A fantastic experience
We had a great 4 hour sail with Ulrika. She was a fabulous host. She knows the wind, the water, and her boat very well. A fantastic experience overall.
A fantastic day on the water and an absolutely perfect sailing lesson!
Thank you Karin for a fantastic day on your boat! You gave us profound knowledge adjusted to our sailing level so that we were able to sail on our own the next day. It was a pleasure to spend the day together and we highly recommend Vind o Vatten! Thanks a lot!
Fantastic and unforgettable!
We are 3 Swiss people who love to sail and have always wanted to experience the Stockholm archipelago on a sailboat. Karin from Vind o Vatten made this possible. Her sailboat is moored in the port of Dalarö, a sailor’s paradise that is a 45-minute drive from Stockholm. Shortly after 10 a.m. we started – well “packed” in Karin’s sailing gear – on a 6-hour sailing tour around the island of Nämdö. Thanks to the good wind (it seems like there’s almost always wind here!) we were able to moor in a small bay and eat something for lunch. Karin is not only fluent in French and English, she is also an extremely interesting woman. We would highly recommend this sailing tour to anyone wanting to explore the archipelago.
Sail and overnight anchorage
Fantastic sailing with Karin Modigh who was keenly alive to the needs and wishes of both children and adults, and who adapted the sailing with incredible care and thoughtfulness. An unforgettable trip to Huvudskär!
Sailing with Birgitta on the Esmeralda 2 was the most memorable time of my 5 days in Stockholm. The boat is tip top and her attitude is totally cool. Birgitta’s knowledge of the archipelago is encyclopedic but she totally gets that sailing is about listening to and watching the wind and water so you have to ask questions to get the full benefit of her wisdom! I would do it again in a heartbeat.
An unforgettable trip
We went on a sailing trip with Birgitta on her beautiful boat « Esmeralda 2 ». We went around Dalarö and then the second day we sailed till Utö. It was very easy to sail and take an active role on the boat as Birgitta explained everything very clearly. She also had organized the trip in a way so we can get the most of the Archipelago : fine deli for lunch, dinner at a fancy restaurant and breakfast at a typical bakery with lots of delicious pastries. Birgitta has also been very helpful recommending things we can do while in the Archipelago. It was a unique and unforgettable experience for the whole family. I highly recommend it!
