04-Oct-2003 -- The weather was typical fall weather: somewhat windy and occasional showers with heavy clouds. This confluence is approximately 2 km from the nice village of Bromarv that has a small pier for leisure boats to visit. The place is in a bay connected by a few inlets to the Finnish Gulf
My parents-in-law have a summer cottage approximately 7 km from the confluence and I used to sail on these sheltered waters when we had a 18-foot sailing boat. This time I visited the location with outboard motor boat as I just had taken our current sailing boat to be lifted for winter.
There were few people at sea, only someone fishing. I approached the confluence from north, the wind was some 7 m/s from south. Keeping my eye on the GPS, I navigated along 23rd longitude until I passed 60th latitude. Then I turned off the engine and used the oars to hold the boat approximately on the confluence. There was some problems because I managed to use too much force and broke one of rowlocks.
needed to use the engine to hold the boat against the wind, thus not all photos are taken exactly on the point but all are from within 100 meters.
