After floating several hundred feet through the surreal mass of stones, Fransson and Håkan became concerned about the damage they could do to the Maiken’s engine. So they decided to head back, thinking that they were leaving this strange sight behind. However, what they had seen turned out to be just a taste of what the future had in store.

As they inspected the yacht, Fransson and Håkan noted that the stones had scraped away some paint from the hull. As Håkan wrote on Fransson’s blog, Frederik and Crew on Maiken, it was “like we’d sailed through sandpaper.” Wanting to avoid further damage, they consequently steered a course east away from the rocks.
