The sailing and the company were great, as expected – the real revelation was Norway, which was stunningly beautiful, an intricate mixture of islands and skerries big and small, wonderful colours, villages and hamlets nestled into the landscape, all seemingly without end.
Norway went from being a relatively poor country to one of the wealthiest countries in the world after the discovery of oil in 1969. Stavanger is an oil town. If you have time, don’t miss the state Petroleum Museum. There are original design models of oil platforms and ships, a geological display, hands-on exhibits and a rig training escape room.
Stavanger also has an attractive old town – Gamle Stavanger, where you can find the Canning Museum. If you are lucky, on the day they might be smoking some sardines.
If you can spare the time, we think it is worth having an extra day in Stavanger.
Sailing The South Coast Of Norway
The south coast of Norway is an area of low-lying wooded islands where the options for mostly sheltered water day sailing are seemingly endless. Sailing from Stavanger Trinovante heads south and east along this beautiful coastal area, threading her way through the thousands of skerries and inlets.
There is lots of choice for places to explore ashore along this coast, including Egersund, Farsund, Arendal, Mandal and Kragero. These are all pretty towns where you can enjoy walking amongst the old wooden buildings. Mandal has a particularly nice beach. The Arendal area is a popular holiday spot for Norwegians.
From the moment you step on board, you will be immersed in everything that goes on on deck, from helming to hoisting sails. We aim to get you and your fellow crew members working as a well-oiled team by the end of the week.
This voyage will be mostly day ‘hops’ of 20 to 30 miles from one port to the next. Some of the coast towards Sandefjord has sheltering islands where we may be navigating very narrow passages such as the well known Blindleia passage.
Sandefjord is known for its Viking and whaling history. It now has a large merchant fleet and is one of the richest cities in Norway. Sandefjord gets lots of summer holiday visitors and is also known as the ‘bathing city’ because of its beaches.
We have chosen Sandefjord for the end of this voyage for two reasons. Firstly it is a transport hub which is handy for you – it is only three miles to Oslo Torp airport, and the train station is very close to where Trinovante will be moored. Secondly, Triovante has never been here before, and we like to explore new places.
All voyage notes refer only to possible itineraries – where we sail, passage lengths and the places we call into will be entirely dependent on the wind and weather at the time.

What’s included in the price?
All meals onboard
We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Obviously, if you choose to eat ashore, this is at your own expense. We can cater for most diets, but you must let us know about special diets at the time of booking. We cannot cater for special diets at short notice.
Ships rules are no drinking alcohol at sea or if we are about to sail. This does NOT mean Trinovante is a dry boat – it’s fine to have a drink in the evening when we are at anchor or alongside. We don’t sell alcohol on board so bring your own.
