Journal Entry:
After about three hours of trying to sail we called the days race a draw and fired up the motors. As we were docking in Bögen topless women were beckoning us from the upstairs window of the restaurant next to our docking spot. Understandably we were intrigued, and a quick inquiry informed us that the regional final of the Miss Sweden contest was going on upstairs. Given that it was still raining and cold, and that there were topless women upstairs, we decided to stay on the boats and drink well deserved beers (looking back I can't remember why we chose this - unless it was the cover charge, and the realization of what our chances would be. Also might have had something to do with a dress code). Anyway, much beer was consumed.
