It was a bright, sunny day but as always, the wind was blowing from the north, albeit at the time we left our comfortable and inexpensive berth (€10/day) in Jakobstad, it was more of a gentle breeze, about 10 knots. Moreover, the air felt a teensy bit warmer, so it bode well for a pleasant trip under engine planned for today. In order to get clear water to make our way northwards, we needed to head out to sea, out of the archipelago hereabouts. Effectively that ...

It’s about a mile and a half into Jakobstad from the sailing club and quite a pleasant ride, taking ...

... we had oodles of water. The first point of interest that we passed was the Nautor Swan yard – I assume that’s what it was, all we could see were the masts of two boats on the other side of a breakwater – big masts with 5 pairs of spreaders – we have two. On the opposite shore was a mega wood factory, with clouds of steam being given off and once past this and a couple of larger freighters, the shipping channel stops and the buoyed ...
