This morning I awoke to find a light dusting of snow on the hills – a late winter wonderland!! I like to wake early and start the day with a visit to the gym, a quick swim and 10 minutes in the steam room, although a port day arrival normally disrupts this routine.

At 1730 everyone was back on board, and with the sun making a few isolated appearances we slipped our mooring lines and retraced our tracks from the previous evening. As we headed out of Olsofjorden the sun appeared in all its beauty and made for a delightful sail away. We weaved our way through the myriad of rocky outcrops, with numerous summer houses scattering the Islands. It seems as though most Norwegians have a home to escape to in the summer. We finally exited the fjord and disembarked our pilot at 2215, setting course for Skagen in Denmark
