Arrived safely in Helsinki half an hour early and got a taxi to Helsinki Sailing Club where I found Williwaw the Rival 34 I will be sailing on for the next month or so.
Yes, it is raining. The Skipper Michael is busy trying to sort out one or two technical problems. The sailing club here has great facilities which I have already taken advantage of. It is a pity I didn't learn the Finnish for Ladies Communal Shower before I started exploring...........
Williwaw's position is N 60 09.06 E 024 53.48 Hopefully this site will pick up this position and plant a flag on the map above.
Tomorrow is a public holiday as the Finns celebrate the longest day. We are going to explore Helsinki and join in the festivities which probably means drinking too much. There was at least an hour of twilight last night but as we go north we should lose that.
