Returning to Oxelösund

We finally completed the circle today and arrived back at Oxelösund. We left Ringson about 8.30am and pottered through the archipelago under motor (the wind was light and bang on the nose), finally crossing over the channel and past the steelworks into Oxelösunds Fiskehamn –...

Returning to Ringson

We finally crossed our outward track today as we headed from Nattaro to Ringson. We did a total of 32.9 miles in 5 hours and 20 minutes with around half of this under sail. we left Nattaro just after 8am and for...

Nudging to Nåttarö

In our quest to head further south, we decided to head today for Nåttarö. On paper (or electronic chart), this was a good decision – a further 25 miles or so in the right direction towards Oxelosund, but unfortunately the weather had other...

Gliding to Gronskarsfladden

Having dropped Fiona off for her flight yesterday, we set off promptly this morning to start our way south. We had decided to head for an anchorage called Gronskarsfladden – it looked good in the pilot guide, so we hoped for the...

Skimming to Stockholm

The plan for today was to head into Stockholm first thing to drop Fiona for her flight, so we started about 8.30am and once again had to motor all the way with the wind directly on the nose. Though it was a...

Vaxholm revisited

A return visit to Vaxholm today. The logical route back to Stockholm takes us through Vaxholm, but rather than go the main ferry channel through we decided to go the scenic way which is around 5 miles longer. We also did a...

Blundering to Blido

A change of plan (again …) today. The weather forecast was not great for crossing between Aland and Stockholm over the coming few days, so we decided to head over to Stockholm a little earlier than anticipated. The weather looked OK for...

Knocking about in Kastelholm

Today we continued our Aland historical binge by exploring Kastelholm Slot (Castle). It was a relatively short run (14.2 miles in 2 hours and 45 minutes) from Bomarsund to Kastelholm and we had to motor all the way with very light winds....

Bombing to Bomarsund

Actually, not much bombing at all took place on this trip in terms of pace. We left Kumlinge after a night disturbed by the mix of vodka and a Russian charter boat (registered under a Montenegran flag for convenience!). We left around...
