Korppoo, Finland --With Thursday for preparations, Finns took off for Midsummer in the country and along the coast on Friday. Most will report sick to their employer on Monday to recover.
Numerous crews of coastal volunteers and coast guard will patrol the waters for people still in the boats. The drowned ones will be recovered through the weekend.
One fellow passed out after driving his boat 20 meters onto land. Last year he knocked the windshield off, killing his wife of that summer. He was bending down at the time and came through with a few scratches. The man is unable to swim, and is bound to fall in the sea one of these years.
