Moreover I had promised Mercedes we would not make landfall in the little fishingport of Brantevik in darkness again and now we did just that.
Surfing in downwind seas helped by the leading lights into port helmsman work was demanding being on flybridge passing the narrow entrance. Once into calm waters inside the first wave breakers there´s only short time to reduce speed and turn to staboard into the protected small inner basin.
It all went well but these nonprotected small fishingports deserves respect (and probably local knowledge) when in windward and approached in darkness.
