A week in the Finnish Archipelago Sea

by Love4C

4000,00  /boat, including crew

A full week of sailing on the Finnish Archipelago Sea and Åland Islands!
Enjoy a crewed cruise in the Baltic. The experienced skipper guides you through the archipelago and reveals the mysteries of sailing.

More than 50 000 islands and islets spread between Finland and Åland alone, creating the most enchanting cruising grounds in the Baltic and indeed the world. Add to this the Stockholm archipelago on the Swedish side, and you can spend a lifetime exploring.

You will also experience the long days of the Finnish summer. It doesn’t really get dark at night, so you may well enjoy a midnight sail.

We offer fun, fast but comfortable sailing onboard “Another Brick”, a First 44.7 sailing yacht designed by Bruce Farr, the worlds most successful designer. The crew consists of a skipper as well as a hostess to take care of your needs. We can provide accomodations for 4 guests (max 6).

Price include:

  • Skipper, hostess
  • Safety equipment
  • Fuel and harbour fees
  • Bedding and towels
  • Household chores handled by crew

Not included:

  • Transport to/from yacht
  • Food and drinks onboard (we can take care of provisioning on your behalf)
  • Food, drinks and anything else ashore

We will be starting and returning to the east harbour of Hanko, the southernmost peninsula of Finland, often called the Finnish Riviera. From there, the Archipelago Sea, as well as the Åland islands are within close reach. We can also make a visit to Sweden – maybe to the capital, Stockholm, or south to Visby, the medieval capital of the Gotland island. A two week reservation is also possible
