Bodø, with a population of 47,000, is 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle and is capital of the county of Nordland. The airport makes this a very convenient stepping off place for activities in the region. There are shops in the town and the main attraction is the aviation museum.
Bodø is memorable for us because Trinovante once attacked the city fort with musket fire in a re-enactment battle and the city fired back with cannon.
The plan will be to head for a secluded anchorage on the evening you arrive. This far north at this time of year there is no night. On the day you arrive onboard there will be 23 hours and 40 mins of daylight and 23 mins of twilight or what the Shetlanders call summer dim. Fine for chilling out after dinner on deck with a beer.
