Byxelkrok harbour on Öland was our southernmost point for this season and on 13th of July we took a heading towards north. For the first time, we took an archipelago route from Öland to Stockholm Archipelago via the eastern coast of Sweden. On this part of the coast, the archipelago is quite narrow between the mainland and open Baltic Sea. However, the islands are mostly giving a good protection and the scenery along the route is definitely worth seeing. We stayed three nights in natural harbours, as there are a lot of possibilities for anchoring especially around St. Anna’s Archipelago.
We continued north towardas Åland and Finland through the Stockholm Archipelago.
During the trip, Dolphin Dance II logged 720 nautical miles. In overall, we were lucky with the winds as we travelled about 80 % of the nautical miles with renewable energy. We spent total of 13 nights on anchorages.
