This Weekend: Sailing Regatta & Shakespeare

Photo: Oskar Kihlborg,
This weekend (June 29th to July1st) is the annual sailing regatta, ÅF Offshore Race, filling Stockholm harbour with hundreds of sails and a festival atmosphere. The race starts in Stockholm with the contestants heading out into the Baltic, around the island of Gotland before returning... ending at the island of Sandhamn in the outer Stockholm archipelago.
The boats will be moored at the island of Skeppsholmen (location) and this is also where you will find the Race Village. In the Village you will find food & drink, performances as well as information about the race. Click here for a schedule of activities as well as race times. The best plaes to see the race start is along the south coasts of the islands of Skeppsholmen, Kastellholmen, Djurgården as well as the north coast of the island of Södermalm. My tip? Fotografiska museum should be a great place to see the start! Click here for a map of the starting line and best viewpoints.
Looking for something completely different to do this weekend? How about "Shakespeare On The Hill"? A potpourri of scenes from the Bard's most beloved plays and sonnets... all performed in English! Performances on Friday, Saturday & Sunday (June 29th to July 1st) starting at 6pm at Observatoriemuseet.
