    At sunrise it was still a bit cloudy and I thought the sunglasses were the wrong choice. After an hour into the tour it cleared. The summer seems to end - at least that’s what the wild geese say. They started tracking so...

    Calm easterly winds, fresh but pleasant morning temperatures - so I set the course towards Tingholmen. It is at the eastern edge of the island chain. On the way the rocks change from the Phyllite on the western islands t...

    Second leg of our journey from Stavanger to Lysebotn. The last part was a real slog into a strong headwind. We had also stopped off half way to climb the 4444 steps at the Flørli power station, which actually turned out ...

    What a luck! Chains of shower clouds in the East and West - and me in the middle under blue sky. Dramatic clouds in all directions. I used the light NW wind and crossed Åmøyfjorden head on. I rounded the island paradise...

    Back to normal conditions for July: cloudy, gray with scattered showers. Light wind from the East made me go to the southern tip of Vassøy, curve around some islands close to Vassøykalven. Then I headed towards Lindøy li...
