(visited by Silke Heilig and Wolfgang Vogel)

28-Jun-2003 -- This year for our summer holidays we decieded to make a trip with the sailing-vessel at the norwegian and west swedish coast down to Gothenburg and back to Fehmarn, Germany via Denmark. On our first day we started from Fjällbacka, Sweden into the Oslo Fjord and were very close to this confluence. Although the first visitor had told about the rocky subsoil we gave it a try - and were successful!

As you can see on the pictures the actual depth was something like 22m but we also saw the shallow nearby. As you also can see on the picture taken from the laptop (electronic sea chart, very helpful!) we needed several attempts to hit the confluence. We managed to leave without any bumps and set sail to our first anchor ground.
