Welcome to our website! Halventures is a brief narrative of sailing adventures on board Hal, our 35 foot Hallberg Rassy yacht. We purchased her in 2014 with the aim to sail to the Arctic and continue cruising with family and friends to this day. To see our latest updates, check out the blog posts (menu top right). We are very grateful for all the support we have received so far!!

So far Hal has taken us from the South & East coasts of England (2014) across the North Sea into the Arctic Circle, along the West coast of Svalbard to 80 degrees north and back again to Norway (2015). From Norway we travelled South to Gothenburg (2016) and through the Gota canal (2017). We spent two seasons in the Stockholm archipelago (2017-18), venturing out to Gotland, Estonia and Finland (2018). From there we went South again round Sweden to Denmark (2019). In 2020 we escaped for 5 weeks along the NW coast of Sweden, learning how to sail all over again with an 8 month old! Let’s hope the adventures continue!
