Stockholm sailing craze


I was going to draw Slussen from above, sitting at the roof of Gondolen restaurant. But the view over the water was much prettier yesterday, so I went for that instead. Stockholm is full of sailing boats right now, with temporary quais everywhere for the participants in the Gotland runt (Around Gotland) race.

I love those daring sailing enthusiasts who sail all the way into the inner city, making the view even prettier than usual. It´s not an easy thing to sail here, with all the narrow passages and boats and ferries everywhere. They must know the rules of giving way by heart.
