The distance between these two bridges that are opened is easily motored in the 30 minutes’ time. However, we calculated the length of the route incorrectly and were motoring slowly and watching the surroundings. We were almost sure that we would not make it to the opening but luckily, the southern bridge stayed open during the whole eight minutes and we made it just in time!
We had southerly winds during the whole day so we motored headwind through the day. After passing the canal, we kept motoring towards south and planning where we should overnight. First we planned to stay at Kulkan, where we stayed last year in the end of our sailing trip. Since the southerly wind was good and the waterway towards Stockholm was going to turn towards southwest, we decided to sail a couple of hours towards Stockholm along the busy ship lane. In the evening, we arrived in Furusund where we spent the night.

A lovely, miniature Swedish house and a lighthouse were built on the rocks in the northern part of the canal.
