Sailing North through the Norwegian fjords.

After leaving the Caledonian Canal, we left Inverness in Scotland to Norway. The crossing was calm with no wind and after motoring for 46 hours we arrived at our first port, Tananger near Stavanger. We sailed north from there, stopping off in many of the beautiful fjords that cover this part of Norway.  Although we only travelled 220 nautical miles directly north from Tananger, we logged almost 700 nautical miles deep into the fjords. We had some of the best weather during the entire season even though it was chilly and you could sense that summer was leaving fast. Now at the end of August, we are nearly back were we started out near Tananger waiting for a weather window to sail south to Denmark.
