Today we were starting to head back to Bergen. We could in fact get there in a longish day but we have two and a half to play with, so we wanted to make the most of the time we had remaining. I planned on taking a thirty mile chunk out of the distance to Bergen today, with a route that should hopefully take in some nice scenery and combine it with good sailing, as we were promised a 14 knot wind from the NNW and with sunshine, albeit with frigid temperatures so it ...
I had really hoped that yesterday's weather would be behind us and that we’d have a better day today. It was with a sense of disappointment then, that I realised that it looked just about the same, low clouds, drizzle and air temperatures that we had in March. Today’s plan was to head to our northernmost point, the small hamlet of Hærland on the island of Atløy, at 61°21’.3N and 4°53’.5E which was some 26 miles to the north of us.

The fjord is called Masfjorden and at its’ head, it divides into two arms ...

This necessitated the acquisition of yet another chart portfolio, which I’d done first thing that morning. So, having said and done all that, we were off northwards, selecting one of the four main routes mentioned in the pilot and the one that our neighbour recommended.
