Hangonkylä, Hanko. Topo map. On the street Kappelisatamantie (Chapel Harbour's Road). Hashpoint is about 3 kilometers from the southernmost tip of continental Finland.



Drive there after swimming and having lunch. Distance from home is about 42 km, maybe 70 km by road. Probably won't make it before 3:00 PM. Then visit some geocaches.


Phone's navigator showed 65 km distance from home. I passed the hashpoint just before 4:00 PM. Then drove back and forth few times before deciding to park 120 m west by houses.

The point was on a street in residential area of detached houses. Hashpoint was well visible only from one house. There were trees and bushes on both sides of the street. A path led from the hashpoint to a rock on the north side of the street. There I found a triangulation point's benchmark bolt on 14.3 m altitude. You can see that in the topo map. Height of the hashpoint was 4-5 m above sea level. This time I also left a marker.

Temperature was about +10°C. Sun was shining brightly. Gale wind from the north made the weather quite chilly.

Check Hanko in Wikipedia. It's a nice little town with sandy beaches, old wooden villas and interesting wartime history. There's more life in the summertime than now.
