In Tammisaari/Raasepori town, Degerö island, by the side of a gravel road called Jomalvikintie, near Skaldö ferry. See Citizen's Map Site.
Must go there... Hash... HAAASSHH! CHEEEERRRYYY!
Drove south to Tammisaari. Visited Lidl and K-supermarket. Then let my Nokia E71's female voice to guide me to the hashpoint.
I passed the point to see if there was a good place for car nearby. There wasn't, so I continued one kilometer NW on the same road to see Jomalvik channel. It's a narrow and shallow channel for small boats. The place has been on headlines during the past summer, in a sad way.
As I remember, the story goes like this (facts not checked): Ex-Formula one driver Jyrki Järvilehto, a.k.a. JJ Lehto, and his friend leave a restaurant in Tammisaari north harbour. They head to JJ's summer house by boat although both are drunk. They decide to take a shortcut via Jomalvik channel. They hit the stone base of a bridge. JJ is injured, his friend dies. Speed limit in the channel is some 10 km/h. Later it has been estimated that their speed had been some 70-80 km/h. It is not known, or at least not yet published, which one steered the boat. JJ says he remembers nothing of the accident.
OK, back to hashing. I drove back. The road was wide enough and there wasn't much traffic, so I left the car on the side of the road. Only one car passed while my stop. The hashpoint was just few meters off the road. The place was almost open with few trees. Dry ground was covered by grasses, heather and bearberry, I think.
Aftrwards I tried to find some geocaches in Tammisaari. Found one, lost interest on searching two micros although surroundings were nice.
