Sailing to Norway in 2010

Valtýr in front of the new Opera in Reykjavik, just before leaving for Norway.

Motoring out of Reykjavik harbour , on our way to first stop Höfn on the east coast of Iceland.

Here we are in Höfn, a small fising village on the east coast of Iceland, our last stop before sailing across the Atlantic to Norway.

In Höfn our first mate Björn Árnason cooked Icelandic scampi while the cook Valur Valtýsson enjoyed a Viking beer.

And when we came to Thorshavn in the Faroe Islands, Birgir Enni captain on Nordlyset cooked a wonderful meal "Grind and spik". Whale meat and whale fat. If you ever come to the Faeroes you will certainly enjoy the hospitality of the wonderful people of the islands.

With Björn first mate and Valur cook on Valtýr are Janusz and Joelle our friends who just came sailing from Greenland on Vagabondelle. They have been sailing in Artic waters for over 30 years.

And then we sail on

Next stop Shetland Islands
