Re: The nichts

.... and not even in the water yet....

This time last year we were in Norway and loving the really long days. It was still chilly in the evening though, unlike today in glorious Stirling.

Re: Norway Pilot Guide: Den Norske Los

One thing we found this summer was ubiquitous 5G phone signal from Lofoten to Træna to Bergen. Amazing. We were very impressed by the coverage in our more modest cruising area there, from Silda south of Statt down to Kleppavika in Krossfjord. Also, more or less constant data access allowed cross ch...

Re: Inveraray Pier News

Not sure how a "liner" is defined, but they could certainly get cruise ships like the Majestic Line ships and larger on either side of Sgeir na Eireannach. Pretty deep water and a fair bit of space as I recall, but perhaps not for the Cunard liners..... Anyway they take the Lord of the Gle...

Re: Norway Pilot Guide: Den Norske Los

The statement on the above page implies that the PDFs will be updated once its all online? You could be right about that but I'm pretty certain that I saw another press announcement suggesting that the PDFs would be discontinued once the digital version is up and running. It may be a translation th...

Norway Pilot Guide: Den Norske Los

For those wishing to sail in Norway, it seems that the Norwegian Pilot, Den Norske Los, is to be published digitally online rather than in the current PDF format which will be discontinued. It is intended that the digital version will also appear in English, although the language button on the new v...

Re: Stavanger to Oban - any advice

We sailed from Out Skerries to Måløy on the way out, and did consider the Tananger option on the way back, but the prospect of two overnights without a windvane put us off that idea. In the event we came back from Kleppevika on Korsfjorden, some miles SW of Bergen. Both passages took over 37 hours, ...
