Next Meetup

Become a certified skipper – Inshore Yachtmaster 2018
Hi all! In the past, I have co-arranged boat courses with Sjösportskolan. This year, it will be both a Swedish and an English course with separate dates. Some of the members in this group have asked for boat courses, and that is why I publish them here. The courses are not for meetup members only, but open to anyone who wants to take them. This course is a basic theoretical course, that will make your boat experiences so much more rewarding and fun. More info about the courses: Swedish: https://www.sjosportskolan.se/fritid/kurs/forarintyg/ English: https://www.sjosportskolan.se/fritid/kurs/forarintyg-in-english/ To sign up for the course: Swedish Course: https://boka.sjosportskolan.se/bokawin?cid=2739&t=2&_ga=2.258651274.1219037719.1522232776-193013352.1519340264 English Course: https://boka.sjosportskolan.se/bokawin?cid=2741&t=2&_ga=2.154518264.116285875.1522684364-193013352.1519340264 Checkboxes guide: Förarpaket: bestick - you will need this Förarpaket: litteratur - you will need this ICCI <10m Power Coastal - you will also get an international certificate, optional (the certificate you otherwise get is valid in Sweden) Welcome! More info: This is a 2-day intensive course that will take you from a beginner's level to a certified Inshore Yachtmaster. Learn how to read a chart (a nautical map), use the compass, avoid collisions at sea, identify and use marks and beacons and much more. If you want an international certificate (valid in many European countries) keep the box saying "ICCI <10m Power Coastal" checked. An additional fee of 450 SEK is charged by NFB (http://nfb.a.se/) (a Swedish boat organisation) to cover the Swedish certificate. Questions? Don't hesitate to write me a private message. /Joel

What we're about

Public Group

Experience the Stockholm Archipelago at its best. This is the group for everybody with a passion for boating and the archipelago. Travel together with other nice people and enjoy the fresh air and sea water!

Do you like day trips or weekend trips? Sailing or motorboats? Sleeping in the boat or renting cottages? We can stop at secluded islands for dinners, sauna or overnight parties! The possibilities are endless.

Both seasoned sailors and beginners are welcome to our events.

Let’s meet and go boating!

***About the group***

This group was founded in 2013 by Björn Isberg and me, Joel Ring. We started it because we both wanted to be out at sea with like-minded people.

As co-founder of this group, I have organized most of the activities so far. I am a certified skipper, and teach sailing and arrange boat tours for a living.

Since 2018, I own a boating company called "Sjösugen" (www.sjosugen.se), where I offer both boat training and boat experiences. I am also affiliated with "Sjösportskolan" (www.sjosportskolan.se) and "Saltsjöns Marinpool" (marinpool.se).

This group will publish paid events from time to time from these companies. But the group is also open for anyone to propose and arrange their own activities without any costs.

My wish is to host an active community with plenty of fun meetups.

***Propose and arrange your own activity***

All members are encouraged to suggest and host their own activities. If there is something you want to do, just click the "propose" tab and create a new meetup. If enough people join (at least 3 members), it will become an official event.

Please note that for boat activities, the skipper of the boat is always responsible for the passenger's safety. The meetup group itself will not take any responsibility in case of any accidents.

Welcome to the group! Join an event or create one yourself. Have fun!
