Neil, looking very happy with his new boat, at the Wasahamnen marina in central Stockholm

This is the second part of a two-part interview where Neil Fletcher and I discuss our trip in the summer of 2016 through the Swedish archipelago. We discuss the small and delightful guest harbor at Smä Dalarö, the busy port of Sandhamn, which is considered the sailing capital of the archipelago, and some trouble we encountered battling swells and ferry traffic on the island of Moja. Neil has much more detail about sailing in Sweden available at his website, www.sailingarcturus.com

Here’s the route that. Neil and I discuss in these next two episodes.
