Rounding Lindesnes, the southernmost point of Norway, can be quite a challenge in gale winds – especially in a headwind. We managed all right, but when a human error resulted in a torn sail, we brought our boat into the sheltered harbour of Farsund to make the needed repairs. We have extra sails, of course, but at this point there is no need to rush.

At 01.00 we’ll head out to see again and continue up the southwestern coast of Norway. Sometime tomorrow we expect to reach the town of Stavanger. If all goes well, we’ll be in Bergen on Tuesday.
