Towards Lindesnes

26 June 2011 | Høllen
William
There are a lot of tales going around concerning the rounding of Lindesnes, the southernmost area of Norway and the home of our most famous lighthouse. The currents and wind, together with the charcteristics of the seabead, often conspire to make the conditions quite challenging. The advice for making the passage as comfortable as possible is: go far from land, preferably at night (usually slacker wind), wait for favorable wind and sea.
We decided to go for Lillehavn (at Lindesnes), have lunch, and then go round. The weather turned out to be near perfect, and we experienced nothing but a pleasant sail.
In the afternoon we reached Kirkehamn, which is a peaceful place well protected from the sea. We were closing in on the west of Norway, and the sky had turned predictably grey with rain in the air. Dinner and a glass of wine, then to bed. We had one challenging area to go next day: Jærens Rev.
