#1: coast from the confluence

(visited by Captain Peter, Volodymyr Kokorev and Volodymyr Sydorenko)

08-Jun-2002 -- After having discharged our Moroccan oranges at Saint Petersburg, we received the order to proceed to the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal ("Kiel-Kanal") and thence to proceed to Pascagoula MS, in order to load a cargo of frozen chicken for Russia.

Outbound the Baltic Sea this time we passed Öland Island. In the Eastern side of its Northern part there is 57°N / 17°E.

The coast was well visible from the confluence. The mapped Klappervall-buoy, advising the shallow water of Yttergrund (Outer Ground), shown in the chart was visible as well but we couldn't catch it with our camera.

Kårehamn is a fishing and leisure craft harbor.

The scenery presented itself on the radar screen as well.

We are enclosing another picture from the coastline, seen ahead when turning towards South.
