Charlie Kavanagh Baltic Cruise Part Two – The Sequel !

Renowned storyteller and raconteur Charlie Kavanagh is sure to entertain us with his continuing story of his journey to the Baltic.


The second talk with feature my favourite places in each of the countries we passed through on or Baltic adventure in 2019 – hear tales of near arrest in Dieppe, meeting old friends in the Netherlands, having a dramatic adventure a la Riddle of the Sands on the German Bight, see a quaint old Danish harbour, enjoy a remote Swedish island,  join an Estonian island fiddle and sauna party, experience the architecture of Riga, savour the beauty of a Finnish island anchorage, witness Sadler reunion in the Alands and hear of home connections and an Irish bar in Sweden. And folks, its all true. Don’t miss it, you might never go there, so this might be the next best thing!!
In the photos above – Stravaiger at anchor on Bjorko, Finnish Archipelago, –  Windmill at Willemstad, – Mica and Hulga, my zeegat guides  – and a wedding party arrives by yacht in Riga.
