Navigare Necesse Est! Hop on-board – Welcome to the blog Navigare necesse est, a blog about sailing and food & drink on-board. It is about cruising among all the islands of the Baltic sea and the archipelago of Stockholm especially. The archipelago around Stockholm has over 20.000 islands and islets and it is very dear to me and it is among these I have my home harbor. About me: I, Tyra the author of this blog live on a rather small island near the town Vaxholm. I have the Coastal Skipper Certificate and this Coastal Skipper Certificate is the second level of the official Swedish nautical training courses for recreational boat drivers. I love night navigation and has an in-depth knowledge of both day and night navigation, 'close to shore' as well as offshore. The Coastal Skipper Certificate is compulsory for the sailing of boats larger than 12 x 4 meters. Our boat is not that big at all but you never know one day perhaps I really need it. Although I'm sometimes the Captain of the boat and enjoys it I think I am more than willingly to spend a lot of time down in the galley. I just love to cook and bake on-board and I'm lucky I don’t get seasick below deck as many people unfortunately do, the only problem when cooking on-board is when it is leaning too much to one side and if we are going on the wrong tack.

Skärgårdsmässan 2009 - Wasahamnen



Det är stor Skärgårdsmässa på Djurgården i helgen.


Wasahamnen


29-31 MAJ


"I år firar Skärgårdsmässan 20-årsjubileum! Skärgårdsmässan är en folkfest som inviger sommaren varje år. Här möter tiotusentals besökare företag med anknytning till Stockholms och Östersjöns skärgårdardar. Mässans fokus har alltsedan starten varit en tillgänglig levande skärgård, natur, kultur, miljö och kvalitet, vilket bland annat avspeglas i att alla utställare har en seriös verksamhet och välgjorda produkter.





Jag älskar den här tiden på året, mellan hägg och syrén. Vill visa ett lite kollage ifrån landkrabbans trädgård.


Syringa vulgaris
