20. day 56 km (in total 858 km)

< Moikipää, Korsnäs - Korsören, Mustasaari >

It had been raining during the night, but morning were cloudy without raindrops. I started at half past eight and headed towards north. The wind was mild and coming from SW, which was excellent for long crossings between Moikipää and Raippaluoto. I felt quite strong today due to shorter day yesterday and paddled 3-4 hours stretches. I had lunch after 12 AM and it started to rain heavily. I was completely wet and it lasted roughly 3 hours.The visibility was poor, but I managed to reach Raippaluoto harbor at 4:30 PM. It was great to see magnificent Raippaluoto bridge and realize I made it.

During the heavy rain the minigrip bag in the pocket of life vest was leaking and when I was trying to take a picture of bridge my camera was not functioning at all. It was completely wet. I have tried to dry it up, but without success. So it means this blog will be without photos from now on.

Minna, who was paddling with me during mid-summer 3 days joined again from Raippaluoto harbor and it is nice to have company. Paddling alone is really lonesome activity.
