Calliste Log: We timed our arrival at the Kurushima pass perfectly to enjoy the full flow, but we found out that currents at 8kns is scary. At the end of the pass, was a huge field of massive whirlpools. The coastguard was worried and came to show us the way out. We were struggling mostly because we didn’t know to check in for the best passage to use, therefore getting ourselves into the whirly mess.
