Our new boat is now located in Ålesund, north in Norway. To get there, we drove for 10 hours and parked the car at Ålesund airport to make it easy to pick it up after sailing our new boat home.
Snorre and Monica the previous owners sailed for a week to meet us in Ålesund, making our journey a bit shorter. It is very exiting for us as we have never been on a sailboat before, and have no experience in sailing and sailboats whatsoever.
This weekend there's a food festival in Ålesund and after having a few hours getting to know the boat, having our first trip, 50 meters to the gas pumps to fill the diesel tank, we had a nice dinner before sailing into the sunset.
Our friend Robert B took the time to help us sail the first few days, and for that we are very grateful. Everything is new and to be honest, what we know about sailing we found on YouTube.
The adventure is on!
