Day 3 – Karlskrona-Stockholm

Sunday 27 June 2010
Berkvara Harbour/Marina
56*24,032 N 016* 05,407 E

On our way at 0925 local time. Nice weather, air temperature 22*C, Winds W-SW 0-2 ms
Hardly any wind, we have to go on engine power. At 1100 hrs we pass mittgrundet in the Kalmarsund sound, still no wind. We set up the bimini-top over the cockpit, because the sun is burning down on us. Could be worse!

When we get past Kalmar and under the Öland bridge, the sea breeze picks up a little and we manage to sail the rest of the day on all sails up, wind SW 4-6 ms.
At dinnertime we get into harbour at Borgholm guestharbour (gästhamn) on the island of Öland. Position 56* 53.306 N 016* 37.922 E at 1840 local time.

In the evening we go for a walk in the town, not much to do here. Fix a couple of things and bunker drinking water again. In Karlskrona I did not dare fill the whole tank, in case it would still be leaking. But it did not leak. So now we can fill up tops.
