Make Way for the Swedes
"If you’re hunting for a cruising sailboat that won’t limit your horizons, you’d do well to drop in on Orust. The largest island on the western coast of Sweden, Orust covers a mere 45 square miles and has only about 16,000 residents. Yet the island produces more than 50 percent of Sweden’s sailboat exports; roughly half of the island’s tradesmen build sailboats. In other words, sailboats are serious business on Orust.
