Back to the Baltic: 49'er Skiff in Helsinki Harbor
Click for details - this one's nice, if I may say so myself. Although I do wish that radio tower or whatever it is wasn't quite so whatever-it-is-ish.
Taken during our shortest sail of the entire trip - 6/20/2012, Pihlajasaari to Suomenlinna, which was just around 4 miles and took about half an hour, not counting driving around looking for a parking spot, which was frighteningly reminiscent of trying to park in Park Slope (a veddy posh neighborhood in Brooklyn where everyone has cars but no one has garages).
We'd thought about taking a more circuitous route just to make it worth raising the sails. We were glad we didn't - Suomenlinna deserved every minute we could spare!
