Season 2017 in Thirteen Photos

Here are the thirteen photos that best represent Dolphin Dance's sailing season 2017.

The first sail of the season on the 4th of May 

Great sailing through the Southeastern Åland Archipelago in June.

Dolphin Dance in our cruising club's island base in Åland (June 2017).

We crossed the Åland Sea on the 28th of June and spent the night 
 in a beautiful anchorage in Stockholm Archipelago.

We visited Öja (Landsort), the Southernmost island in Stockholm Archipelago 

Ringsöfladen (58° 44' N, 17° 26,6' E) in the east coast of Sweden was our this year's southernmost point and thus our turning point for the summer sailing trip.

We continued to Lake Mälaren via Södertälje Kanal 
and anchored by the lake as the night was calm.

One of the most spectacular anchorages for this season (Northern Åland, July 2017)

We continued sailing in the Autumn sometimes in stronger winds.  

The first weekend of September in Hitis Archipelago. 

Sunday the 17th of September was Turku Day and the celebrations 
ended up with traditional fireworks show. 

In the late September, Northern Europe got a period of warm Autumn weather. Thus, I decided to take an advantage of the Indian summer, and head for one-night trip to the nearby archipelago.

The last trip of the 2017 was on the 1st of November. This was a record long season for us as she was launched in early April and lift out was on 10th of November.
