We then left for Ingmarso and were lucky to find a place on the long bridge pontoon to shore, having to miss a large motor boat and still come parallel to the quay with the wind behind us. Lena, the harbourmaster helped us as she often did. We tied up and other boats arrived round us while we wondered how we would be able to leave. Ingmarso was as lovely as ever and we both regret that this harbour will close at the end of the season as both harbourmaster and boatyard owner are retiring.

The Yard also houses a quite good open air restaurant and nearby is a good food shop. The moorings are free but absolutely no services are provided, no water, toilets, showers, electricity, nothing. It does attract strange yachts and one inhabitant is a 3-4 deck motor yacht about 20 metres long. It is much too large to fit into most marinas and this spot with restaurant and wrecks on one side a pretty islands on the other is a good spot to visit. In addition ocean liners silently go by on their way into Stockholm every now and then. Many prosperous people live here at least in summer and this is an attractive estate.

We will be off to Norrtalje next attending a music festival and hoping not to have strong easterly winds.
