Sweden | Distant Shores


The Baltic is an amazing summer cruising ground and magnet for boaters in the area who revel in the many islands and harbours. We made Sweden part of our journey in 2010 spending nearly 2 months cruising Swedish waters. Here we are tied up to the shore - a Swedish tradition that helps make room for more boats in tight coves. We are here August 15 which is actually at the end of the season so we are the only boat in this normally busy harbour!

Warm enough to get Sheryl in swimming? Actually she has just had a sauna so is just cooling off! Sauna’s are marked on the chart - so we anchored here, went ashore and lit the sauna, enjoyed a good steam and left our $5 in the box! How neat is that?
Coolest harbour ever - we are in a moat at Vadstena Castle in one of Sweden’s 2 huge lakes.
Visby Medieval Festival - a MUST if you are around Gotland in the summer. We filmed the antics for the show of course.
At the end of the season we took the Gota Canal to head back west right across Sweden. See blog here. Filmed it for Distant Shores in Season 7
