Some may have noticed certain irregularities in the recent posts. All recent blog posts lack picture captions. I have oainstakingly typed captions to all post pictures along the way. For some inexplicible reason Worfpress function looses sll image caotions after posting!!!!!!!!! And once posted.. I cannot re-edit the oictures without doing it all in html code… not an option!
So patience for now. If nothing else I will get back to updating posts at a later date!
For now must state that chinese water torture is probably more fun than trying to update wordpress blogs with nothing more than a smart phone! Heck, even Facebook works more reliably than WordPress!!!
We had to have a semi rest day.. so today we took it easy. Went by Reposaari to get water est wrll and shop for food… then continued a little way up north to the Merenkurkku National park isle Seliskeri
Another good sailing/ paddling day!! Southwinds continued and we zoomed along nicely. Maybe not so much energy to play too much.. but we were sble to travel along another 50 km’s with a smile on our faces. This time got some nice pictures and video with the gopro camera mounted on the kayak.
The sun dissappeared halfway thru the day but this didnt dampen our spirits.
Santakari is a nice sandy spit of sn island some 7 km south if Pori. Odd slatelike rocks and wildstrawberries dot the ground. A place for another visit at another time!
The best paddling/sailing day of the trip thusfar!!!
Sunny. Southwinds 6-8m/s all day long. We made good time too!
Travelled some 50 km’s, practically from Uusikaupunki to Rauma. Sailing now with the full sail was pleasant if not fun! Wave heights were between 20- 60 cm range and on a couple occasions we played around a bit by surfing in the following seas.
The day started beatifully. Winds had cslmed a bit and no sign of rain! Also we hot an iffer for sauna and lunch from one if Marko’s friends at Hakkeenpää. So after breakfast we zoomed to Hakkeenpää.
After a very refreshing sauna and a filling lunch we continued zoomin north past Taivassalo. The wind was weak but the direction helped us along very nicely! After almost 50 km we stopped st Vähä Hylkimys for the night. Located west ftom Uusikaupunki.
The day started grey and drab yet ended spectacularly in technicolour splendour. The steady and brisk southwind helped us northward quite nicely too! Not a bad day!
Also it was the first time to use the seadog sail unreefed through the day! Much fun!
