Bluejay sails to Reine in the Lofotens
Another epic day on the good ship Bluejay. After an interesting yet majestic night on anchor with fickle katabatics hampering sleep, the picture perfect morning sky and settled conditions were a welcome sight.
The downwind start and light airs meant a motor sail for the first couple of hours but then the wind came forward as forecast and with a full main, staysail and Yankee 2 the beam reach and flat sea made for a perfect sail to the Lofoten chain and destination harbour of Reine. From the moment we arrived the crew have been enthusiastically snapping away at the idyllic scenery in unbelievable conditions and a dinner of salmon with new potatoes, salad and homemade guacamole made for the perfect end to the perfect sailing experience. It really is hard to express the sheer beauty of this place and oh my goodness how blessed are we with this weather.
