Towards Haugesund

28 June 2011 | Bokn
William
We woke up to a grey morning, had breakfast and went to Sagvåg for servicing the motor (in order to keep the warrant conditions). After this through Haugesund and over Sletta to a small harbour with no service.
Haugesund is a largish city, known for its shipping, fishing, and industrial activities. It is also the home of a reknown film festival, a jazz-festival, and the Norwegian version of Oscar for musicians, among other highly regarded cultural events. The city is in two parts with a channel in between. Motoring through this channel is a feast for the eyes, as can be seen from above.
Sletta is an area north of Haugesund which is infamous for being treacherous in bad weather. Quite a number of ships have gone down here, and the sea can be very rough. We were lucky apart from a thick but manageable fog. We had radar and AIS, but would have made it without problems without.
