Re: Photos from the Baltic Sea

Your cruising grounds are really beautiful.

Yep. See my signature line. Ours won't be ready to launch for a few more years -- 40 years of benign neglect to address -- but we are very much looking forward to sailing it!

Beautiful area, the Baltic. Challenging to navigate, isn't it?

Not too unlike the Albin Scampi. Sailed on one a few years back.

Re: Photos from the Baltic Sea

FinallySailing - where are you from? Looking at the photos, I was thinking the same thing. I'm from Nordfriesland originally.

As you can tell...reading is not one of my strong traits when there are pictures nearby.

Baggy wrinkle is wrapping of soft material around shrouds or other hard objects to prevent sail damage (traditionally made from old rope whose strands and yarns have been untwisted and woven onto stronger yarn which is then wrapped on the shrouds in the vicinity of the spreaders).

Re: Photos from the Baltic Sea

@fryewe: here at the coast of the Baltic Sea it is a tradition to put flower at the bow or wrapping like a garland around the pulpit, when you are giving a name to the boat. Then you have to wear it, until it it goes into the sea while sailing. Itīs an old tradion here.

Re: Photos from the Baltic Sea

I like the tradition although the tradition involving rum and champagne may be merrier.
