Strangers to sail boats are sometimes intimidated by the prospect of living in confined spaces and being deprived of the creature comforts of home. This is our experience of staying aboard a Bali 4.5 sailing catamran.

The Stockholm Archipelago offers a maze of 23,000 islands with the waterways offering the best sailing I have ever experienced anywhere in the world ever; flat water, terrific breezes and any number of places to drop an anchor for a swim or lunch stop. Even the smallest towns have special Guest Harbours reserved for visitors and all of them offer excellent facilities onshore. Sometimes, however, the boys and the girls get mixed up but no one seems to care.
This was my third trip to Sweden over 4 years and the weather was terrific; this year even better than terrific but not Swedish typical we were told. We swam comfortably at 60° North latitude under clear blue skies!

Sharing a yacht with people you’ve never met opens you up to new cultures, opinions and conversations you just don’t generally experience on a regular basis in everyday life. And if you’re lucky, you might just make some lifelong friends as well. You’re sharing a unique sailing experience in a beautiful new country and it’s the kind of adventure that can’t help but bring people together.
What an experience. What a way to travel. Yes, I had been nervous. But I knew this had been one of the best experiences of my life.
