Yeeha – today I am star­ting my nort­hern sai­ling sea­son! The 3 mast bar­ken­ti­ne Anti­gua is wai­t­ing in the har­bour of Bodø in north Nor­way. She has taken 2 weeks to sail up here from Ham­burg. I am covering the same distance a bit hig­her and fas­ter.

A day later, the inter­na­tio­nal group comes on board. Some lan­guage mathe­ma­tics: Ger­man + Dut­ch = Eng­lish.

A gent­le sou­thwes­ter­ly bree­ze is blowing, while we are lea­ving the har­bour of Bodø, stea­ming into Ves­t­fjord. 50 nau­ti­cal miles of open water bet­ween here and Rei­ne on Mos­ken­esøya, one of the sou­thern Lofo­ten islands. Soon, the sails are up. The sea is mode­ra­te, but enough for some on the first evening. Others enjoy sai­ling into the evening sun, while the famous Lofo­ten wall („Lofot­ve­g­gen“) is slow­ly appearing out of a cloud.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
