The first hot weekend of this summer came finally. On Friday it was between a strong breeze and moderate gale, but by the evening the weather became more optimal for family sailing. The westerly breeze let us sail to Laajahiekka without any tacks. In front of Lintusalo island we were shown a beautiful sunset too.

Laajahiekka beach is a nice place in Lapinsalmenmaa island. The available amenities are a lean-to, toilet and naturally couple of campfires. The sandy beach itself is long and its sand is fine.

The same westerly breeze took us nicely back to Sarviniemi. The whole crew enjoyed beam reaching in a moderate breeze.
