13-May-2010 -- After picking up my father-in-law's sloop from the Swedish Hallberg-Rassye wharf, where it had undergone some refurbishment over the winter, we once again were going to pass very close to this confluence.
By asking nicely a couple of hours before we got there, I got Halvor and Tone to agree to make the small detour, at the end of a very long day indeed.
The easiest way to reach the point from the south is to simply follow the 11E longitude line, that way you avoid all the shallow rocks on both sides of the channel. The way out to the west similarly follows the 59N latitude, while there is plenty room at the confluence itself.
Following the chart plotter very carefully, we motored slowly due north to the point, making a sharp left turn just as we got there and then exiting due west.
Since the GPS antenna is located near the end of the boat, on the right side, the middle of the boat where I was standing passed directly over the confluence when the GPS showed a 1 meter offset to the north side.
Even with all the photos I took both coming and going, the total visit probably didn't take more than 3-4 minutes extra compared to going directly to our Hvaler harbour at Viker. :-)
