... and the anchorage is relatively close to the buoyed channel and not too hard to get to.

Sadly, when we got ourselves into the bay that is formed between Långö and Trässö, there were a few too many boats there for our liking so we opted for another spot, just south of Häfsö (see photo of chartlet, we were by the top left anchor) where we dropped our anchor quite successfully and there we remained, secure despite the fact that it ...

... bay with Loftahammar at its’ head, it was pretty much on the nose but we elected to sail which necessitated umpteen tacks and this we persisted in until Julie got tired and then we motored a while until our heading changed and we could sail more effortlessly.
