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!
Our previous days paddle lasted til midnight. We landed at Gustavsörarna. An island in the middle of a big bit of water. Weather forecast had a highwinds storms approaching sometime today.. so we broke camp around 0500 and continued to a better camp location at Sandvik. The rest of the day was spent washing, fixing eating and sleeping..
Sunny day. Winds SW @ approx 10 m/s.. = headwind. After 19 km of trying to ho on, we made ashore st Tallholmen had an afternoon nap ( 4 hrs) before continuing after thr wind speed dropped to sbout 5-6 m/s.. paddled till 2300.
The days biggest event would be crossing Porkkala bay/ fjord! Notorious for choppy seas the bay can be annoying to cross. For once we were lucky! As we approached Porkkala peninsula the Northwind simmered down and the waters were readonably wave free. Piece of piss! Never been this easy!
