Ulvoya (Raftsund) to Gulvika

Posted in : Bluejay

10 June 2019 Ulvoya (Raftsund) to Gulvika A bit of tourism North up Raftsund from our mooring.  Unfortunately, this was into the teeth of a North wind plus rain and grey clouds.  We saw the road bridge and then turned back towards the blue sky in the South.  Much more pleasant…. a very pleasant easy sail practicing our jibes before a lunch stop in Ulvagen.  Our detailed calculations suggested we’d have 0.7m depth clearance at the bar so we were a bit surprised to see no less than 3.8m.  More jibing practice after lunch and then to a perfect lonely pontoon in Gulvika.  This has picnic tables, a wood burning stove space for a BBQ.  There is loads of wood in the pine forest just to the North of the pontoon.  The lunchtime depth experience prompted us to recheck the depth sounder reading with a plumb line, and we confirmed that the sounder was reading depth below the keel, so the bar at Ulvagen is much deeper than the chart advised…or at least it was today.  And we finished the day with another great meal outside by the wood burner.
