Re: Popular Norwegian Cruising Routes

According to my Windows Internet system there seems to be a security risk involved with the first site!?
And the second site could not be found?!

Roger..

Sorry about that...

The first link works without problems for me. (No security risk.)

The second link should be:
http://yachtmarine.com/DOCUMENTS/BERGEN-TRONDHEIM.kmz

Re: Popular Norwegian Cruising Routes

The Mandal route takes you under a brigde with only 18meters, so its not for taler masts.
Just outside Mandal.
And befor you get to Lillesand there is one more Brigde that is 19meters high.

Careka..

The bridge clearance is actually 19 m,so with the right tide and a loaded boat,your Lagoon 38 with an 18 m mast clearance should clear the bridge. However,any prudent mariner always checks bridge clearance and safe draughts when planning his route.

When living in Kristiansand,I sailed this route countless times and there are also other attractive alternatives.

Kalinka1..

The .gpx files must be imported into OCPN using the Route Manager.

Bergen-Trondheim.kmz downlods fine here. Could you try again

Careka...

Should not make any difference but please try downloading here from a new library I set up for popular tracks and routes around he world.

Yes,I agree,the Bergen-Trondheim route could have been more scenic closer to the coast but sometimes the time does not allow too many detours.

Download/upload tracks and routes here:4shared folder - GPX-KMZ TRACKS
