Leaving Rodoy after lunch, we headed downwind

We passed Svartisen, Norway’s second largest glacier. One can sail to within walking distance in the fjord and some of our friends have visited. For us, the weather was not so inviting as we had a frontal passage.

The waters just outside the entrance to Stott (Støtt) proved to be good fishing ground. We had agreed to stop and fish before entering. Salto was 20 minutes ahead of us and had 3 large cods onboard when we arrived. More than enough for an excellent dinner. You will not get fish fresher than this.

The harbour had a nice new pontoon and payment terminal. The renovation had, unfortunately, not included the facilities. You could pay for a shower but there were no one to be found. Just thew empty space from the old one.

We left Stott in light rain the next morning, downwind sailing again. The skies lightened up and the wind died as we approached Bodo (Bodø) so we motored. We had to increase the speed in the end to avoid a new shower. Bodo is the regional centre and has al the shops one could need.
