One Long day of Sailing again

09 September 2008 | Mariehamn N 60, 06 E 19,56
A slow progress in Weak winds and drizzling rain

We were under sail from 8.30 in the morning to 6 in the afternoon to make it to Mariehamn. The capital of ?.land. The forecast told us about NE 12-20 knots but we never saw more than 8 of those knots, and most of the time less. Thus we made very slow progress, and since it was raining all day long, it was actually one of those (few) days when I wonder why I am out on the water in the first place..

Anyway, after taking a mooring bouy in the picturesque marina at Vsterhamn, the W side of the peninsula the town is built upon, and within 15 minutes being properly installed in the sauna, all 'hardship' vanished from my mind and the evening was nice in our snug cabin with yet another delicious meal prepared by Isabelle and a glass of red wine to accompany it.
During the day we passed Kkar where this picture is showing the church, and Degerby and then Lemland on our Starboard side
