My wife was at the helm, when we were motoring (very slowly thank god) into a cove. The cove and channel were indicated on the Swedish Sportbåtskort, and showed 3 meters.

Well we hit an hit square, soing aobut 2-2 1/2 knots and we stopped dead inthe water. Fortunately we didn't hit hard enought to get seepage around the keel bolts. I dove and looked and while it doesn't look very nice, there appears to be no real damage.

good paper charts are a necessaity when sailing here, as are the best pilot books money can buy
I would say "that sure makes me feel better", but it doesn't -- because I'm really sorry it happened to you! Ouch!

Where are you now, Carsten? We'll be in Stockholm tomorrow.

Re: Lost My Baltic Virginity

Dockhead, we are back in Copenhagen, our summer holidays were only 1 month long and that ends tomorrow.

Stop by - beer's cold, beans are hot and I can probably rustle up a steak and a bottle of some red wine.

Copenhagen is out of the way, but if we get a good sailing wind and make some miles, then, by God, we will. Thanks for the invite.

Re: Lost My Baltic Virginity

As you cross lower sweden, go through the Falsterbo Canal (saves some nm's), once out the other side, Copenhagen is about a 4 hour run (depending, of course on wind and weather). We did the run yesterday with only our gennaker, cruising at 7-8 knots the whole way.

FYI - you may think russian gals are pretty - but the most beautiful women in the world live in Copenhagen (of course I'm not biased - not one single little bit) and they are VERY friendly

I will also be very curious to see what local charts show.
Checked your position against a chart in my Swedish small boat chart folio (1:2500 for that area). Looks exactly the same as my Navioncs chart.

I.e., nothing shown?

Re: Lost My Baltic Virginity

Exactly, no rocks near that point. The bay looks perfect on a chart.

Lol. But I doubt it. They would have surfaced and blasted me with their deck gun

Another newbie question: if a Navionics customer ( I am one too) puts a mark on a hazard that wasn't on the chart, does it upload to Navionics for other users to acquire?
In other words, is this a Wikipaedia for charting?
Or is the crossbone you put on your chart just for your own use?

There is some kind of "community layer" people can contribute and one can switch it on on some devices to see what others have found out. For my understanding, community layer data goes also through some check before it is put into database.

If I had to rank them (twist my arm), I'd say:

No. 1 Russian women (of course!)
No. 2 Swedish women
No. 3 Estonian women
No. 4 Polish women
No. 5 German women

unranked: Danish, Latvian, Lithuanian -- due to no experience
As northern european guy I know these waters and woman, obvious you don't know the Brazilian waters and woman. I came here for a few month 3 years agoo. Yep they don't speak English......

I don't say anything at all about Brazilians. The ranking only considers Baltic peoples
