For this season, Dolphin Dance has a new home port as we got a berth for this summer from a marina located in Hirvensalo. The main reason for changing to a new harbour is getting closer to the main sailing areas of the Archipelago Sea. The marina is located only about a nautical mile from the Airisto fjard, so this reduces significantly the motoring time out of the harbour. From our previous home port, closer to the Turku city center, there was almost an hour of motoring along a narrow channel before reaching wider sea areas.
The new harbour is located only a twenty minutes drive away from our home, which is good news when one has to work on a boat or check that everything is ok. We are also keen to make shorter evening/day sailing trips this year, as the sailing grounds are more accessible.
