Project Norway 2011



According to the preliminary schedule the start of the trip would be at the end of the May from Turku. Two weeks is hopefully enough for sailing to Copenhagen because I have to fly back to Finland for work. I will be flying back to Copengagen in mid-June with my father and a friend to sail from Denmark to Norway where we should be in week 25. There are basically two route options after Helsingor: in case of persistent westerly winds in Skagerrak/North Sea, the route via Limfjorden would be chosen. Limfjorden is about 100M long strait across northern Denmark that connects Kattegat and the North Sea. This would give better wind angle for the North Sea crossing. Another option is the route via Swedish west coast and Skagen.

In case of good weather we are planning to continue straight to Stavanger which is about 170M from Thyborøn. Possible stopover harbours in the S-SW coast of Norway are for example Kristiansand, Kirkehamn, Egersund and Tananger.   

In Norway we are sailing north up to Bergen before turning back in mid-July. We are planning to explore especially Lysefjord and Hardangerfjord area and the archipelago between Stavanger and Bergen.
