Frist time sailing in Scandinavia

This is our last day in wonderful Denmark 🇩🇰. So very different to my visit to the Hebrides in May yet with some things in common.
A heritage boat from 1906, great host and skipper, good food on board, congenial fellow guests and crew.

Our first visit to Scandinavia and sailing in the Baltic. No tides. Warmer water. Sea but virtually no salt. A shallow coast so no anchoring for the night because you would be too far from the shore and regulations require an anchor watch if anchored.
Wonderful Danish design in so many aspects of life- architecture, infrastructure-spotless facilities on every island however small, all power and communication lines underground. Perfect English spoken by all ages.

We were the first clients for Aron from Ireland/UK through the Venturesail agency who can be delighted with this new addition to their fleet and the first ship based in Denmark.

Apart from delightful crew and other lovely guests we were joined by Angela from National GeograpicTraveller magazine and Richard James Taylor , photographer recording their first visit to Aron and Denmark.
Such fun to be with both of them on board.
Look out for a great article due in the December edition which goes on sale in November.
