20th of July back to the home docks

After the morning Mirja had to leave from Porkkala back home. After waiting some thunderstorms passed we sailed (steamed actually) together with Marsa to Helsinki.

We reached the home docks at 20.00. Sunny day, no rain no storms,
 Somehow nice and the same time sad the sailing trip for this summer is over. Luckily there are a lot of sailing days left for the rest of the summer and - of course - HTR!
Now you know what Santa Claus is doing in the summer (the skippers beard turned grey in the sun).

19th of July Rosala - Porkkala! Fantastic sailing day

 After good breakfast in Rosala we set our nose back to the east. In the front of Hanko we finally got wind. We practically sailed the whole day. Then we noticed that guest harbors nearby Barösund were full or unreachable. We decided to go towards Porkkala.

Long and beautiful day. Porkkala was reached at 00.30. Thank you ladies for patience!

In Porkkala we had nice last night drink on the deck.

18th of July Hanko-Rosala

When waking up in the morning the feeling was somehow ... tired, no energy at all. Luckily Mirja was in the condition to drive the yacht to Rosala, where we had a possibilty to taste the famous Rosala bread with herring and potato / Kalle's Kaviar. Tasty.

17 th of July - towards Hanko

The Morning was beautiful but practically totally without wind. So after we woke up (7.00) we engined towards Hanko through Tammisaari archipelago.

We reached Hanko's Itämeren Portti at 12.30. Fine warm day.

In the evening the girls surprised the skipper By taking him out for a reggae concert. The finnish reggae star Jukka-poika had a concert in Hangon Casino.

Fun evening. The first GT was wonderful...  but the next morning....
