This year May started exceptionally warm. During the last few days temperature reached over twenty centigrade, that has also affected to the surface water temperatures of the lakes. Lake Saimaa is over 12°C already.
Since the weather was sunny and the winds not too strong, we decided to have a trip to Satamosaari island. Actually the winds were that light from time to time that we had to rely on a bread engine, that’s an excellent way to burn some extra calories. During the return trip a light breeze moved us at speed of over four knots. On the island we had sauna and swam the first time this year. The trip was truly enjoyable.
This was the beginning of the sailing season.
