Airisto last weekend

Last weekend we visited Airisto Marina in Länsi-Turunmaa, Finland. It is a marina situated in Stormalö island. It is a well sheltered harbor but there might be some noise problems occasionally since it is one of the marinas situated in a short distance from Turku and pretty many motor boats seemed to already be going around the archipelago. However, this early in May Airisto seemed like a good opportunity since we wanted to make a not-too-long two day trip. Here some sunny photos!

 When sailing, Antti was playing with one of his newest toys: an anemometer.

 In Airisto, we walked around a bit and prepared some pasta.


Then we decided to climb the rocks around the island.

A beautiful evening and some others were still sailing.



The following day, on our way back, we saw pretty many ships - here is one of them. It was so close! Antti was excited about trying how his Nasa Marine AIS Radar functions. It seems very practical to be able to see where and how fast those large ships come and go.

  3. It appears to be exciting to travel with a new radar, and seems very practical to see where and how fast those large ships go.
