There is not much to report on today. We'd slept well, or at least most of us had for most of the night. We were woken by the GPS alarm at 05:20 and it was my fault. I’d decided to change the tolerance from 60m to 40m as we were something like 80m from the shore. However, as I’d laid out lots of scope (anchor chain) , when the boat swung onto a new heading with the wind change, she had naturally moved more than 40m from when ...
... amusing little anecdote here, or at least I think so. The wind gauge on the boat has two settings, true and apparent wind. The latter is the wind you feel as the result of your progress through the air – in other words, if there was no wind and you were travelling at 6 knots, you would have a 6 knot apparent wind and a 0 knot true wind. Similarly, if travelling with the wind at 6 knots and the wind was 12, then you would see an apparent wind of 6 knots and ...

We were off the pontoon at 09:00 and motoring down the once-lovely fjord (today we could see so little that it could be anywhere). Our route today involved retracing our steps for thirteen or fourteen miles when we could then turn north and enter Brandangersund, the sound between the island of Sandøy and the mainland. Once out of the sound, we would find ourselves in the next fjord, called Gulafjorden and after a ...
... On the chart, it is just where Austfjorden starts that one can enter the thirteen mile long Masfjorden, which unlike the other fjords mentioned, cuts deeply into the land, with steep cliffs on either side and at the peaks of the mountains, snow was still evident. In other words, it was similar in many ways to the gorgeous Nærøyfjorden that we’d seen on the 'Norway in a nutshell’ day. It is different doing it under your own steam, you can stop ...
... inlet at 60°45’.11 N and 4°57’.68E in a lovely, shallow anchorage called Hola, which in fact was suggested in our pilot book. Of course the wind, such as it was, was coming from the north so we had used the engine and this was switched off at 15:30, leaving us in the peace and quiet of this lovely spot. There are four houses around the periphery of the bay but I don’t think our presence upset them in any way, we were quite some ...
