We spent an average of 2.2 days at each location, and our journey distance averages out to just 26 nm per passage. The shortest was just 4 nautical miles from Alglo Island to Rodja Algo Island in Finland and the longest being 131 nautical miles from Lauwersoog in The Netherlands to Brunsbuttel – Germany.
We (again) met some really lovely people along the way, saw some amazingly beautiful scenery, explored countries and cultures that were previously unknown to us.
Some spectacular memories were made exploring the nature islands in Finland (in the sun no less) as well as Sweden (the free washing machines at the marinas and their scrumptious food).
It was a real treat sailing in the Baltic Sea without having to worry about tides and such and also to enjoy so much daylight during the summer (never getting dark).
Some things such as tricky box moorings (whilst conquered without incident) will definitely not be missed.
Red Roo as always looked after us well, keeping us afloat, safe and comfortable – we can’t ask for anymore than that.
Thank you to those of you who followed our adventures during this year via these blog posts. I know at times they can be quite sporadic (depending on internet availability) as well as long (and probably quite tedious for you to read), but I hope you have enjoyed them, or at least the photos. It is really a very lovely feeling to have you all care enough and show interest to follow us on our adventure.
Thank You and we wish you and your families a
Very Merry Christmas and a Safe, Happy and Healthy 2018
