Harstad to Reine (15th - 18th June 2015)
|We departed almost as soon as we launched. The photo shows the Fishing Boat factory.|
We had been kindly allowed to sleep in the big grey building with the fisherman.
|Rodskjaer to Lodingen. A tough beat to windward from 1100 through to 2000, It was|
pretty cold and a bit wet but great to be back at sea. Lodingen was much
nicer than I recall and we enjoyed an Italian meal in Norway
served by the Turkish proprietor.
|The gales through the winter had twisted the wind-vane so a bit of mast work was|
needed. I checked the rigging whilst I was up there - all ok.
|It's the devils own job to get bread that fit well on the grill but in Norway it's easy!|
|A lovely sail from Lodingen to Nusfyord|
|View looking back to the entrance to Nusfjord. The mountains sparkle in the crisp, clear air that |
no photo can do justice to.
|A light bite to kick the day off|
|Enjoring the weather. Although cold it was now dry and when the sun came|
out it was glorious
|And back to Reine; quite the most beautiful place I have ever visited.|
|As we moored up it felt like we had never left. We were in exactly the same place.|
As usual we were on our own.
|By now Phil and Rob had arrived and Chris was heading home. Next stop, the long sail to Kristiansund.|
