We were really lucky with the wind – Fjord sailing has a notorious reputation for either too much wind (severe gusts) or none at all resulting in lots of motoring. We hardly had the motor on. A constant SW wind saw us doing countless gybes all the way into the fjord to Vik one day and then with the same steady wind we managed to tack out over the next 2 days – always in awe of the fabulous sights surrounding us!
From the snow glistening on the glacier to waterfalls thundering down the hillsides there is a new sight around every bend – with some spectacular anchorages
We were tucked up in a tiny anchorage for our penultimate night – and arrived in time to watch the final set of the Mens Singles Final at Wimbledon. What a nailbiter and how tricky watching it streaming on a tablet!!
Well we are now in Bergen – the tall ships are due tomorrow and so we are not allowed to be in the harbour in the centre of Bergen so we are in the next bay along with a grandstand view. We have watched the Norwegian boat that lives here ‘practicing’ today with Fire Canons and water jets getting ready for tomorrows parade of sail
Our guests arrive later today – We’ll watch the parade of sail tomorrow and then head north toward Sognefjord and another adventure.
