We had the most amazing day sailing around the Stockholm archipelago aboard Lasse’s gorgeous yacht. The weather was absolutely perfect and we were lucky enough to only have three people plus Lasse on board, so it felt like a private tour. Lasse provided us with the utmost in hospitality and information, and prepared a lovely lunch which we ate anchored in a small cove in the sun. On the return trip we were privileged to pass through the fleet of competitors in the international AF Offshore yacht race, which was quite a spectacular sight. We cannot recommend highly enough this fantastic day trip, Lasse provided us with an unforgettable experience.

The weather was beautiful, the food delightful, the conversation informative, the islands spectacular. We absolutely loved sailing with them. It was the highlight of our 5 week trip to Scandinavia. A memory that will remain with us. John and Linda i
