... called Hjeltefjord and about 22 miles away. There was little wind and what there was, was blowing from the south so it would be an engine day. It was very grey and cold and rain was promised for later. All in all, a perfect July day!
We set off at 09:45 and headed southwards, showering on the way after the engine had done its’ water warming. At around 11:30 the rain started, very little at first but settling in to ...
... a yacht coming the other way with a bit of a lean on that I started to have my suspicions and these were confirmed when another yacht, with an AIS transponder, was seen as going at 6.3 knots in a wind of only 6 and it was then that the penny dropped.

... through Bergen, interesting to see the different buildings and roads, not to mention Rhododendrons, introduced in the late 19th century and absolutely thriving. Huge bushes and a profusion of colours, simply stunning. Ulriken 643 is the cable car’s official title; it takes one to the top of Mt Ulriken, one of the seen mountains surrounding Bergen. The funicular services one of the other hills, but that's tomorrows story. We step into the line to the ...
