15:00 Stora Tandskär reached an sailed around with the foghorn blowing. An inhabitant spotted on the island who told that the colleague was on the way. An uncharted rock found on the W side of the island in 3.5 kn. Bow to shore on the N side, guided by the helpful lady. Careful inspection of the hull, rudder and the keel was made and no damage was found. After hitting a rock a slight comfort is given by the possibility of sharing the damned thing with fellow sailors and naming it after you (in the Navionics community layer).

Left the heavenly harbor at 12:15, with N 2. Taking own route S if Rosala towards Hanko. Going to pass a colleague's summer island, wonder if she would be there.

The island

Kuva
We went to Mauri and Pia's favorite hidden island today. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The rock formations show the millions of years it took to create this place. Everywhere you look the terrain is different. It's as if someone created the most perfect Japanese garden and left it for us to see. Barry
