... it was the weekend and it was warm, so we did actually see quite a few boats today, perhaps a couple of dozen or so over the 5 hours it took us to get back.
Getting back meant going to the sailing club called OTPS and it was here that we had arranged to leave the boat, berthing her alongside a nice high wooden pontoon and outside a restaurant. Here she would be nice & secure, with ...
So, with that in mind and given the choices of places and the wind direction (NW, where else?), I opted for a small harbour just a few miles up the coast called Kiviniemi. In order to make the day a bit more interesting, we would head further northwards past a couple of islands and then turn in towards the land before turning south again to Kiviniemi, about 12 miles in all.

... two separate occasions I spotted fishermen taking out their mobile phones to photograph us. I suspect that Varessäikkä may not have had many visitors, ever and maybe none in recent years as it conceivably may no longer be listed in the harbour guides – who knows.
