Sailing is a unique way to travel. Especially when it comes to the end of the Baltic Sea. On the coast of the Bothnian Sea lies the small town of Haparanda between Sweden and Finland, the destination of this trip. With their Swedish-built Vindö 32, Florian and Birgit Hanauer sail to the end of the Baltic Sea in the summer of 2021. On more than 2200 nautical miles, they face dramatic and funny experiences. And what’s best? The whole trip is almost without tides… so it’s tideless fun on the Baltic Sea.

This book contains: 15 maps of the route across the Baltic Sea and over 50 photos (printed in this edition in greyscale). There is the detailed cruise report from Stockholm to the north coast of the Gulf of Bothnia, and the trips from Hamburg to Stockholm as well. The book also contains many practical tips about cruising.
