Cruising Association talk by Baltic yachtsman

This week’s Cruising Association lecture is on Wednesday 13th February: Sailing in the Northern Baltic, by Douglas Addison.

Douglas’s new Nauticat 351 was launched at Turku, Finland in May 2007. Over the summer, he sailed through the islands to Helsinki, Tallin, along the Estonian coast and down the Gulf of Riga to Latvia, then via the Latvian coast across to the Estonian Island of Saaremasala before crossing to Gotland and Faro. He then explored the islands south of Stockholm before visiting Stockholm and returning to Turku solo via the Swedish Archipelago and the Aaland Islands. Visiting the old Hanseatic ports and following the track of Arthur Ransome’s adventures made for a fascinating passage.
