands and islets sailing what yachties call the Rolls Royce of the Seas. The Archipelago Cruise takes us from Stockholm/Sandhamn back to Helsinki past Mariehamn and Tallinn, just to mention a few stops.

No previous sailing experience needed, our pro skipper gives you a hands on tutorial. You can hop on solo, as a couple or maybe rent the whole boat as a family or group?
