We had hopes for good paddling and ling distance today, and aimed at catching both lowering tides. With just 3 hours of sleep we move south through the straight. Unfortunately, the current is not as strong as we had hoped and we make only 2,5-3 knots. The view is also not great and paddling through Ramsundetgets boring, to say the least. When we arrive at Ramsund we hope to find a cozy café at which we can warm up, but everything seems closed for the summer, and we are forced to squeeze in at a small table in the local food store. We console ourselves by eating cakes and get out in the grey weather to nap in our sleeping bags, put in plastic bags to protect them from the wet grass.
