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 ...
... totally idyllic! Our route would take us southwards, bisecting the major fjords that run in from the sea and wending our way through the chains of islands and islets that separate these fjords. Starting from the north the fjords were Buefjorden, Lågøyfjorden, and finally Sognesjøen which is the seaward part of the 120-odd mile long Sognefjorden which I’ve discussed previously. Our plan for the next two nights was to anchor and we would get into Bergen some time ...

It was also cold and when the drizzle stopped, rain took over. In other words, a pretty dire day weather-wise. In these sorts of conditions, when we have visitors on board, I prevail upon them to stay below. The reason for this is to try to minimise the ingress of water into ...
... to face the day. This will be our routine henceforth whenever we spend a night on anchor or at least, away from shore-side showers.
Our destination today, rather than being to the north, was more to the east. I had spotted in the pilot book a reference to a fjord that afforded wonderful scenery and good fishing so that was a prospect that we couldn’t afford to miss. The fjord is called Masfjorden and at its’ head, it divides into two arms ...
An important date in some countries' calendar and one of some significance for us, in that we were able to leave the clutches of Bergen, as the day dawned bright and sunny. However, even on a day such as this, there is a late August feel to the morning, the air was quite chill and condensation fogged the windows and had formed drops of water on the surrounding metal frames. We normally only experience this at the beginning and end of the season but this year ...
