The delivery voyage on the double ended ferry “Hornelen” from Turkey to Norway has finished already. It was a nice trip, and very fast as well: the ship made much better speed than expected and we had good weather all the way around except for a bit of rolling in the Bay of Biscay and on the North Sea.
So where I expected to be away for about 4 weeks I was home just after 3. Everybody involved in this delivery voyage was very happy with this outcome.
You can read more about the trip on the Redwise Maritime Services website, unfortunately for most it’s in dutch. Sorry.
And after arrival & handover of the vessel back to the owners we went home……by ferry (only till Bergen from where we took the plane).
One thing did stand out for me, and I knew this from my earlier visits to Norway: Norway is a beautiful, rugged country, really nice. I do love sailing through the Fjords.
It was also very nice to work for Redwise again, a very professional & pleasant company to work for, thanks a lot guys!
So now some R&R, a course and a holiday and then I’ll be ready to go on again for another trip per the 17th of October. Please do get in touch (via here) if you have something interesting for me.
