Our first stop in Sweden

July 17-28, 2021

Our first stop in Sweden was Arild, in southern part of Sweden. We stopped there since it was where Petras parents live. We got greeted by our family and friends and spent little more than a week there, enjoying some Swedish summer.

If ever in Northwestern Skåne, you should visit Holy Smoke, which make really good slowcooked food.
Kullaberg in Skåne has a lot of cool cliffs and hidden swimming places you can walk to.

After a couple of days in Arild we headed south to sail around the southern tip of Sweden before sailing north again up to Stockholm.

We stopped for two nights in Skanör in southern Skåne. Skanör has huge white beaches, almost like being back in the Caribbean.

In Skanör we enjoyed the sunny weather and had a drink at a beach bar in the evening. We ate dinner at the boat and prepared for our next sail, which would be an overnighter to Kalmar.
