Un énorme sourire ce soir en lisant ce mail envoyé par Magnus, 2ksuniste suédois s’étant enregistré il y a tout juste un an. Je vous laisse savourer ce témoignage illustré, nous faisant découvrir un plan d’eau vraiment particulier et visiblement assez exceptionnel.
I just wanted to send you some photos from a trip we did last summer. The photos are taken on Alskär, a small island in the Stockholm archipelago (N 59° 17.646′, E 18° 59.129′) Here is a link to a chart: http://kartor.eniro.se/m/pbzfv. Alskär is situated in the outer archipelago and is only accessible in good weather.
To cope with the not so reliable weather in Sweden we have equipped our boat with a custom made tent. This gives us a fantastic place to cook and eat even when the rain is pouring down. It is also the sleeping place for our 50 kilo dog Jack, who loves to sail.
We have no tide in the Baltic sea but literally thousands of shallow bays unaccessible to larger boats. The Sun 2000 is the perfect boat for exploring those places over weekends or longer trips.
Last autumn I made a 24 hour (almost) non stop solo trip in my boat for the first time. Navigating around the islands using lighthouses (and a handheld GPS plotter) in total darkness was one of my best sailing experiences ever.
I just wanted to share some memories from the northern parts of Europe and if you have plans to take your boat to enjoy the swedish coasts, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Un grand merci à Magnus! Mais je sens que cette tente va en intéresser plus d’un… A suivre.
