(Lithuania) and Thermopylae Clipper
(UK) are all close to the Swedish fjords, with Astrid
(Netherlands) and Pelican of London
(UK) around Lysekil. Meanwhile Steppe
(Belgium), Miles to Go
(Belgium) and Qeenian
(Poland) are further north around Sotenas.Ocean Scout

Wylde Swan (Netherlands) is making her way into Risor to make a minor repair to an anchor and will then be heading back out the fjords tomorrow to meet up with others in the fleet before returning to Risor.
