Who said, that the sailing season was over? Even if the weekends have been busy recently, we decided to have another cruise to celebrate the warm autumn weather.
We launched Sarastus and headed for Päihänniemi peninsula through small islets. A light breeze was blowing. Beaching was a quick one, as we kept main sail raised until the sand.
The return trip was exciting, or even bit scary. Near the Satamaluoto rocks the centreboard touched the rocky bottom, even if there should have been 3,0 metres, according to the sea chart. Fortunately we were on deeper water soon again. Clearly it’s better keep the rocks far, even if the map promised deep-enough water.
