A morning full of worries, an after­noon full of joy – 19th Sep­tem­ber 2017

The morning star­ted with a mes­sa­ge that cau­sed gre­at con­cern. The Nor­we­gi­an search and res­cue ser­vice had recei­ved an emer­gen­cy signal from a sai­ling boat that had came into trou­ble yes­ter­day during the storm. Heli­co­p­ters had sear­ched the area alrea­dy last night, a coast­guard ves­sel was approa­ching. Nobo­dy had heard anything from the sai­ling boat so far, so the worst had to be fea­red. All ves­sels in the area – not that it were that many – were asked to assist, and so we did without any hesi­ta­ti­on. The coast­guard asked us to search Fuglefjord and Hol­miabuk­ta, and so we did with fee­lings of fear.

Then came the infor­ma­ti­on from the coast­guard that the boat had been found »in good con­di­ti­on«, the SAR mis­si­on was over. No fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on. All souls well! Very plea­sed to hear that!

We turn around and head for Raudfjord, whe­re we spend a lovely hour in the late morning in Hamil­ton­buk­ta. In the after­noon, Sep­tem­ber shows what it can do on a good day. Deep sun over rug­ged moun­tains, warm light on red­dish-brown rocks. An ama­zing after­noon!
