Upon touchdown back in the land where The Yacht Week all began, we knew this weekend was going to be one we would never forget... excluding those who glugged too much glögg of course. We dropped our bags at our humble abode - a 290ft steel schooner moored along the Skeppsholmen. All our favourite Yacht Weekers in one vessel for the entire weekend: a true recipe for revelry.
FRIDAY: AN ABSOLUT BANGER
We began the big weekend with drinks in the dream house of Absolut Vodka. We met, mingled and sipped vibrant vodka cocktails with our fellow Yacht Weekers in the very creative space of Atelier.
SATURDAY: KISSES IN THE CABIN
DINNER FOR TWO... HUNDRED PLEASE
After warming the cockles of our heart with one too many glasses of glögg... our Ubers had arrived. We hoisted up our frocks, fixed our bow ties and walked the plank. We hopped into our cabs and began the journey to a night of devouring, discussing and breaking it down on the dancefloor in the magnificent Magasinet.
Once the smorgasbord of Swedish treats were all said and scoffed, it was time to slide up the blazer sleeves, remove the heels and dance that delicious chocolate dessert away.
WE MADE IT RAIN
DJ Milo S & Bladtkramer were so damn good they had us dancing till only death could do us part. The dynamic Danish duo started the party and we didn't want them to stop it. They had us dropping it like it was hot and to be honest we weren't SORRY.
SUNDAY: BAE (BACON & EGGS)
The hangover and brunch went together like meatballs and mash potatoes: it's not always a pretty site, but one wouldn't be the same without the other. This brunch separated the men from the boys and the Yacht Weekers from the yacht weakers. We feasted first and then bid our farewells.
Despite the sideways rain and exorbitant booze prices, to say Stockholm was a mere success would be an understatement. It was the party of the century... slight overstatement? Honestly speaking, it truly was a weekend we will never forget. Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated our 10th birthday in big way.
Thanks to the fabulous Fabian Wester for capturing these awesome Stockholm snaps.
See you for round 3 in NYC!
