Sweden around in a kayak 2013 - Mårten Wetterberg

Late start, early night

Borrby - Tobisborg 19km

I woke up quite early, eager to get north in the headwind. At 4pm, it was supposed to turn to a good tailwind. After doing the dishes, I realised the headwind was rather strong in a kayak. I spent the morning on reading books, sunbathing and washing clothes instead.

Just after 2pm, the wind changed, so I started north at 2.50pm. Rather tricky, getting out behind breaking waves! Lots of bailing out to do after I got through!

After Simrishamn, I got stuck ashore after dinner, due to the high waves. They are too high on the beach to cross, at least if I am only to paddle another few hours.
