- Do you have a favorite company? A google search brings up a couple, looking for any good experiences.
- I've sailed almost exclusively in the Caribbean. Anything I should be aware of in the Stockholm archipelago? Anything that may catch me by surprise? I realize this is a general question, but any new territory has surprises.
- Any place we must stop? Favorite restaurants? Things to see/experience?
- Where do I order english charts
for the area?
Thanks in advance!
I own my own boat so not much experience with charter companies.
I sail mostly on the Swedish west coast and south coast of Norway.
But I will try.

Link to digital map on the web - good for planning but not navigation

Gästhamnar = Guest harbours
Naturhamnar = Natural harbours (anchorages)
You are allowed to go ashore almost everywhere (a long as you stay away away from private docks and gardens)
Some anchorages is so small/crowded that we have a stern anchor
