Breakfast and cleaning of the boats. Thank you for choosing SailNorway and we hope to see you again on one of our other trips.
This programe is to be considered as tentative as we might have to do adjustments depending on weather and conditions. This concept is not about doing as much as possible on the least amount of time, but to sail according to the conditions that nature gives us. On board we have fishing equipment and kajack and we plan to make good use of this and ventures on land.
See you at Træna:)
