It depends on were in Sweden. Stockholm archipelago normally no big issue, far up in the north some times lots of them. South and West no big issue from wath I know.

Plenty of gnats. Also ticks. August is imho not all that bad. Spring/summer always seemed worst to me.

Hi Laurie,

If you are sailing towards the southern end of sweden there generally isn't any problem. we've sailed the baltic for years and have never had any misquito problems whatsoever. Far up north this is different
