We finally moored in Särkkä after 20.00 in the evening. Quickly cleaned the Yacht and finally went home to sleep.
Excellent small adventure for the summer 2015.
Thank you all who participated on this tour.
We stayed overnight in Byxholma island (natural port). Erkki came to support us for the docking. Nice place to be. There are hundreds of these marked island in Finland to stay over. Thank you Uuusimaa Region to organize this (Buoys + Sauna + outhouse + fireplace organized by the regional government).
Somewhere in front of Uusikaupunki the wind started to raise and we also got light rain for the taste.
Just before Kustavi the forewind was heavy (blowing over 15 m/s) and it was raining so that we got totally wet.
When reaching Kustavi we decided to stay in Lootholma Marina (and holiday-center). In the local restaurant we tasted excelent whitefish and Pearch! Good Kitchen!
The new crew arrived on Friday night. Tomorrow there should be an early start, because the winds will be higher and we should be in Helsinki in three days....
We kept the sails up (sometimes little helped with the engine) until we reached the Uusikaupunki level. There the route started to be too narrow so we continued with engine alone towards Rauma. We still had to beat the clock. Nice sunny day.
We also met real sailing ships on the way....
Rauma from the sea. A lot of Industry and a large commercial port. In Raume there is the second largest Toilet-paper factory in the World! Happy Toileting ;)!
Good day - good sleep in the night.
What a nice sailing day!
