105 Rocks – Kuorsalo – harbour

Kuorsalo

I arrived here on the way back from the Russian border and in pleasant, calm conditions it was a great spot. Since it was empty I was able to go alongside the substantial concrete quay. There was enough water for Zoph but you’d not need to go too far in. If it was busier you might have to put out a stern anchor. This is a ferry quay for the settlement, which consists of a load of slightly faded wooded holiday homes joined by overgrown, leafy green paths. The old gent sat on the quay fishing seemed to think I’d be OK on the ferry quay and so it proved. It would be a bit exposed in a strong westerly and probably horrible in a strong north westerly, but otherwise it’s a pleasant spot, albeit with no facilities.

There’s holiday homes in the woods but not much in the way of paths between them
