She is a beauty! You have great taste in boats. Is she in Australia? maybe someone at CF can go chack her out for you (?). For a crew position try Find a Crew™ .
Cheers,
Erika

Nope, no north sea experience here but am extremely envious of a Sweden and a Norway summer cruise. It sounds like you are off on a grand adventure. Feel free to post pictures, we here at CF love pictures .
Cheers,
Erika

Ok, i love pictures to!! Ill but some out on my profile side.

Sailing to stockholm is a super smooth experience starting from mai to august. Many people sail thro the Keel canal and then opp thro østersøen. ca 450 Nm. Then sail back the same route back and travel the vest Coast of sweden. There is lost of nice marinas both in sweden and denmark. go by Copenhagen (fantastic place) then maybe to Anholt (litlle island between sweden and denmark) Then its just crusing opp the swedish coast intil you enter Norway. Depending on your amount of time you can travel down the east coast of Norway an continue intil you reach murmansk i russia. he he.

List of great places on the way
Starting from stocholm and south
-Norrkøping
- Gotland (island south of sweden)
-simrishamn'
-Ystad
-Copenhagen
-Anholt
-Skagen (festival early july) The place to exp dansih culture!!!beers and beers
-Dont go to gotenborg, try marstrand instead, its just outside gotenborg.
-Lysekil
-Smøgen (super nice place whit lots og fishing exp and tradition)
- Koster (Island close to the norwegian border)
Hvaler (Sommerbilder - www.hvaler.no) my home islands, check out the pictures!!

Will be continiud.

p.s My English is rubbish, sorry!!!

Dag nabbit, the problem with this forum is you meet people from all over and they tell you about beautiful places, of which I add to my "destinations to sail to" list (the list is growing). It is a beautiful world we live in, can't wait to go see some of it. Hvaler looks beautiful, the sea bed looks to be all rock (?). What anchor do you like to use? Also, speaking of anchoring, can you anchor out in front of the Copenhagen opera house?
Cheers,
Erika

PS
your english is great.

anchor choise

Thank you!
Yes the sea bed is all rocks, and not very forgiving if you hit it. But whit the charts you get thse days its no problem, as long ass you plan your routes carefully and pay attention to all the fishing nets around. We like to use a folding anchor, those one whit tree or four "legs" that foldes out if you know what mean. http://www.aye-aye.no/images/c36.jpg

- can you anchor out in front of the Copenhagen opera house?

No anchor but there is plenty rom at the pear on the other side of the canal.

See attachments. There is a super cool beach club just a bit up the canal from the opera.
