Sailing Guide





The Skagerrak is a strait running between Norway and the southwest coast of Sweden and the Jutland peninsula of Denmark, connecting the North Sea and the Kattegat sea area, which leads to the Baltic Sea.
The S side of the Skagerrak extending between Hanstholm and Skagen, about 77 miles ENE, is generally low and backed by sand dunes. However, there are several areas where steep cliffs face the coast. The coastal passage leads ENE across the entrances of Vigo Bugt,   Jammerbugt, and Tannis Bugt, three adjacent bights that indent the shore.
