The following morning we headed back to Skudeneshaven for the festival. Scott ran the passage and boat as an exercise in preparation for his “day skipper” course. He handed over to me only at the entrance to the harbour. By now over 300 boats were in the harbour for the festival. What followed was the most challenging alongside mooring I have ever done
The next two days were spent at Skudeneshaven festivale. The festival would not have been my choice of how to spend either my own time nor that of the expedition. That said of course it’s not about me and we did some great things, such as sending trainees aloft on the bosun’s chair.
