Baltic Sea - the most beautifull destinations

Hello everybody,
We are a married couple from Poland. For more than 10 seasons we have been sailing at the Baltic Sea. We have visited about 200 harbors and anchorages and lately we got an idea to share our knowledge with other sailors. A few months ago we started to write a Sailing Photoblog. We write about the most beautiful places we have visited. Spots that can be easily missed when cruising from one well known destination to another. The blog is written in Polish but there are many photos as well. Besides, everybody can use automatic translators (like google translator) nowadays. The translations are a bit funny sometimes, but if someone is interested in a certain place, it is worth trying.
You are welcome to visit our blog:
Bank Zdj A. i W. Biliskich - zdjcia z Polski, Bank Fotografii, fotografia przyrodnicza, photos of Poland, fototapety
and if you would be interested in getting some more info about any place mentioned on the photoblog or generally about sailing on Baltic, please send us an e-mail.
We put news almost once a week and always announce that on our Facebook, so if you like, join us there as well.

Best wishes from Poland
Agnieszka and Wlodek Bilinscy

Thanks for sharing. You have some really nice pictures in that site.

I don't see anybody on the water taking a bath. What is the water temperature?

Regards

Paulo

Well, the temperature is almost like in the well :-)

Seriously: 13-18 Centigrades. In July and August sometimes more than 21 and it is possible to swim. Only people from Sweden and Finland swim whole season.

And to think I was whining about the 24 degree water temperature this winter... (we're spoiled here).

Some amazing photos! Thanks for sharing.

I was really surprised to see the stern anchor / bow tie technique. That one is new to me. Around here it's common to use a bow anchor and stern tie, but your technique probably lets you get closer to the shore. Our shores are very steep-to so it might not make a difference for us.

And of course it was very impressive to see those boats careened on the sand. Is that very common?

Later I will have to run the page through a translator and give it a read.

Beautiful. In a few years, my wife and I plan to come visit you after crossing the pond.

Hi Adam,
The name of our photoblog is Sailing. We write about Baltic mostly, but some photos are from our voyage from France (Atlantic) to Poland, for example from Channel Islands. The one with yachts on the sand is about tidal waters of Waddensee, a "sea" between the main land and a chain of Frisian Islands (Netherlands and Germany). Drying on the bottom of the sea is popular there (if you have a boat capable of doing this) but the weather must be good. Otherwise the returning water with the waves can crash the vessel. We spent very interesting time walking around our Safran and looking for animals living in the sand. On Baltic we do not have tides.

Hello treilley,
Crossing the pond... when you do it you will feel on Baltic as on puddle. It doesn't mean that it is esy to sail here but the distances are shorter. There are not many yacht from another side here :-(
