Allthough odd to manouver Dora Mac from a flybridge full of snow it´s allways a great feeling coming out to sea on the first tour of the year with all systems working.
Heading through Nappstraumen in headseas from 25-30kts of wind I had the tidal stream with me. It created some very nasty seas and taking spray all over Dora Mac I had my first experience of icing the superstructure,pilothouse and windows. Passing through narrow straits and loads of islands south of the Ballstad peninsula needed full attention on the radar and 3 hours after departure I made landfall in Gravdal where Dora Mac is now moored until haulout March 22.
