Skipper: Peter and Christian
Crew: Alena, Franziska and Daniel
Arriving the day before our cruise, we visited a Finnish restaurant in the evening, which was very comfortable. We were able to taste Finnish specialities such as salmon and Renntier. The next morning we took ove MY ROLLING SWISS II in the port of Helsinki.
The shopping was dealt with quickly and efficiently and we were off!
First off, everyone practiced manouvers int he port, before we headed off on our trip in the direction of Dragesviken. Having been working on the voyage plan for some time, Christian had prepared various options for each day, to be chosen according to the weather and our mood.
It was decided to do a day trip, and the whole crew took it in one hour turns to be navifator and look out. This worked perfectly – we were a really good team!
Ont he second day, we did some fast passage making – really fun! Having made our way to Taamisaari, we visited the beautiful Finnish city. Then on to the Bengtskär Lighthouse, which at 46m tall is the highest in the Nordic countries and then on to Hankö and Inkoo before returning to Helsinki.
We would often stay in a beautiful bay in the middle of the archipelago, int he middle of the glorious Finnish landscape, surounded by peace and quiet, water, sun and birds. Simply gorgeous! A high point was mooring up to a rock – something none of us had ever seen – thanks Skipper Peter.
The crew was able to gain valuable experience and confidence due to the experiences of both skippers. A warm thank you to Peter and Christian.
The yacht ROLLING SWISS II is very comfortable and very well equipped, she really lacks nothing! Despite the fresh wind and cold temperatures, we could enjoy much sun and watch a beautiful Finnish nature from the water! It was a really wonderful cruise!
