Subsequently doing the 80Nm long passage is well worth the effort. Under way from Trosa we encountered dense fog demanding full concentration on the radar all way.
Heading through the southern entrance to Stockholm though, weather was beautiful and with nature dressed in autumn colours this is a beautiful ride.
The name of the southern entrance to Stockholm is "Stäket".
Stäket has quite an historical background being the place where the Swedish army finally stopped the Russians from reaching Stockholm also ending the "Great Nordic War" 1721.
The passage is narrow and could be demanding if encountering passenger ships heading out to the archipelago. If you are a big boat it´s mandatory to send a securité message on the radio before entering.
