Hello from Stockholm, Sweden

Hello!

We are a couple from Sweden, who have a dream to circumnavigate the globe. Not yet, but we will in the future. We are still novice sailors and really need to start from the beginning with everything.

We welcome any information that will help us on our way and one of the main reasons to make the trip is to get to know new people.

Greetings from,
Peter & Hanna

Re: Hello from Stockholm, Sweden

Howdy and Welcome Aboard the Forum Peter and Hanna!

You posted a nice introduction. And I also like that you see sailing as a way of meeting new people around the world. I feel that way too.

Since you are new to this forum, let me mention that there are also some "social groups" that are more focused on special interests. I am not a member of those groups, but you should be able to find them if you do some exploring of the forum website, look for "groups."

Cruisers & Sailing Forums - All Groups

For example, a female sailor might be interested in the Mermaids Group. It has 206 members.
______________________

Profiles Help People Relate

You can also post a profile (when you sign up you can create a profile on this site or edit it later) and in that you can also post photos and a description of your sailing desires or experiences.

You may click on a member's name (avatar) to see their public profile and through that page you can also send them private messages if you wish. You can look at mine for an example, and see I have written something and also posted some photos in an album.

I encourage you to complete the profile early in your membership in the forum, so those people who would like to know something about a new member can learn. Unfortunately, I did not post a complete profile (due to ignorance about that feature of the site), until after I noticed that my empty profile page had already had 1,000 views by forum members. This meant I missed sharing information with those 1,000 folks who had some level of interest in who I am.

Not everyone does post any written "bio" or even a photo of themselves, but I think it adds to the human factor of a community to see a face and know a little about that person, and makes it more "personal" or more "human."

I also encourage the use of a photo of the sailor (or couple) as the avatar. I think it also adds to the "human community" aspect of the online experience.

Good luck on your sailing adventures and have fun!

Sincerely,
Steady

Re: Hello from Stockholm, Sweden

Welcome to CF Peter & Hanna

During the winter/spring there have been several threads about sailing in the Baltic. Click on Forums, under Scuttlebutt (= skvaller) and under Destinations select Europe & Mediterranean. You who lives in the area that there is much talk about could maybe contribute with some knowledge. Some boots are 15.6 m long and have a draft of 2.5 m.

I started a thread “Convenience of the metric system”. It is also under Scuttlebutt but under Off Topic Forums. For a short time it was very hot. One thing that I learned was that scientist and engineers in US use the metric system. So do not be afraid of using it, more than 90% of the worlds population knows what you talk about.

I have a 9.0 m boot, Netta. At the moment I is in may schedule for sailing one way over the Atlantic in 3.5 year. I have been out in one year an is about to continue the sailing the next week. On my page I have written little about the equipment I have installed and way I have it. Look on the page http://segla-med-firda.blogspot.se It’s in Swedish.
