Map of Krampmacken journey in 1995

In 1995 at the ten-year-anniversary of Krampmacken's arrival to Istanbul, Turkey, the ship made a voyage from Gotland to Saaremaa, Estonia. The voyage was the longest non stop sailing trip Krampmacken had done so far. The trip begun at the bay Bogeviken in Gotland on Thursday evening July 6 at 7:15 pm. 42 hours later the 7 people crew could stretch their legs on the little island Abruka ashore the town Kuressaare in Saaremaa. The distance sailed was 150 nautical miles.

The ship is only 8 meters long, because it was intended to be sailed and rowed on the rivers, and hauled on land, and only had to cross a relatively short distance on the open sea.
