Personal Comments:

Today was a day of restocking the boat, and reorienting ourselves for the journey back. Since we have decided not to sail south to Gotland we are now in the midst of planning a new route home.

After being on land for the past three days we were eager to get back on the water regardless of the fact that the weather was some of the worst that we have had so far. Although much of the day was spent motoring through the rain, it did prove to be a good opportunity for Sophie and Caleb to learn more about map reading and navigation.

Another high note is that after so many days on the boat (and far to many Digestive crackers) the team has decided to begin an exercise program for the remainder of the trip. Today was the first day of our new program. Despite the weather our motivation was strong and we all trooped out for push-ups and squats on the dock. Needless to say there were more than a few curious glances in our direction from the locals on this tiny island.

Also noteworthy is that Caleb, while wandering around the island, found his future wedding chapel. Any young ladies reading this who would be open to getting married on a remote Finnish island should contact him immediately.

Research Comments:

Today was primarily a travel day. No major news to report at this time.
