18th of June back to Särkkä

Today was not very nice weather. First of all it was cloudy - secondly the wind was absolutely against us. So after nice breakfast we propelled towards Särkkä. In Särkkä we had to wait for a while because the Regatta organized by Merenkävijät was still reserving our homedocks.

Finally we moored.

17th of June setting up the mainsail and towards Kitö

Firs wakie up then we navigated to the City of Porvoo to have Brunch. We found a very nice restaurant called "Posres" where we enjoyed fantastic breakfast. Enough for the whole Day!
 Porvoo is an old charming city that still has a lot of wooden buildings left. Old Porvoo is a colourful place with small artisan boutiques and Restaurants. Worth place to visit to any sailor (Yacht depth about 2 meter maximum).

 After filling ourselves we started to work with the mainsail. Finally we got it on the boom. Then we said goodbye to Mari who had go back to Helsinki.

From Porvoo we sailed to Hamari for Diesel and moreover to Kitö to Juha's&Mari's (a friendly port) - to enjoy summer evening.

16th of June to Porvoo

After work day we started from Särkkä towards Porvoo. It was quite warm evening and we used engine to reach Porvoo. The guest harbor was reached at 22.00.

Nice evening - we got also light dinner and some drinks on the bar in the port.

After a delicious breakfast and filling some extra fuel to the engine we started towards west. Afyer about two hours we were very close to Sulkaniemi. So we decided to visit there for a w.hile

Sulkaniemie was excellent choice to enjoy the company of other sailor and to trim the mast and connect all the wires (Lightning, radar and meters).
