We've been slowly moving south

N 58° 14.681', E 22° 28.295'

While we were preparing our boat in Helsinki it was blowing from north to east for maybe a month. By then we already knew that when we leave it's going to change. 

Now we have been on the way for 10 days and the wind has been from south to west. Btw, we are trying to get to Kiel  which is southwest.

Tomorrow our luck might change. We are now in Kuressaare, Saaremaa, Estonia. If the grib files are right we could actually make some progress for the next couple of days. Hopefully as far as Bornholm, but we'll see...

The season in the Baltic Sea seams to be already over. Kuressaare is the only real town and marina in Saaremaa. Here we are just Iiris and one other visiting yacht (German).
