Lake Runn is a very large, beautiful lake situated in the Dalarna region of Sweden, renowned for it's fresh clean water and great sailing.
Visitors can take advantage of the "Swedish Allmansratt" or right to roam. This means that you may land anywhere that is not cultivated and enjoy a meal cooked over an open fire or even a nights camping.
The sailing season in this part of Sweden gets underway around the end of May and continues into the early part of September.
The lake has it's own chart and direction of buoyage for those who wish to experiment with navigation. You can however, always see land so you cannot really ever get lost.
Runn Sailings own Inflatable Boat is always on standby to come and get you should the need arise.

Steve Trusler (Runn Sailings owner) has lived and worked in the UK for most of his life.
Originally from Hertfordshire, Steve worked in London for over thirty years in the Metropolitan Police. For seventeen years of that he was attached to the world famous Met Police's Marine Policing Unit. Steve therefore fully understands safety concerns and has many live rescues and years of experience in all types of power driven and sailing vessel.
Married to a Swedish national, Steve decided upon retirement to settle in Sweden.
Steve started sailing at the age of five when his father taught him to sail in West London, later moving on to cruisers on Englands East Coast.
Brief sojourns away from sailing have seen involvement with flying gliders, climbing and banger racing.
Life has now gone full circle and Steve has found himself back in dinghies !

Our 5.35m Excel Inflatable Boat is always at hand to take you to the wind, or indeed to return you to the dock should the wind fail or the conditions be unfavourable !
For this reason you need not worry about sailing away from or back onto the dock.
All water sports carry risks. Whilst we do our utmost to reduce these to a minimum injuries can happen.
