Sailing for the first time and what an experience it was. The wind and the open seas! At the end of the trip, I had only one thought: I want to own a boat 🙂
The trip was part of an annual company tradition during the short, yet gorgeous Swedish summer. The past and current employees of my company get together for a day. It involves sailing on Lake Ekoln which is a section of Lake Mälaren. Lake Mälaren is the third largest lake in Sweden and Ekoln is the northernmost part of the lake. Towards the north of Lake Ekoln is the city of Uppsala.
We took the pendeltåg from Stockholm Central to Uppsala (costs about 150 SEK to and fro). At the Uppsala central station, we were picked up and driven to Skarholmen – a 20 min drive. The weather was cloudy initially. We got on to the sailing boat and set sail on the lake for close to 2 hours. One of the former employees stays on the shores of the lake where we had our lunch. After couple of hours, we got on to the boat and went back to Skarholmen.
