Departing Norway (delayed port)
Posted in : Oriole
Cracking morning after strong gust at 5.30am woke us all. Bright but very cold (snow on the hills). Got out the staysail and practised lots of tacks with two headsails. Getting to grips with the running backstays. Arrived Fedje just after 2pm before the forecasted gale arrived. Afternoon was spent exploring local carpet bog and passage planning for offshore passage to Shetland tomorrow. Fine evening meal prepared by Bill and Jo. Bar and shower block shut early… boo hoo.
