Day 6 – Karlskrona-Stockholm

Wednesday 30 June 2010
Fångö anchorage outside Waldemarsvik
58* 10 N 016* 56.17 E

On our way at 1000 local time. Nice weather, Winds S-SW 6-8 ms
We pass the lighthouse Gustav Dalen late in the afternoon (1930) and decide to go for the island of Landsort southern Stockholm archipelago today. It is still a ways off but the winds are fair and the waves reasonable. So we go for it. Then the wind dies down…

2340 local time we drop anchor outside Landsort, in a nice cove at
position 58* 47.03 N 017* 50.17 E just SW
of Torö. We are very tired but happy to have got this far
already. We are in the Stockholm archipelago!!! YES. The least 15 NM we sailed with the help of the many lighthouses and lit marker buoys as navigational aids. Dark when we drop anchor.

Todays trip was 55.2 NM long.
