105 Rocks – Svinösund – anchorage

Svinösund

This is just a random bay we anchored in when there was a northerly blowing. A very rare outing for the CQR in the bow. The bay shallows gradually, so you’re 150m or so offshore. By Baltic standards it feels miles from the shore. If it was in Britain it’d feel as sheltered as can be. You’ll need to approach carefully as there’s shallows and rocks about, some of which I don’t think are charted. We were there on midsummer’s night and though it was ostensibly deserted, we could hear the unmistakable sounds of partying being carried to us on the wind from miles away.

A shallow bay with nowhere to approach the shore…
