    Pentecost weekend in Ryfylke 2022

    Pentecost weekend is one of many beautiful weekends this spring. We left home Friday noon, heading north and then east, to Hjelmeland. This is a little town and the centre of a municipality that has islands, deep fjords and high mountains. Going ashore and walking around is always nice when we come to a new…

    Liten tur til Rossøy 1. mai 2022

    Så fin sundags- og 1. mai morgon! Måtte berre ut på sjøen ein liten tur før hjartemarsj seinare på dagen. Eg tenkte berre å gå ein sakte tur for motor rundt Fogn, kanskje. Men i Rossøysundet var der god plass ved brygga og det frista med ein tur opp på toppen. Her er det vidt…

  • 2017 season

    Sunday June 5 A short sail in light winds just around the island. I am so happy with the new sails. With the right trim upwind, she just stays on course on her own. I don’t need to touch the wheel for a long time. And the other tack: Karmøy and Kvitsøy, May 25 –…

  • Sunday 8.August

    Reaching in a good SE breeze. Both sails, 6-7 knots. Wonderful!

  • Kvitsøy

    We had a nice sail to Kvitsøy Sunday to Tuesday 5-7 July. I love these island communities on the outer coast. Rough and protected at the same time. Here people have found a living for hundreds and thousands of years.

  • Evening sail in June

    Sailing around Finnoy on an evening in late June. Steady NNW breeze. Sky is clearing up in the west. And soon: summer vacation 🙂

  • Sailing home from Bergen

    From Bergen and home I sailed alone. Followed the Tall Ships fleet out of Bergen Sunday afternoon, then sailed south to Austevoll, where I stayed over until Monday. Now the weather had changed, bringing wind (and rain and thunder), but it meant I could sail! The wind was fair also when I continued between Stord…

  • Thursday 24. July – Bulandet to Solund

    Also Bulandet was covered in fog as we woke up, and it did not clear until late afternoon. We left at six. There was a light breeze from NNW, so we could sail to Færøy. There the wind died and we motored across to the outer sound at Solund. Tried to anchor in a bay…
